Pharmacy Credentialing
« on: July 29, 2014, 10:40:10 AM »
Has anyone ever credentialed a pharmacy?  I am looking for information to know how to quote a rate.  I see what needs to be done and the processes, but I want to make sure that I am charging a fair rate for them.

Thank you.

I've done a ton of credentialing, but no pharmacy.  Can you tell by the process how much time it will take you?  I try to estimate my time and bill accordingly.

A very long time ago I had a local pharmacy ask me about this.. I had to refer them out. Pharmacy billing is MUCH much different, They don't have to credential in the traditional way, they credential with the various Med plans.. for example: Medco. It's a completely different process. Wish I could give you more info.
