We outsourced our practice’s credentialing to Bikham in November 2018. Their team not only got us 8 major insurance contracts by January 2019 but also helped in re-negotiating our BCBS contract to get us a 30% reduction rate as opposed to the 50% reduction that we had initially
It was a major challenge to get through Medical for our Chiropractic practice. We had applied and had received a rejection letter. Bikham’s cred team appealed and followed this up right to the point that we got the contract within 3 months
As a mid sized lab doing over 4000 tox tests per month, we were unable to submit at least 25% of our claims due to credentialing issues. We contracted with Bikham in early 2019 and by July at least 70% of our required contracts were in and that improved our revenue tremendously.
My Medicare enrollment application had been rejected twice. BCBS said their panel is closed. That’s when I contacted Bikham, and they found out the errors on my Medicare application and got that approved in exactly 78 days, and they appealed and got me in network with BCBS FL as well. Kudos to their team !
Bikham’s credentialing team has great experience and they’re doing a great job. I have my major 5 private payer contracts (BCBS, Aetna, Cigna, UHC and Humana) in under 90 days, which is a great TAT.
