Aetna Provider Enrollment
Aetna is a managed health care company in the U.S. that provides traditional and consumer-directed insurance coverage. This insurance provider has been providing consumers with health care coverage since its founding in 1853. Consumers who have Aetna insurance may have coverage for medical, dental, pharmaceutical and behavioral health services, along with long-term care and disability plans. Aetna sells primarily through employer-paid insurance programs and Medicare, and is now a subsidiary of CVS.
At Bikham Healthcare, we can help a variety of health professionals who need to bill Aetna as an in-network provider, such as physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, dentists and hospitals.
Medicaid Insurance Credentialing
Through Medicaid, the federal and state governments partner to share costs. Many public and private health professionals offer Medicaid services. Unfortunately, getting paid for rendered medical services is a hurdle many providers face, which is where Medicaid insurance credentialing and enrollment comes in.
Medicaid insurance credentialing can be a long process for health care providers, and many new physicians are surprised by how long this process can take. However, working with a partner like Bikham Healthcare can make the process of completing a credentialing application fast and simple. If you have questions and concerns about credentialing, we can provide you with the information and answers you need.
