ADA Credentialing Service launches nationally
September 12, 2016
The ADA announced Sept. 8 the national launch of the ADA Credentialing Service, which was developed in an effort to help simplify the credentialing process and reduce administrative burdens for dentists.
The new technology, powered by the Wonderbox Technologies Enterprise System, allows member dentists to enter their credentials into a securely designed portal through ADA.org. This information will be available by request to all payers, including insurance companies, federal agencies, hospitals and employers.
Payers, hospitals, employers and third-party administrators will use a separate ADA website link to access the ADA Credentialing Service and download the provider information.
The joint project replaces the current method where dentists must respond individually to each payer request for credential information — a process that can be slow, cumbersome and can take months for approval. The ADA Credentialing Portal offers a one-stop shop with accessible accurate information and supporting documentation.
The ADA Credentialing Service is free to ADA members and non-member dentists. For more information or to register, visit ADA.org/credentialing
