Hi everyone- I'm hoping I can get some insight here. I know this kind of goes along with another post that was posted about Medicare. I am a newly licensed NP and may have found a job with a physician at a Pediatric office. The trouble is, he will not sign a contract with me nor consider me an employee until I have all my insurance credentialing done so they could paid for patients that I see. So I've started the process, but it is so mentally exhausting. I finally got a CAQH ID and have started filling out that application. Someone today from Cigna told me though that I still need to contact each individual insurance company that the office is with to credential with them. This office had about 20 different companies that they are contracted with. I've also heard credentialing can take 60-90 days. I really don't want to wait 60-90 days to maybe sign a contract with him, and I am currently working at a hospital as a per diem RN which has been difficult to get hours. I need to work. I'm thinking about just bailing on him and finding something else, anything else. Even if it's something I'm not completely happy with, but could tolerate for atleast a year. Does anyone have any advise or words of wisdom? Anyways around this billing issue until my credentialing comes through that is legal? It's a small office, so I don't think they want to sit on bills for months before they can submit them for me.I have never heard of anyone else having this problem when getting their first NP job. I hope this rambling makes sense, I'm just really frustrated.
