new physician joins existing practice

  1. Default new physician joins existing practice
    New Call-to-action
    If a new physician joins an existing practice and the credential process is not complete but starts seeing patients, can the other existing physician who is credentialed countersign the charts for this new doc?

  2. #2
    No... his/her claims will process out of network until credentialing is complete
