Physician credentialing faq
Fill out your application as completely and accurately as possible. If you supply incorrect or incomplete information, hospital credentialing staff must spend valuable time searching for correct addresses and/or phone/fax numbers, which could cause unnecessary delays with hospital credentialing. Please remember, the responsibility for providing accurate credentialing information lies with you, the applicant. Make certain that the professional references provided have current (within the last 24 months) personal knowledge of your current clinical competence, ethical character, health status and ability to work cooperatively with others. One of your three references must be in your specialty.
Provide a complete and accurate listing of current and previous affiliations and training programs, and a complete history of your professional liability coverage for the past 10 years (if applicable). Any gaps in your coverage history must be explained. You must provide explanations of any gaps in time. A time gap ofless than three months’ duration must be explained in writing by you; for time gaps of three months or greater, a contact must be provided for verification.
Return your complete application in a timely manner and allow sufficient time for processing. Do not wait until you have obtained a license. Hospital credentialing and the licensure process can work in unison. The credentialing process does not begin until your completed application has been received by the Lloyds Credentialing Services Department. A photo and all required documents must be provided.
