Doctor and Patient

Contracts are the backbone of medical and dental organizations because they provide access to patients and are the vehicle for your practice income. The process of establishing and maintaining payer reimbursement contracts requires experience, relationships, and knowledge to navigate the system.


Catalyst employs an expert team of specialists in contract procurement, evaluation, compliance, and credentialing. Our team becomes your outsourced managed care department. Catalyst strives to maintain strong relationships with payers at local, regional and national levels.

The Credentialing and Contracting Process

Credentialing is the process by which insurance carriers, facilities, and hospitals verify that a medical provider meets various quality and regulatory standards. Entities do this by reviewing items such as an applicant’s education, medical licensure, state and federal registrations and certifications, professional liability coverage, as well as many other documents. This time-consuming task requires precise attention to detail and follow through.


Catalyst Consulting assists providers in determining which insurance carriers and networks to pursue participation status with. Additionally, we maintain your CAQH database as required by the carriers. Our credentialing specialist completes the onboarding process and loads all required documents into our secure database.  Applications are completed for all plans requested and tracking and reporting on the status of your enrollment are performed until you are loaded in the carriers’ databases. We provide ongoing updates to you and your staff throughout this process.  Your credentialing specialist will also obtain fee schedules from contracted carriers and provide you with those to be utilized in the billing process going forward. Catalyst offers an ongoing Credentialing, Privileging and Contract Maintenance program, which you can opt to enroll in at the completion of your initial enrollment.
