Frequently Asked Questions
about CheckMedic:

Why should I use CheckMedic instead of another service to manage my credentials?

Frankly, there are no other services like CheckMedic. It's the first solution that empowers providers like you to create a verified and secure MedPass containing your credentials and information and then manage and maintain it as needed. CheckMedic continually monitors your credentialing data that can change over time, notifies you when renewals are due, and more.

How is CheckMedic better than traditional credentialing?

Traditional credentialing is a labor-intensive process prone to errors, requires massive paperwork, involves long waits for peer references, and has to be repeated every time you have a new appointment. Compare that to CheckMedic – a paperless, web-based solution and the last credentialing app you'll ever fill out. After you create a custom MedPass with your credentials and information, CheckMedic continually monitors credentialing data that can change over time, notifies you when license renewals are due, speeds peer referencing and can be accessed from any computer, laptop or smartphone. So you can start seeing patients in days, not months.

I’ve never heard of CheckMedic. How can I be sure it works?

You can be sure CheckMedic works because it meets and exceeds standards for primary source verification set by The Joint Commission. It's the latest innovation from Verisys, the leading credentialing verification organization nationwide and the most objective source of publicly available data on health care providers. Verisys Credentialing Services have been exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association. Verisys also is fully accredited by URAC and certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

The application looks complicated. How long will it take to complete?

It’s actually quite simple; many providers complete their application in 30 minutes or less. After you create an account, CheckMedic automatically pre-populates as many fields of your application as possible and lists what documents are needed for completion. You can postpone completion at any time, and then pick up later exactly where you left off. You can also appoint a “provider manager” to complete your application for you.

What credentials and information are on my MedPass?

Your personal MedPass contains all the credentials and information needed by a medical staff, insurance company, prospective employer or other party interested in affiliating with you, including:

  • State and business licenses
  • Board specialties and certifications
  • DEA and other registrations
  • Liability coverage
  • Office location, staff, services
  • Work history
  • Health care affiliations
  • Academic and hospital appointments
  • Insurance, practice and personal health disclosures
  • Peer reference contacts
  • Professional associations
  • Awards and commendations
  • Medical education and training

Once you allow an organization to view your MedPass, you will not be required to provide them with any other standard credentialing information. You can even download a FREE CheckMedic app (available in the near future) to access your data from your smart phone or tablet.

Can I put my CV on my MedPass page?

Yes. In fact, we encourage you to upload as much information about your professional career as possible, from your curriculum vitae and resume, to medical licenses, certifications, awards, manuscripts, research, your photo and more. You can also track your CEU's.

I’m new in the area. How can CheckMedic help me grow my practice?

Through the CheckMedic network, you can connect with hospitals, medical centers, physicians groups and other organizations — potential employers who can be confident that your credentials are accurate and have already been checked and verified.

How do I connect with health care organizations?

Easy. After your MedPass application is complete, just log on and select “My Connections” in the navigation dashboard to search by name, city or state for organizations with CheckMedic account. Then click REQUEST next to those that interest you. You’re connected as soon as they accept your invitation.

Can CheckMedic connect me with consumers?

Yes. Now in development is a robust "Physician Finder" service that will enable current and prospective patients to locate your profile when searching for someone with your qualifications and expertise. While this service is free, there will be a nominal charge for downloading publicly available data in a provider's MedPass. Every time your MedPass is downloaded, you'll receive a revenue share credited toward future CheckMedic renewal costs.

How do I connect with health care organizations?

Easy. After logging on, select “My Connections” in the navigation dashboard to search by name, city or state for organizations with CheckMedic accounts, and click REQUEST next to those that interest you. You’re connected as soon as they accept your invitation. Use the same process to connect with other providers.

What does CheckMedic cost?

Annual fees range from $60 to $360, depending on your provider type. After the first year, you can switch to quarterly or monthly payments. Your organization may also choose to pay your fee for you.

How does CheckMedic protect my information from hackers?

Nothing is more important than the security of your data. That’s why we use https instead of insecure http protocols to ensure that your information cannot be forged, intercepted or diverted. For additional security, always log out of CheckMedic and close the window when you’re done with your session.
