The OPNS Provider Services Department under the Director of Provider Services, Sandy Harris, ensures that every physician in our network has been approved only after a thorough credentialing and certification process. Physicians are recredentialed every three years in order to ensure their continued adherence to OPNS policies.
As a member of OPNS, you and your practice benefit from the support we provide for credentialing and recredentialing in the many health plan contracts offered through our network.
OPNS serves as a liaison between our physicians their staff and the contracted managed care plans to coordinate the resolution of provider inquiries and problem resolution. We arrange informational and educational programs for office managers, office staff and billers so they can improve their skills and better serve their patients.
