Short Takes – August 2018

Regulatory Update – Justin Gilfert

The North Carolina Department of Insurance currently requires a provider application be evaluated.

If incomplete, that outreach for missing information be completed within fifteen days of the application’s receipt.  A 2017 North Carolina senate bill (NC SB 609) sought to change the outreach time to within five business days. Aperture has been monitoring this pending legislation since its introduction, and has received an update that the bill has failed, dying in committee. Aperture monitors credentialing legislation around the country to stay aware of changes that could impact the Primary Source Verification process.
