Welcome to Medical Staff Services at Carolinas Healthcare System. Medical Staff Services strives to provide credentialing services to the medical staff and allied health professionals in a professional and timely manner.

Please watch our video to learn more about our paperless centralized verification process for completing payer enrollment and clinical privilege requests.

Through our Centralized Verification Office (CVO) we have established a uniform application which collects information for both clinical privileges and payer enrollment that includes commercial managed care and government payers. Due to the time-sensitivity of this information and levels of approval, it is imperative that you submit your application with all supporting documents within 10 days to avoid potential delays in your scheduled start date. Once you have exceeded 10 days we will work with your onboarding team to identify a new start date which may interfere with previously established contractual expectations.

To ensure that you receive the needed support you will be assigned a personal Intake Coordinator who will partner with you in document and data collection, and a Credentialing Specialist who will perform all of the needed research on your behalf for both Initial Appointment and Reappointment. Overall, our efficient credentialing process occurs in three phases which include:

  • Phase I: Intake and Data Collection
  • Phase 2: Research and Primary Source Verification
  • Phase 3: Approval and Enrollment
