Provider Enrollment Specialist Certificate

Provider Enrollment Specialist Certificate

As an enrollment specialist, you are responsible for the first step in ensuring that your organization gets paid. In fact, enrollment specialists are pivotal employees in collecting payments for their providers and facilities. Demonstrate your mastery of the provider enrollment process and prove that you have the expertise required to ensure prompt enrollment by earning the Provider Enrollment Specialist Certificate (PESC).

For more than two decades, DecisionHealth has filled a void by connecting provider enrollment specialists with industry experts and veterans. We have established ourselves as the leader in enrollment guidance by hosting the National Provider Enrollment Forum, which delivers two and a half days of engaging education and training to credentialing specialists, provider enrollment professionals, and enrollment managers. To better serve enrollment professionals, we’ve turned our attention to giving you the recognition you deserve through the PESC – a distinguished certificate to validate your expertise in this growing market.

Earning the PESC provides you with the opportunity to:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in the enrollment process
  • Keep your skills relevant and competitive
  • Identify any knowledge gaps and use that information to guide your future training
  • Advance your career and potentially earn a higher salary
  • Express your commitment to lifelong learning and increase job skills confidence

The PESC is awarded after passing a 50-question assessment that will test your knowledge and understanding of the various enrollment forms, specific terms and definitions, compliance risks and penalties, and the PECOS enrollment process. You must successfully answer 80% of questions in order to pass.

Whether you work at a physician office, home health agency, hospital, rural health clinic, or any other setting, don’t spend another day feeling undervalued and underappreciated. Demonstrate your important role in ensuring successful enrollment and uninterrupted billing. Take the assessment right now and prove your worth – to yourself and to your organization!
