An Arizona health care executive, Alan S. Cohn leads Avesis Incorporated, a dental and vision benefits carrier. In order to stay up to date on the rapidly changing insurance field, Alan S. Cohn maintains membership with the National Association of Vision Care Plans (NAVCP).
Midway through 2015, the NAVCP released a statement regarding its efforts to restructure the vision provider credentialing process. The organization established a committee to create a universal method that makes it possible for physicians to obtain a single credential for all vision care plans in which they participate. The overall goal was to reduce administrative work so vision professionals can dedicate more time to patient care.
By the end of 2015, the association launched its streamlined process. With the assistance of Aperture Credentialing LLC, an independent organization tasked with managing the program, the organization has garnered support from 10 managed vision care plans that have agreed to utilize the program. The NAVCP continues to invite other plans and organizations requiring credentialing to partake in the new approach.
