Primary Source Verification
What is it?
Primary source verification (PSV) is the process by which a health plan, hospital or dental office checks an individual provider’s reported credentials and qualifications. This crucial step not only protects the provider but also the hospital, health plan, and—more importantly—the patient.
Primary source verification of healthcare and dental providers is required for confirming that an individual possesses a valid license, certification, or registration to practice medicine. Primary sources include medical/dental school diplomas; specialty training or residency certificates; licenses to practice; registration with a medical or dental council; or any other credential required by law, regulation, or hospital policy.
