New Law Simplifies Credentialing for Health Care Providers

Help has arrived for health care providers who are fed up with the burdens and delays of credentialing with multiple health carriers in the state of Washington.

Historically, health care providers have been required to provide different applications and information to each of the dozen or more carriers, and filling out and submitting these applications is a time-consuming process.

The Class of 2018: Theo Shaw

Theo ShawThree years ago, the world was a very different place. We had a different president, the U.K. was still a part of the EU, no one believed the Chicago Cubs could win the World Series again, and we were still spinning theories about the podcast Serial. At the same time, a new class of law students was settling into classes.

From 1L to 3L to now graduates, Washington’s three law schools recently unleashed a new wave of lawyers ready to put their training into practice. Many graduates are preparing for the bar and a career in law; others have already attended school and passed the bar, but went back to focus on new areas of the law. Though they come from a multitude of backgrounds, what they have in common is optimism and passion to take their newly learned skills into the community.

Below is a transcript of the speech given by Theo Shaw, a Gates Public Service Law scholar and the J.D. student speaker at the 2018 University of Washington School of Law Commencement Ceremony. Shaw was one of five student speakers who spoke at the graduation ceremonies of Washington’s three law schools, which we will publish here over the next few weeks. Read more »
