worker (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – September 1, 2015
Co-workers are allowed to continue poor behaviors, rule breaking, etc. and nothing is addressed. Even if addressed continuing behaviors are repeatedly ignored. Schedules are a free for all and seniority takes precedence so the less seniority you have, there is no choosing like the more senior workers on days on/off, etc. This leaves any co-worker with a selfish agenda and more seniority the opportunity to take advantage of less senior people and schedule a three day weekend for themselves every weekend for the entire summer (which is also completely ignored.) Criticism is common place along with impatience from nurses, and other staff. Cheerfulness or helpfulness gets you nowhere. Not an easy place to work.
Physician Biller (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – August 2, 2015
First thing in the morning, I would verify each patients insurance information in my alpha split. The alphabet was divided by patient last name. Next, I would check my claims for errors and correct them before they were sent to payers. Then I would work my day files which consisted of accounts that were billed 1 month ago or accounts that I had worked but needed more attention. I would make my phone calls to insurance companies as to why we haven't received payment yet and then do any re-bills that are needed. Checking explanation of benefits for my accounts, noting in the account what the balance is or why it was rejected and then doing any re-bills.
What I really like was my co-workers, we really worked as a team. The hardest part of my job was talking to patients after a procedure was performed, that the procedure wasn't covered by their insurance. This problem was resolved when the company created a department that performed the pre-surgical approval.

The team I work with is amazing. I look forward to going to work. I enjoy every day I work here. The people that I work with try their hardest to make the environment as positive as possible. Even when it is a sad day we keep each other up.

Student Intern (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – January 15, 2015
I was a student intern at Bay Area Medical Center during the summer of 2014. All of the employees that I came into contact with displayed professionalism and courtesy. Also, everyone was very helpful and I was able to gain experience and learn quite a bit.
Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – July 10, 2014
typical work day is 8-4:30p...mon-fri and no weekends unless asked to work inventory. The manager was a very strick but great teacher. Had the opportunity to attend training for new computer system. Sometime was stressful working with nothing but women and the boss being male would get caught in the middle. The most enjoyable thing is the end results at the end of the week, having plenty of supplies for the different depts and for the patients.
Transcription clerk (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – July 2, 2014
Very busy every day- time went by very quickly! Very nice co-workers- worked as a team. Learned a lot about the medical field- medical terms, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that what I did made a difference. The job could be very stressful at times- dealing with angry doctors but was still enjoyable.
Every day was different with some very busy and stressful days.
Transcriptionist, Tumor Reporter, MLT (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – January 10, 2013
While I worked in different departments over the years, some things were similar including a busy day full of diverse activities that needed completing in a timely way. I learned something new every day and I asked questions every day. I think it's important to ask questions to clarify and ensure accuracy. My coworkers were cordial and professional. My managers all had an open door policy and were receptive to ideas, frustrations, and help. The hardest part of all my jobs were interruptions in my "plan" for the day and what the day actually turned out to be. That was also the most enjoyable part of the job.
opportunities for advancement and diversity of work.
some jobs were not full time and had off shift hours.
Can't say (Current Employee) – Marinette, WI – May 11, 2012
Understaffed, overworked and looked down upon if you use any of your PTO. Job description promises one thing - the reality of the job is another thing. Promised training was never delivered. Management could not be bothered. I will be looking for alternate employment in the very near future.
