I worked there for almost 3 years until finding a job out of my home with a different career path. Considering going back! Loved working from home and having an every other weekend job so I could have 2 days every other week for doctors appointments or taking care of business.
Great benefits, work from home options, good schedule
Strict daily schedule with very structured work day, no room for emergency situations
I enjoyed my tenure with the company, but eventually it got to the point where my job was getting redundant and I was not being appreciated enough.
Clinical Decision Support Representative (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 15, 2014
I was with Care Core for almost five years. Only made small raises each year for the great performance I gained. This company was like my second family however, I didn't feel like I was moving forward. I felt like I was stuck in reverse.
I learned a lot from the company though.If it wasn't for this company, I would have not gained the knowledge that I have now. I am thankful for what I have learned.
My Coworkers were great. Like I stated before, they were like my "family", but unfortunately towards the end things were getting very stressful which in turn was affecting the ability to perform my job. I feel like it was repetitive and the employees were not being recognized for what they were doing to better the company.
pay was decent
work environment was rather hostile. under appreciated.
Fast pace environment with great benefts and fun staff
Eligibility Specialist/ Intake (Current Employee) – Bluffton SC and Savannah Ga – July 17, 2013
A typical day as an eligibility specialist involves researching various cases to ensure patients have active health coverage and to ensure the patient's procedures will be covered. I have learned the policies and procedures of numerous health plans offered in the USA. I have an excellent manager who is a strong motivator and my co- workers and I work as a team to resolve any issues with the member's health plans. The hardest part of the job is not knowing when a certain policy is going to change. However, that aspect of the job is enjoyable because there is something new to learn each day!
Data Intake Coordinator (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – May 2, 2013
It was a good place to work. My supervisor was a people person, he was fair to everyone. I learn a lot about the medical field hands on. I brought a lot away with me when I left the business. It made me more efficent in my field of work.
i got a $1.24 raise the first year i was ther.
i had to drive more than 40 mile one way everyday.
I thoroughly enjoy my job as a clinical reviewer with Care Core. The management has been great. Its very hard to get that "home" feeling when working in an office in your home, but Care Core did everything they could to help me not feel alone.
I was audited on a monthly basis. I was told at hire clinical employees got audited "on a quarterly basis". Well, this was NOT the case. I was audited on a monthly basis and almost on a monthly basis they told me I was at risk of a job loss due to a few low scores on my audits. I did over 100 calls a day! and a few mistakes on an audit constitutes firing someone? I worked for this outfit for over a year and almost on a monthly basis they told me I might lose my job due to a few "low audit scores". I was always in a state of anxiety that one day the "hammer would drop" and I would be without a job.
I found a new job in a better working environment and quit. I liked working at home but I could not take their "psychological warfare" environment any longer.
This behavior was NOT what I expected when I took this job. I was disgusted by the lack of knowledge of the "supervisors" in management and often wondered how they would "fare" if they too were audited.

Data Entry (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – April 10, 2014
This was the absolute worst job I ever had. Management was really rude and inconsiderate. My co-workers were really nice and professional. The hardest part of my job was my supervisor she scrutinize everything I did to the point I felt like I was being harassed. I learned how to work in a really tough environment which I'm very thankful for.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Hardeeville, SC – September 30, 2012
I was working as a customer service phone operator. Medical staff called to get the patients precertified for radiolgy appointments. I worked closely with nurses and doctors that taught me how to read medical charts, corrospondence letters etc. It was a fun place to work but busy. the high volume phone lines were detailed and had to placed into the system with accuracy.
Data Intake Coordinator (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – November 16, 2011
The company operates as if we are robots. They are more concerned with the calls being answered than the well being of their employees. The do not take into consideration that all emergencies are not medically related and that everytime you are "sick" you can not necessarily afford (because of the awful insurance) to go to the doctor.
Intake Coordinator/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 25, 2012
assisting doctors with pre certifications on health exams and major testing. I learned medical terminology and great customer services skills. My co workers were excellent. Everyone worked together to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was providing bad news to the customers. Everything else was a plus
