Irving Texas Corprate Office - Medicare - Collections, Validation, Billing
Medicare Biller, Validator and Collector (Current Employee) – Irving, Tx – May 7, 2014
Christus Health corporate office was a good place to work but has significantly gotten worse over the past year. I can only speak to the Medicare department though.
I was relocated from another Christus facility in 2013 and am only reviewing the Corporate Office in Irving, Texas.
The building itself is very, very nice.
Security team is great.
Pay - Average range is 15 to 17 dollars per hour.
Team Lead Pay - A team lead is not a "real position" at Christus. You are payed one extra dollar per hour for hours worked. You do not get the additional dollar per hour for PTO or during overtime.
Some of the medicare management does not treat white employees fairly.
Managers in the Medicare department have no experience
within Medicare and do not have any basic understanding of how Medicare works Vs. commercial insurance. This causes huge communication issues.
Management is almost never available to answer questions. E-mails go unanswered or are ignored.
You have no paid holidays. You must use use your PTO in order to be off for holidays.
Medical and Dental is not the best but not the worst.
HIPPA regulations are not followed. Documents lay out, you can see everyone's screens and hard copy claims are left out.
Most of the lower level people are great to work with.
Chistus Health is a Catholic based non profit. They have a church and prayer rooms within the office building. You are not allowed to use them during work hours though.
Nice building, co-workers are great
