Indiana - Patient Admissions Representative (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – November 29, 2017
Fast paced and stressful at times. I learned a lot about medications. The workplace culture was not nice. Colleagues would scream at each other. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you were assisting the patient with treatment that was going to benefit their health situation.
Lunch brought in. Good benefits.
Benefit of 1 hour lunch, but seldom felt it could be taken.
Clinical Service Liaison (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 9, 2017
This is by far the worst company I’ve ever worked for. To be considered in the healthcare industry this company has a complete lack of interest for the patients they serve. Their primary focus is the bottom dollar and helpful their pockets are at the end of the day.

Pharmacy Technician/ Clinical Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 15, 2017
The Richmond Virginia branch of Coram is small but productive. We all work well together and take very good care of our patients and each other. With that being said, we have been set up as a "hub and spoke model" with another branch being our hub and this situation has really caused some issues. There is a negative element to that model which is bringing down morale as well as our customer satisfaction numbers.
Great team with excellent Pharmacists leading it.
small office, lack of positive communication from "Hub"
INSURANCE VERIFICATION SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – July 21, 2017
Very busy with patient care all the time. I learned a lot regarding insurance, authorization, codes for billing and services. Management was ok but not always fair. I always got along with everyone. The hardest part of the job was leaving. The most enjoyable part was learning all I learned.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Colonie, NY – July 13, 2017
The Company provides get service to their patients and cares about them all. But is under staffed at times leaving others to work longer hours without compensation staff is expected to Flex their time so they don't get overtime for the extra hours worked. The job itself is fun and challenging however there is no room for advancement.
Being a CSS at Coram is a fast pace multi tasking position. The most enjoyable part is helping our patients feel better. Typical day is dispensing medication and calling patients regarding their medication deliveries and checking on how they are feeling.

RN, Primary Case Manager (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – January 2, 2017
I initially liked working here, however I found the out going and in coming managers were absolutely difficult to work with not to mention the one staff nurse they had is simply crazy. I was hired to work PRN or part time and the company tries to work you as you're full time. Apply only if you want short term work and do not plan to stay long.
Clinical Support Specialist (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 31, 2016
working here is great, they care about the patient's well being and health. Which other companies only care about the money. The benefits are good, 401k with a great match also able to purchase company stock.
I had only been with the company for a couple of weeks before they started training me on how to do my bosses job when he was away on vacation. The training was very intense and I felt way underpaid for the work that they were expecting from me. New job responsibilities were added to my work load weekly.
Pharmacy Technician, Warehouse Technician (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 17, 2016
Working for Coram Specialty Infusion was a rewarding and a positive learning experience. I found the staff and management were always ready to chip in and help. When a job needed to get done everyone worked together as a team regardless of your position.
The hardest part of my job was learning the drug compounds. But the most enjoyable was the team work.
Senior Customer Service/Pharmacy Tech (Current Employee) – Amherst, NY – April 19, 2016
I deal with patients every day. On an average from 10-20 patients have meds that are refilled and I have to make sure that the meds are on time, are agreeing with them and they have all the supplies needed to be infused. I enter the meds, and the pharmacist checks them to make sure its correct. I talk to patients by phone and pull all charts and then file them when I'm done. My work day starts at 9 and goes till 530.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Jackson, TN – April 1, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of a lot of phone calls and being yelled at by some clients. I learned how to manage to different accounts. Management was not always the best. Some to majority of my co-workers were pleasant to work with. The hardest part of the job was learning the system. The most enjoyable was being able to help other with their medical needs.
Productive workplace, rewarding feeling to help patients with treatment
CSS (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 1, 2016
CORAM is a great company to work for. Coram is a diverse workplace and fast paced. There is this rewarding feeling you get when you help patients with treatment no matter what position one is in. From the receptionist to the Branch Manager, most of the time everyone participates in daily duties to make sure the patients get the exceptional service they deserve. The worst part of the job is Management. Sometimes they spend all day in meetings while the employees bend over backwards to make sure the patients get the service they deserve. In fact, the company may run a bit more smoothly if management actually included themselves with everyday assignments instead of spending so much time in management meetings. When Management is out on the floor they do not provide a helping hand, instead they micro manage.
Benefits package, team environment
No work/life balance, micro management, discretion not used between management and employees
