A typical day at work would include making sure that the daily hospital bills went out in a timely manner. Also included calling the various Insurance carriers and third party payors for the status on their claims and payment information and going on line as well to obtain status. Worked daily a variety of different work queues Handled daily correspondence and faxes received.
I learned a lot at this job on how the Hospitals do their billing. Over all they had great management and the co-workers were great to work with and there was a lot of team work in the department.
Probably the hardest part of the job was trying to get the Insurance Carries to pay their claims within 45 business days of their contract from the date that they received the claim this could be very challenging especially when it was high dollar claim.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when I appealed a denied claim and it actually got a approved and paid by the Insurance carrier I felt I was helping the Hospital get their money back!
