While employed at Crouse Hospital, I worked in the Business Office in the Authorization/Verification sub-division. This was my first position with a hospital, and it provided a great insight as to how the in-patient billing field differs from the out-patient provider billing that I have worked with for the majority of my experience.
I worked very closely with the management, as well as with all of my co-workers. I was elected as the President of the Business Office Action Committee, and I took great pleasure in holding the seat.
On a typical day, I would make approximately 100 to 125 calls to patients to verify their demographics, the area that I concentrated on was out-patient diagnostics.
Although this position was not directly related to my medical billing experience, I enjoyed working with the patients through telecommunication. Work in this area comes naturally to me.
My daughter fell ill in 2014, and the illness resulted in her having a section of her brain removed. She is doing well and recovering as expected, however, it has put a hold on my availability for work due to the fact that she is out of school for the time being. I would very much like to find a position that would allow me to work from home.
