Med Group Home Health Care (Current Employee) – Mequon, WI – July 26, 2016
I am a very skillful and hard worker. I am at great multitasking and I complete my assignments on time and correctly the first time. I am a great person with a great personality, I bring life to the work place.
A typical day consists of all front desk duties. Most importantly, taking care of all of our walk in patients: Set ups and pickups (drop off or exchange). Exchanging oxygen tanks: loading and unloading patient vehicles, logging lot numbers from filled oxygen tanks. Intake: insurance verifications, authorizations, keying patient demographics, printing CMNs, and completing charts. Setting up: wheelchairs/ transport chairs/ walkers/ rollators/ knee walkers/ crutches/ PAP supplies/ personal home equipment supplies.
working one on one with patients and their families
Great for single person with no other obligations because you can make your own schedule. Not for those with family or obiligations outside work.
Delivery/Sales Sub-Representative (Current Employee) – East Lansing, MI – March 28, 2016
A typical day at work is spent mostly on the roads. The company does provide a company car, which is very nice. It isn't anything brand new, but they do use vehicles that look nice and they keep up on the maintenance. If something is wrong, they will get it fixed for you in a very timely manner. I have learned that having a company car, company phone and the ability to make my own schedule is not "all it's cracked up to be". I am on-call 24/7 and because a car and phone are both provided, along with a gas card, I have no excuse to not be available whenever work beckons. Everyone is usually pretty stressed out in this job. There is a big disconnect between the clinical/field staff and the staff at the home office. I find this to be true of most companies: The staff with their hands in the dirt and the staff behind the computer screen typically have very different opinions of priority and do not understand each other very well. The hardest part of the job is really just getting everything done before you collapse. The day changes so much that there are times you just never can tell when you'll be home. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the patients. They are generally very kind and extremely happy to see me. They know I am there to help make them feel better, so they are typically very receptive to me.
We answer phone and assist customers in reordering their supplies, and distribute them to them as needed. Call Dr's offices to get correct diagnosis and verified what is needed and for how long. Take co-payments and record them for insurance purposes. Calling insurance companies to verify the insurance as well as see if they have met there deductible. All my co-workers are great and love working with them. The hardest part of the job is when you can't supply them with what they need due to insurance not covering it or they just can't afford it.
Don't have to punch out for lunch when stay on premises
Independent Consultant (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – July 14, 2014
I would like a productive workplace. I would like management to be involved with the supervisors and managers. In regards to coworkers, I would like them to be positive while being thankful to even have a job. There is really no hard part of a job. It depends on how you organize yourself to complete a task. The enjoyable part of the job is completing a task in a timely manner.
Advocate Home Health (Former Employee) – Bridgeview, IL – March 28, 2014
Love the company. I learned a lot and I grew within the company. I was given the opportunity to learn a lot about Durable Medical Equipment. A typical day at work was busy. Plenty of patients to assist in person and on the phone.
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Nevada, CA, AZ,Western US – January 15, 2014

Great personal satisfaction helping clients to abtain a better quality of life
Hart Rehab Specialist (Former Employee) – Grand Blanc, Michigan – June 20, 2012
Working Durable Medical Equipment was an easy paced job without much training. After learning how to repair equipment, document paperwork, sell products, deal with hospitals, and clean and maintain products, the job became quite repetitive and boring.
The location in which I worked was nice, although it became too boring for my personal taste and it felt like I wasn't making much of a difference in my line of work. There was a limited pay ceiling.
The pros to this job would have been a somewhat freedom of a typical desk job while dictating your own routes when things got done. The pay was reasonable but little to no benefits, nothing to support a family on (20kish) and at times, there was a lot of customer service nonsense.
The mom & pop environment was nice; my supervisor was reasonable and to me, a wise human being. I'd recommend this job for anyone who likes to deal with Geriatrics, light physical labor, driving, and dealing with the elements.
