Medical Claims Approval was demanding
Medical Claims Approver (Former Employee), Spokane, WAFebruary 28, 2014
Typical day: Mountain of claims, and lots of phone calls to answer..
I learned that I do like dealing with medical claims. I wanted to try the medical billing part of claims.
Hardest part of the job: Answering lots of phone calls and trying to keep up claims production to get and maintain a raise. Claims not processed and release by the claims approver – more... are not counted by the claims approver towards claims count.
Co-workers: some of the people that I worked with at Guardian were very enjoyable and helpful. . – less

In my last 21 years at the Guardian, I have learned many aspects of how each functional area operates. It has truly been fulfilling.
Unfortunately, the previous 5 years have been quite taxing. However, I have grown to be more of an effective communicator on many levels.
I will carry this in a positive way, as I venture towards my next career endeavor.
