Accounts Receivable/Payroll Assistant/Billing (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 13, 2017
Work is what you make it to be. You have a responsiblity to meet to come in to work at it and do the best with what you know in order to have a result.
My daily routine, check all claims to be submitted to insurance, review claims to be sure that all information is completed for claims submission.Work with front desk staff and Doctors for correct information on claims.
Review denied claims and appeal when need to.
Works closely with clinic director to review billing issues to have corrected. culture is versatile. The hardest part of the job is when there is no correct resolution for the process working on.
The most enjoyable part of the job, is when at the end of the day, I have completed the task that needed to be done for that day.

The Ethel and Samuel J. LeFrak School at the Lighthouse International
Teacher  (Former Employee) –  111 East 59th street NY, 10022 July 5, 2013
The Ethel and Samuel J. LeFrak School is a wonderful place to work at, however there is a few workers ( Teacher's Aides ) there that like to bully and give dirty looks to those who are not part of their little group. I just don't understand why they still working there. In the other hand the majority of people who works there are hard working dedicated workers.
Pros
Good schedule, ( besides the bullies) a warm environment, multicultural
Cons
No salary increases, Health Benefits are expensive

Top management bankrupted the organization and left Queens consumers high and dry
Social Work Intern (Former Employee) –  Kew Gardens, QueensDecember 19, 2012
There was an office in Queens but because of top management spending excessive amounts of money on building and decorating their new building in Manhattan, the Queens offce was closed and consumers left high and dry!!! Bad management, planning and shameful irresponsible handling of the organization's money caused many dedicated people to be let go and the visually impaired lost a much needed resource in Queens.
Pros
working with consumers
Cons
outdated data system
