Average place to work at.
Pros: cafeteria on site, paid holidays, cashing in vacation/sick days, some overtime available
Cons: no stable manager position held
Typical day at work would be pulling charts for the days procedures, ie, day surgery, radiology, while registering patients that came in for lab work and other clinical procedures, When a day surgery patient came in, I would pre-register them and collect any copays. When the flow would slow down, I would check my schedule and check which patients had – more... which insurances, and verified insurances and also obtained prior authorizations if needed. All of this is done, while answering the phone too. We had a number of managers come in and out of our department so it was kind of hard to adjust to. The hardest part of my job was getting through to insurance companies. Some days, I wouldn't be able to reach them, or get an authorization, and the patient would show up for their procedure. The most enjoyable part of my job would be the different duties we were tained in and got to do. We were also trained in the ER also. – less
