Patient Care Assistant- Currently I, Bend, OR - February 9, 2017
A typical day for me is answering patient questions over the phone. Currently I work with a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I run prior authorizations for clinical treatment as well as psychiatric medications. I use an EMR system to access records, and chart vital information regarding the patients, for the NP. I communicate with Therapists, other physicians as well of medical offices. I am able to verify insurances, and co-pays. I understand the laws and regulations surrounding HIPPA. I obtain medical records from other outside facilities.
