Manager, Enterprise Data Management (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – January 17, 2018
Good work environment and leadership support Currently playing Manager in Enterprise Data Management team includes multiple different flavors related to Business Intelligence, Data Analytics, Architecture & reporting and program management. Implemented Data warehouse at Medica and worked closely with several state, federal agencies for several health care submissions.
Continuous turn-over in upper level management. Here today, gone tomorrow. With each new person who has joined the management team there has been a "new" and "improved" way of doing things placed into practice, without every learning or understanding the Policies and Procedures in place. With the constant turn-over, trust in management has been difficult to maintain.
High turn-over in upper level management. Poor staffing.
Team Lead (Former Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – January 2, 2018
Job was stressful but rewarding. Management challenges you but is also very supportive. The company suffered layoffs in 2017 due to unforeseen circumstances but they are making a nice recovery with their strategic planning. Insurance industry will always be vulnerable but Medica does it's best to ensure their employees are taken care of.

Medical Communicator (Former Employee) – Hasbrouck Heights, NJ – September 27, 2017
It was a simple job where they asked you to call different doctor's offices to invite them to educational programs. If they had time they would talk to you and if not they would either be professional about not being interested or would be very rude. Hardest part is dealing with the receptionist at times.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – St. Charles, MO – September 24, 2017
There is much to be desired with this company. While not everything nor everyone are "unbecoming", There is an unfortunate lack of organization and regard for staffs' concerns. While there is a system in the manner of the work flow, there is no program for proper training in place. Employee recognition consistently falls short leaving the staff feeling unappreciated and having a lowered moral in the workplace.
Flexible hours, plenty of hands-on-training, schedule for PT is based on employee availability
Significant amounts of micro-managing, improper training, scheduling issues
Health Plan Specialist II (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – September 6, 2017
I learned so much working here that I wouldn't take a day back. I have also had some great experiences working here. The most enjoyable part of the day is when we all come together and have team meetings or a company breakfast.
While I worked there, Medica was the insurance company of Allina Healthcare. And after being sued by the Minnesota Attorney General, the insurance company was split off on its own.
And of all the non-profit health insurance companies in Minnesota (Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Health Partners are the other two), Medica operates with the strongest for-profit metrics and culture of any of them. There is certainly nothing wrong with profit, but at what point does/should that profit as a non-profit organization be used to benefit their members?
Enjoyed working at Medica. Telecommute option was outstanding. Audit cases for prior authorization. fast paced. daily case load average was 40-50 cases. manager supported us closely and assisted with cases when high
Enjoyed the company, people and the job responsibilities
