Twenty (20) Years Medical Billing/Collections Experience
medical biller/collector (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 13, 2014
I would start my by auditing previous days' charges, entered them into Medware(practice mgmt software). Then, I would batch, correct errors, ex: add addtl patient documents, ID #, payor id/or wrong insurance. After correcting errors, eletronically transmitting claims through Emdeon and retrieve confirmation reports.
After lunch, I would spend my time on working denials, sending appeals and of course claim status, either payor web site or phone call.
I had a really good manager, she had a open door policy, that if anyone had issues,(either with patient collections or office disagreements sh was always supportitive.
The hardest part of my job was locating patient charts.
The most enjoyable was I did the whole process from entering charges, posting payments, transmit claims and following up delinquent accounts.
The variety of daily tasks
150 mile commute everyday
