Are you looking for a job in the healthcare industry that doesn’t involve direct patient care? Check out the insurance billing specialist jobs listed on ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs today! By processing claims and requesting reimbursement from both insurance companies and patients, insurance billing specialists ensure healthcare facilities get paid and patients receive accurate bills.
Although they do not involve direct patient care, insurance billing specialist positions are patient facing jobs. They may need to contact patients regarding outstanding account balances, be available to answer patients’ billing questions and set up payment plans. Additionally, they will speak frequently with insurance companies in order to properly process claims.
To qualify for insurance billing specialist jobs, candidates usually need an associate’s degree and certification from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). Organizational skills are paramount, as insurance billing specialists manage patient files and process a lot of sensitive paperwork and electronic data. Because they may be dealing with distraught patients, excellent communication skills are vital to provide the level of customer service needed to succeed in these positions.
Insurance billing specialist positions can be found in a variety of healthcare facilities, including hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, insurance companies and more. No matter what type of facility you prefer, ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs can help you take the next step in your career.
