Medical office specialists typically work at the front desk of an office completing administrative tasks. They need to be highly organized and strong communicators as they work closely with patients and handle confidential information.
Typical administrative duties include greeting patients and answering their questions, scheduling appointments, updating patient files, submitting insurance forms and processing billing. Depending on the facility, medical office specialists may have other duties as well. In addition to communicating well and maintaining patient confidentiality, medical office specialist jobs require employees who are familiar with current healthcare laws and regulations, medical terminology and medical coding.
Although there are no specific education requirements, obtaining a diploma, certificate or associate’s degree can help prepare candidates for medical office specialist employment. This will help them learn about medical terminology, billing and coding, thereby giving them a competitive edge in job hunts.
Medical office specialist jobs can be found in physician’s offices, hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices, clinics and more. In general, wherever there is a medical facility, there is a need for one or more medical office specialists.
