I walked into TrailBlazer Health Enterprises in October of 2008 starting as a customer service representative (level 1.) By July of 2010, I was applying for a highly desired position of a provider relations research specialist. I was awarded the new job title and worked alongside people who had been at the company for fifteen plus years. My competitive nature enabled me to excel at this location. I received respect from my peers as well as from the physicians I had to speak with on a daily basis. This job allowed me to see claims from the back end. One of my jobs was to handle the problem ones and explain to the provider what they were doing wrong. Why weren't they getting paid? Today I work for a home health agency. I started as a billing coordinator. Within less than a year I convinced the owner to bring billing in house. I have been solely responsible for billing home health claims, checking status, ensuring and posting payments for all 150 plus of our patients since we brought on the new software. My extensive knowledge of Medicare has allowed me to be successful in the position. I have since learned how to handle private insurance companies as well. I rarely miss my own personal quota I have set for myself. I compete weekly against my billing week prior to try and bill out more. The insurance companies do not care if you get payment. They make it almost impossible to bill the patient. No matter how hard you work as a provider, the insurance companies will put up road blocks so as to not shell out more money. They need to make money just like everyone else. I want to help you collect on the money that you have rightfully earned. I have done this for my company that I currently work for. I know that given the opportunity to work for you that I can do the same.
