I worked in the Patient Financial Services and it was a cut throat environment. Constant changes. Poor management that yelled at staff if they became frustrated or if you asked too many questions. Everyone only thought about themselves. I would not recommend employment here.
Is working only 3-12hr shifts with 4 days off. Although your schedule is different every week you will have your schedule for at least 1-2 months out so you can plan things outside of work. This is a great starter job.
The job was only about meeting the goals, making your numbers, and producing things that could be measured. Doing a good job was not necessarily rewarded because to truly do Medical Billing efficiently, you must have the time to correct the claims appropriately instead of just re-billing. Wakemed didn't see the value in taking your time to do it right the first time on the front end. If you value doing the job right then don't work here.
Not the worst facility, but management could use some tweaks. The pay isn't bad, nor are the hours expected of us. I haven't worked here that long, but I would recommend this facility to anyone who wants a high volume, fast paced workplace.
Enjoyed working at the hospital in the emergency department for 12 years. Every day was exciting as you never knew what the situation was for the arriving patient. Registered patients immediately upon arriving to the Emergency Dept. Environment was very faced paced and details obtained were of the utmost importance. Enjoyed assisting patients and family members during their time of need and in some cases a crisis situation. Hardest part of the job was facing and assisting family during fatality situations.
Assisting patients/family members.
Considered essential personnel and had to report to work no matter the weather conditions.
You can learn a lot about third party payors. The follow up department can be very stressful along with management micro management style. The hardest part was learning the new software system they invested in at that time made the task more time consuming.
Patient Account Representative (Volt alkalmazott) – Raleigh, North Carolina – 2015, szeptember 14.
A typical day here would be to resolve every account you touch. I learn a great deal about third party payors. My co-workers were excellent. The hardest part of my job was dealing with Medicare and having teamleaders and manager watching every move I made when working accounts. I like my work but management made it unbearable. The most enjoyable part of this job was the support of my co-workers.
*a typical day at work = very busy *what you learned = it is not what you know, but who you know. *management = a revolving door *your co-workers = scared to lose their jobs *the hardest part of the job = 1% raises *the most enjoyable part of the job = no weekends
