We are looking to add a staff member to handle the billing side for our 2 surgeon anterior segment practice. The new staff member will verify the coding created by the providers using the EMR and handle claims submission including follow-up. Currently, a different staff member handles posting and statements, this could become part of the job responsibilities of the new employee to encompass the entire revenue cycle.
This is a small practice, everyone has to be able to do more than one job. While this is primarily a back-office position, registering a patient or making an appointment would be part of the job responsibilities.
Two years verifiable experience on the billing/coding side of an ophthalmology practice are the basic requirement for this position. Ability to work in a windows domain environment and work with the usual office software products like Word, Excel etc. is also expected. Experience with electronic claims submission and ERA posting required. A coding credential (e.g. OCS) is preferred but not required.
We try to create a family friendly environment, down the line it may be feasible for some of the actual billing/coding work to be done from a home office.
