Job Description for Medical Biller

Medical billers are responsible for the billing and collection of medical debts. They work in an administrative capacity to ensure that patients are billed swiftly, accurately and with as much clarity as possible. Every time a patient receives medical attention, the appropriate payments are tallied up by the biller and issued in the appropriate format (by mail, online, or a combination of both). It's very important for medical billers to be able to understand the varying complexities of medical billing; this extends to different types of insurance plans, government assisted programs (Medicaid, Medicare, etc.), and how other discounts are applied to different groups of people. A strong understanding in this field will ensure that the billing is accurate, and easily fixed in the event of an error.

Medical Biller Reviews

What is it like working as a Medical Biller?
Medical Biller in Muncie:
"Work Flexibility."
Pros: I love processing claims, working with numbers, the knowledge, working with the insurance companies, how to fix claims and getting the most reimbursement possible.
Cons: Being pulled away from it to cover other jobs.
Medical Biller in Phoenix:
Pros: What I like about this employer is that we have flexible work and off days.
Cons: I have some input on reasons or things that would make me want to stay employed here with Emerald AR one of the main reasons I do not see myself here a year from now is "Emerald does not offer systemic salary increases. This does not mean that Emerald does not [ever] issue increases to salary, however performance is usually accounted for in the monthly bonus or promotion" what that tells me is I can be here for the next 10 years and not expect a change in my income unless it is my monthly bonus which does not rely only on myself but on each and every one of my team members I know that is the number one reason why my past co-workers have left is due to no increase in their salary even upon request. Even if we had individual goals that would be a plus. At the moment I know of 4 other employers actively searching for a higher paying position or the least a job with systemic salary increase. If Employers that are bilingual would get paid more would be a second reason that would make me stay.
