Job Description for Medical Billing Clerk
Medical billing clerks are responsible for all aspects of medical billing and payments. This primarily involves working with patients to collect payment on outstanding medical bills. They answer patient questions regarding repayment methods and billing disputes, as well as work with insurance companies, Medicare, and Medicaid to collect payment on medical bills and post received funds to hospital accounts. Medical billing clerks analyze older billing records and make recommendations for payment recovery; they may refer bills for collection after exhausting all attempts to contact patients. They manage billing records (ensuring the accuracy of all information) and work with aged trial balance (ATB) reports to manage claims.
