Insurance Verifier in Lansdowne:
"It can be stressful and challenging at times."
Pros: You know the day to day scheduling and routine

Insurance Verifier in Port Huron:
"Love my job hate the company."
Pros: I love the difference I am able to make in the lives of the people I work with. To be able to help a patient who is uninsured and/or financially struggling; obtain insurance or to alleviate a looming medical financial burden is extremely rewarding.
Cons: There is little transparency in anything the company does. There is a lot of nepotism going on, and continues to serve as a huge injustice and the placing of people in roles they are unqualified for and not effectively able to serve in. The company has no regard for the loyalty or tenor of its employees, I have personally watched management walk employees out the door for advocating for a specificity in patient care, instead of just keeping their head down and doing only as they were instructed. The family atmosphere and camaraderie that used to exist at our facility prior to our acquisition to Prime is now non-existent.
