Job Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Medical Claims Analyst?

Medical Claims Analyst in Fort Worth:
"Underpaid."
Pros: Working with itemized bills.
Cons: The amount of work versus deadlines.

Medical Claims Analyst in Honolulu:
"It never pays to be the good guy."
Don't give in to the pressure to sell out peoples' lives and well-beings for career advancement. This isn't car or tupperware sales. These are real peoples' lives, and your boss is trying to profit from their sickness and misfortune. Just remember to do what is right, which is what is good and what propels life. Stray from that which is wrong, which is bad and what destroys life.
