Have you ever thought about working from home processing claims? If not, you may want to give this field a try because you can find a lot of jobs posted by employers in the medical field, insurance, and elsewhere. Not only are these jobs in great demand but they are not too complex once you know how to process them.
Before I go into the details, I will briefly mention my own experience working for a company processing claims.
In my early 20’s, I worked as a Medical Claims Processor in a tall high-rise building for a well-known health insurance company. I had no previous experience in this field but I was hired in with a group of about 20 or so to process medical claims for the company. My job was to review codes and signatures from providers and physicians for patients requesting additional procedures or treatment.
Before I was allowed to join the team upstairs with my own cubicle, I had to go through extensive training. That lasted for a few weeks. We had to learn codes, medical terminology, etc. Once I finished this step, I would work from my desk reading over the claims from my computer to look for the provider’s signatures, codes, and other information to accurately process each claim which includes typing data. If something was missing or incorrect, the claim would be sent back to the provider and processed after corrections were made. Overall, my basic job duty is to approve or deny each claim.
I was eventually promoted as a Medical Claims Examiner III where I would make recommendations to help get those claims paid for doctors by insurance companies. I still reviewed and processed claims but they were mostly Hospice Claims. There was still ongoing training from time to time as policies, HIPAA laws, and procedures changed.
I shared my experience because some may overlook these type of jobs thinking they need previous experience or extensive education, but you don’t. You do need to be a person with average typing skills, who pays close attention to detail, and is skilled in analyzing data. Most people would qualify to do this kind of work…especially remotely.
