We are part of Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the largest not-for-profit health care systems in the country.  Our mission is to deliver high quality care that meets our patients' medical needs while providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families.

Job Summary:
Performs a variety of general administrative support duties associated with the patient intake process for the Franciscan Medical Group (FMG) outpatient clinics in accordance with established internal guidelines and procedures.  Incumbents typically interact with patients directly at the front desk and/or on the phone to perform follow-up activities. 
Work includes:  1) ensuring patient is checked in/out for care, 2) collecting and entering demographic and financial data in the patient’s electronic medical record; 3) gathering/validating insurance information using routine methods and obtaining authorization for services, 4) scheduling patient appointments, and 5) collecting co-pays, co-insurance and prior balances. 
Work requires knowledge of insurance authorization/billing requirements and privacy/confidentiality practices, as well as knowledge of medical terminology and the patient intake process.  An incumbent follows proper channels of communication in handling daily and routine problems and recognizing issues that need referral to management.  Strong customer service skills are necessary.

The work requires knowledge of the policies, procedures and equipment applicable to the work unit at appointment.
