I am an insurance biller/patient accounting representative for a hospital. I will have been there a year on the 21st of this month.
My favorite part of my job is some of the people I work with. A couple of us really do have a great time together and they make it worth being there. I like that it's a steady 8:30am-5pm, Monday-Friday job and that it has great benefits, and that it's something that I am GOOD at. I can exercise my computer, phone, and social skills.
My LEAST favorite part of my job is the other people I work with that have the "higher than thou" attitude. Some act like that just because I'm the girl who answers the phones, I'm merely a secretary, which just ISN'T the case and they ALL should know this. My boss, enough said. Apart from that, it's the rude people that chew me up one side and down the other because of something their INSURANCE company did, not us. I also dislike that since billing is the LAST department one deals with in a hospital experience, we get cussed out for ANYTHING that happened during said experience. Whether it be registration, the nurse, the doctor, or the stupid guy with a frown walking down the hall, WE get to hear about it like it was our fault such a thing happened. Not only do we get to HEAR about it, we get to apologize excessively for other peoples actions as well.
Wow, the cons outweigh the pros there, eh? Another job? Ah, yes, college is in my near future.
