As a Reimbursement and Prior Authorization Specialist located in
Spring, Texas you play an important role in the overall success of
the company. Working with our billing tool provider, and partnering
with colleagues in Finance and Client Services, you will drive
payment by contacting insurance companies to secure
preauthorization required for patients to receive our services. You
will ensure information obtained is complete and accurate, follow
up on requests, and apply acquired knowledge of Medicare, Medicaid,
and other Third-Party Payer requirements and online
eligibility/preauthorization systems. You will facilitate optimized
billing processes and operations that are aligned with Guardant
Health's mission and values.
You will help develop and maintain a database of payer
authorization requirements, and manage documentation for
appropriate payer communication, correspondence, and insurance
claim research. You're responsible for tracking, reporting and
addressing complex outstanding claims. You will work to
troubleshoot EOBs, appeal non-covered and inappropriately
adjudicated claims, follow-up on claims, and drive positive
coverage determinations through external appeals.
You are interested in being on the ground floor of a dynamic,
fast-paced organization. You are organized, have strong attention
to detail, and are a self-starter who can work with minimal
supervision. Tech-savvy and analytical, you enjoy unpacking and
resolving complex issues. Customer service is in your DNA, and you
are known for your ability to communicate effectively through even
the most tangled scenarios.
Your background includes three years of work experience in a
healthcare environment focused on healthcare reimbursement,
including knowledge of health plan regulations and processes. Your
previous experience in similar roles enables you to hit the ground
running and contribute insights and solutions to your team.
You should have moderate Excel skills, like the ability to sort,
filter and perform simple calculations. You have experience working
with a broad range of payers and have experience coordinating with
insurance providers, physicians, and patients to obtain prior
authorizations. You have also appealed to state level agencies or
external level review with IRO/IRBs.
Familiarity with laboratory billing, Xifin, EDI enrollment,
merchant solutions, payer portals and national as well as regional
payers throughout the country are a plus.
