I am now currently working in the dental billing department where I have communication with co workers and insurance companies.
I played a major roll in creating a more efficient way of handling the Federal Employee Program insurance process. The new process eliminated hours on the phone with the insurance company and eliminated the delay in billing patients for the insurance checks they received.
I also played a major roll in creating a claims follow up report. The report was rolled out within a month and provided a tool that allowed timely follow up on claims. All of the Patient Financial Services departments are now taking advantage of this report.
