These are temporary roles, with the possibility for temp-to-hire transition. These positions are long term, with full time hours. Training schedule (approx 4 weeks) may be different than the work schedule which will be 10:30am to 7pm, Monday through Friday.  We're seeking candidates with good phone skills, ability to prioritize, keep customers happy, and have a base level of computer skills to navigate multiple screens at the same time (to update address and provider information, etc.).

You must be comfortable and adept at calmly, and professionally discussing caller payment issues over the phone. This may include answering caller questions, clarifying outstanding issues, researching and resolving concerns and more.

In addition to making calls, you'll update our customer's computer system with payment plan information, updated address, phone, email and other related information. You may also be in touch with insurance carriers or others to obtain the maximum payment information available. You will also be asked to prepare information for reports, analyze information, make recommendations, and help reconcile records. Critical Thinking skills are a must. You will be asked to assist with Customer Service calls as well (for overflow needs).
