If it’s to be said the team at Gables Medical Billing is full of Superstars, but what qualities are spotlighted in a Superstar Medical Biller? We’ve put together a list of some of the attributes that make our team as stellar as they are:
A sparkling talent of communication is first. As someone who is going to interact with a wide variety of people, at different levels of a company, a medical biller needs to be an effective communicator. Speaking to providers, insurers and even some patients, interaction is a huge part of the day and you need to have the gift for it.
A problem-solver. This person needs to be great at figuring out even the most confusing brain teasers. They must navigate the space between submitting the claim and receiving payment like they were born with all of the answers.
Attention to detail. Someone with attention to detail, because there are thousands of codes that can be used in claim submission, but only a medical biller will know exactly how to send a clean claim the first time.
Integrity. This work entails that you deal with sensitive information and diagnoses. You must treat each patient file and submission with the utmost grace and care, and the discretion required by the HIPAA laws.
Technical savvy. Medical billers are gifted computer program brains. They know their medical billing systems inside and out and how to understand, code and combine the medical documentation that the doctor submits referent to the patient and work with the insurer to ensure that compensation is received.
Independent worker. As a medical biller all of your days are different and dealing with different insurance companies and different coverages for patients is also varied and different. This person is someone who can plan out their day and work on claims on their own with little to no supervision, and receiving payments on time.
Courteous and humble. This is a huge quality needed by a medical biller. A medical biller acts as the liaison, or bridge, from the doctor to the insurer. Ensuring payment and that all of the services are coded properly and covered by the insurer, and payment is received.
