Patient Account Rep

Throughout the revenue cycle, patient account reps review and update patient accounts by calculating deductibles and processing payments. Consistently communicating with patients and their third-party providers, patient account reps also resolve issues with patient accounts, determine if patients are able to pay their outstanding balances, and credit/debit their accounts as needed. 

Patient account reps must follow up with patients regarding outstanding balances and insurance providers regarding claim status updates. In the event that a patient cannot pay their balance, patient account reps may need to provide financial counseling or assist with payment planning.
