I just returned from a week of training in Las Vegas and I am happy to report all went well; I’ve found the perfect match with a GREAT company. If you are a registered nurse with utilization review experience, I’ve got the best dream job you can imagine! You MUST use my name (Stephanie Jewett, RN, MBA) as the person that referred you; this company is hiring in all 50 states through next year. Training is a must, but the company pays your flight and your room in a lovely casino hotel with free shuttle to the office. The official name of the company is HealthDataInsights (HDI).
To explain a little bit more about what they do, they are a RAC provider with Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other commercial payors. Recovery auditing is an up and coming field of nursing that will continue to grow for years to come. Better yet, this is a telecommute position; you work with an intelligent and wonderful staff and you have a mentor that helps you succeed! 9 paid holidays plus PTO; holidays start right away, 401K and health benefits start after 4 months. The pay starts at $50,000 – $55,000 (salaried position). To my knowledge, they are only hiring full time employees.
The training is marvelous, and yes quite tiring, but well worth the trip to Vegas for learning AND having some fun. Here is what is covered in the training:
Welcome and Introduction
Citrix User Guide
Remote User Requirements
Mere 4 and Mere 3
Quality Management Program
Computer Information – General
Timesheet – Deltek
HCM – Clinical
There were several states present at this particular training session – Pennsylvania, Iowa (my home state), Nebraska, Florida, Georgia, California, Las Vegas, Missouri, North Carolina, etc. They are all registered nurses – a great bunch of people to work with and everyone is in the same boat. I met several really great people – there were 13 in the class; however, I believe they are going to up the attendance to 20 people starting next month.
I am just waiting for my equipment to arrive today, as I start this career officially tomorrow, but you are an employee the minute you walk in for training. Once again, if you have medical record review experience, think about joining this company before it is too late. If you have further questions, please leave a comment in the comment section of my blog. Be certain to use my name, Stephanie Jewett, as the person that referred you. Although there are locations in Florida and California, all training is done at the headquarters in Las Vegas. HDI is Medicare’s exclusive Recovery Audit Contractor in Region D (17 states & 3 U.S. territories). They have served as the National (all 50 states covered) Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) contractor for CMS since 2006. HDI is the industry leader in healthcare claims integrity: fraud, waste, abuse, errors and improper payment identification and recoupment solutions. Finally, HealthDataInsights reviews over $300 billion in paid claims annually.
