I was a Patient Services Specialist for a Physicians Office in Florida and I live up of state. This is a very good way to be able to work from home. Everything was set up as if I was working in the office and it worked out great. I would love to do this again. I set appointments and registered the patients and obtained all of their Insurance information, called and verified their insurance, completed a worksheet and entered the worksheet to the patient’s chart so everyone concerned would have access to it.
