Ophthalmology & Retina Medical Billing Specialist

  • Anywhere

Encoda LLC is a technology-enabled services company that has spent the last 30 years developing patented revenue cycle management tools that enhance the billing cycle. This technology is at the heart of our services and what separates us from all other RCM companies. The industry has gone past the point where a smart, experienced employee can make all the difference. In today’s world of complex reimbursement, you must have both the right people and the right technology to maximize revenue and timely payments. Encoda completed a private equity recapitalization with Hughes & Company, positioning us to accelerate the development of our rules-based workflow and analytics software and expanding its use to other areas of the healthcare reimbursement cycle that continue to plague physician groups.

WHO YOU ARE

As a Medical Biller, you are part of an experienced billing team helping streamline and automate RCM workflow for our clients, while enhancing the billing cycle and providing detailed transparency and visibility into the Revenue Cycle Management process. You will perform billing services for our clients which will significantly improve their rejection and denial management processes, reduce days in A/R, increase medical reimbursement, and receive a level of visibility and transparency into their billing cycle that other solutions on the market do not provide.
