Evening, all nurses! My background in nursing is eclectic. I have spent the last 4 years in home care case management. I initially applied with Wellpoint six months ago for a Telephone Case Management position but didn't get past the resume/application process. Evidently they kept me on file because I got a phone call today.
I have an interview with the Precertification dept manager at Wellpoint next week in Indianapolis. I'm excited because of this is an area of nursing that I want to learn about and excel at. I also would like the M-F schedule. I'm also very nervous because I don't have any UR experience. This job will involve doing pre-cert paperwork, chart reviews, etc.
Anyone have any experience in this? I'm just nervous because I don't know anyone who has done this kind of nursing. I also don't know what to expect from this industry. Any insight is appreciated! Thanks!!

Hi, good luck.
I know quite a few nurses who do UR and CM at Wellpoint --they enjoy it; the schedule and benefits are really good.
You will have all major holidays off, plus the day after Thanskgiving off-each yr. You may get the opportunity to work from home after 6 months to a year. The 10 or so nurses I know work from home with meetings held via conference call....even some training has taken place online w/ teleconferencing.
Good luck, just remember it is corporate America----as a nurse it may take some getting used to as with anything new.
