Working from Home

  1. I am very interested in working from home as a case manager or an equivalent position for an insurance company. I currently live in Florida, my husband has always lived here and the summers are getting too hot for him. Our goal is to travel north for the summers. I would love to be able to bring my work with me during the summer months. So my question is for nurses who currently work at home...Would traveling and continuing to work be accepted in those positions or do companies make that impossible? I've thought of just getting a prn job when we go north for several months, but I would love to keep the same job if able. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. I do not want to pursue this route if it can not be done. Thanks again for any information!!

    You should try a company called Lifeplans, they are based in Mass. but hire nurses all over the country to do in-home assessments for insurance companies. You could just let them know where you will be and they can send you local assignments. It is prn but they pay anywhere from $45 to $95 per assessment. You have the option of accepting or rejecting any assessment.

    I used to do CM for an insurance company and they required that we live in the area in case we ran into computer problems at home. However, I only came into the office once per month for our staff meetings. I'm not sure if they would have been ok with me living in another state part of the year. I think it would be worth applying for a position and asking about the feasibility of this during your interview. We did have one person who lived in another state while I was there, but she did database support and was not a CM.

    I work from home as a CM, but the company expects me to be physically present in the metropolitan area where I live during working hours of 8am to 5pm.

    If a surprise office-based meeting or unexpected legislative complaint arose, and I cannot physically respond because I am out of town/state, I would probably be in some seriously hot water.
