Case Management- insurance companies

  1. I'm looking into work from home jobs with insurance companies. I have a BSN and three years of clinical experience (telemetry and emergency). I do not have CM or UM experience, though, and I'm curious for those who have entered this field with just clinical experience, what the training and orientation period is like. Is this a really difficult job to learn? I learn very quick, but I'm definitely worried/nervous about the support with a WAH job where I'm assuming to be expected to jump right in pretty quickly. Thanks!

    Hi Momma1RN, I just accepted a job offer with an insurance company a few days ago for WAH CM position. I too do not have a lot of experience in CM. I only have med surg and SANE experience so this is a whole new experience for me. I was told that I would have a preceptor for 3wks and then be completely independent after 90days so this gave me a piece of mind to know I'm not figuring things out on my own.

    I know you were looking for someone who is already working the position but I hope this some what helped that its possible to transition into this role with little to no experience.

    Out of curiosity, what is the pay range quoted?

    My training was 3 months. I am a pretty smart chick, but I thought it was difficult to learn.
    I do utilization review. It is quite complicated, and the business rules are constantly changing.
    You would be working from home, but you would have coworkers and management to provide support. They are only a phone call or an e-mail away. Everyone supports each other, when questions come up.
