I’ve been away for a while, but I wanted to share a humiliating experience to see if anyone else has had something similar happen. For the past 3.5 years I’ve been working as a CM in an outpatient setting. Got my CCM in September so I wanted to start looking at new career possibilities. I’ve had 3 interviews this past week for a position in case management/utilization review.
Normally, when I interview, I get a lot of fluff questions and situational questions. Those I am use to. However, I interviewed for an insurance company yesterday and holy hell I thought I was on a game of jeopardy.
Here is an example: what does MRI stand for and what is it? What does CT stand for? What’s the difference? What is a carotid endarterectomy and who performs it? What is a CABG? What is hepatic encephalopathy? What the eff?! I was so flustered and totally unprepared that I literally could not think of what an MRI stands for! I said medical resonance imaging! 🤦♀️ I couldn’t think of what encephalopathy was!
So I guess my question is, is this typical for an insurance company to ask these types of questions? I kind of get why they did, but damn!
Anyways, thanks for reading my rant!
