How do you get a job as a RN working in a insurance company doing QA or physicals? I would like to get into this area of nursing. Thank you in advance.

I would just choose the insurance company I was interested in, go to their website and apply directly after reviewing the listings. As for the physicals, those are generally contracted out, I can give you a referral if you're interested. I don't know what part of the world you're in, PM me if interested.

Do these nurses work from home or do they have to go into an office somewhere? Do you know?

Most of those that do physicals work out of their home. And are paid per patient.

There are other types of jobs also (besides the ones already mentioned).

I do chart reviews and go from site to site.

Some people also do these online from home.

I have done some of these also.

There are some nurses who do case management for insurance companies.

Like workman's comp cases, etc.........there are office jobs and also field jobs.

My company is MedAssurant.

Another one is Corvel-----www.corvel.com. I had a friend who worked for them.

I work for a health insurance company and do clinical chart reviews to determine medical necessity. At the company I work for there are almost a thousand nurses that work across the country doing pre-certification, retrospective review and case management. Some work from home and others work in the office. It is great, no holidays or weekends and best of all nobody dies! The qualifications are usually at least two years of clinical but varied nursing experience is preferred. I have been working in the insurance industry for 15 years now.

I am a new nurse who has been working for about 3 months. I plan on getting at least a year of experience in the hospital, but I really want to move on to some kind of case management or basically any job a nurse does at an insurance company. Lately I've been trying to decide whether I should go back to school in the fall to get either an additional degree or my masters in some business/finance area to get into an office type job. My question is, with around a year of experience in the NICU, will I stand a chance at getting one of these jobs or will I need additional requirements due to my lack of experience in diverse settings?

I too am interested in performing assessments/physicals for life insurance or long term disability companies. I have done this in the past for extra money and loved it. Any companies you could share would be great!
