Work from Home

Posted

Has 4 years experience.

Looking to get into a work from home nursing job such as nurse review for insurance company or telephone triage....something like that. Anyone do this for a respectable company and have any advice. I have heard some people working for WellPoint but am not familiar with them. Any suggestions with Humana or UHC companies?

UHC is an excellent company to work for and is growing rapidly. . They just decided to get into the Obamacare market. Almost all the nurses work from home

You're familiar with Wellpoint, you just don't knowit. Wellpoint is the largest managed health care, for-profit company in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield IS Wellpoint.

I am currently working for Wellpoint. They are running the new Virginia Medicare/Medicaid dual demo (this is something that is coming about because of Obamacare), that it what I am doing. Loving it so far. Trained on site for 2 weeks, now I'm home. If you want an employee referral, PM me. :)

Run as far away as you can from Humana WAH!!!:no:

Just be aware if you work from home and are on salary you often end up working wayyyy over 40 hrs/wk.

I know at Humana, even though they called it "salaried", they did not compensate you for the hours you worked outside of the 40/wk. Like an appointment here and there, without using your PTO....I didn't like that, it was worse than punching a clock, with no OT.

But, you are salary and you would not receive OT. Most desk positions with big box companies are salary. I understand, for I am salary too and so unfair not to be compensated for working over.

Oh absolutely. I haven't punched a clock in over 20 yrs, however I have been granted some type of comp time, for the extra time I have put in. Its not abused of course, but it is a little something, being for being salaried since we don't get OT, is all I am saying. When I worked with Humana, all the hrs of OT I put in, I still had to take PTO when I had an apt or whatever. It was "encouraged" to just take 1/2 day, when an appt was scheduled, if greater than 2 hrs. crazy crazy crazy
