Company Overview SamaCare helps to eliminate the administrative barriers that limit patient access to life-changing therapies. Insurance-related administrative hassles for prescription drugs result in worse outcomes for patients, delayed therapy, and over $100B of administrative waste for the US healthcare system. Medical providers are forced to manage these workflows on stone-age technology (fax, calls, and snail mail).SamaCare has built a software platform to help practices streamline those administrative workflows and a two-sided business model that has scaled to hit medical offices serving nearly 2 million patients (and growing rapidly). As a Venture Capital (VC)-funded company, we’re building a team to help us scale, so that every patient gets access to the right treatment at the right time.

Role Overview This role will focus on managing electronic paperwork sent to and from insurance companies, as well as curating insurance company documents for our internal database. This role will also involve speaking with insurance companies via telephone to get information regarding submitted requests.

We pride ourselves on being friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable about the healthcare industry.
