Who we are: ALN Medical Management

At ALN, we were founded on the principle that when you treat your employees right, everybody wins. ALN was recently recognized as one of the 2015 National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by The National Association of Business Resources.

ALN is an established company where passionate people, working together, can do great things for our physician practice clients. We believe that US healthcare needs strong and healthy independent physician practices. ALN helps independent practices in all office-based clinical specialties stay independent and in control of their destiny.

 

What you'll be doing: Coding Specialist

In this dynamic expanding position, you will have the opportunity, as a Coding Specialist, to analyze coding edits, performing and review coding audits, researching complex coding questions, conduct coding and billing training programs for billing/coding specialists as well as physicians (our clients).  Strong verbal and written communication skills will be important in your role to create presentations, develop learning material, and provide feedback to internal and external customers regarding denial trends and opportunities, along with audit results.

 

Some typical responsibilities will include:

  • Provide coding guidance to billing team and physicians
  • Monitor coding work and trends, providing education where opportunities are identified.  Apply policies and procedures on documentation and coding consistent with state and federal regulations. 
  • Give input on and assist in design improved coding and coding related processes.
  • Perform and prepare special projects as assigned, including analysis and actions plans related to audit results
  • Provide annual updates to providers and staff as they relate to additions, deletions to CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes
  • Demonstrate extensive knowledge of clinical documentation to help ensure the use of proper diagnostic and procedure code assignment
  • Maintain knowledge of ICD9/10 and CPT classifications and coding of diagnoses and procedures.

 

What Is Critical:

Where our Vision outlines what we are trying to do, it is our culture that is what will get us there. At ALN, we have a set of shared beliefs about what is important. Yes, we have smart, talented, hard-working people at ALN. But more important, we have a group of people that are personally committed to a set of ideals that unite us.

  • Guts and Courage: Our clients are navigating turbulent times; consequently, much of the work we do for them involves charting new paths. We do not always follow well-worn paths. So, we are looking for people with the guts and courage to jump in and figure it out.
  • A Team Mindset: Lots of organizations list teamwork or something like it as a value, but for us, it goes to another level. Because we deliver a solution that integrates multiple parts into a single whole for our clients, we have to have people who connect with others, who share information, who communicate often, who value the whole more than their individual part.
  • Smarts and Learning: Healthcare is changing fast and the situation of every one of our clients is unique. Everyone has to bring their brain to their work; no one can mindlessly 'follow the process.' Figuring it out for our clients requires that everyone at ALN be thinking all the time about how to do it better.
  • Work-Life Balance: Our people bring a high level of energy and commitment to their work, but work is only part of life. We give people as much flexibility as possible to balance their work with whatever is happening in the rest of their life at the time. To make this work, it requires people who fully embrace the implications of this idea.
