Become a part of our caring community and help us put health first

The Medical Director relies on fundamentals of CMS Medicare Guidance on following and reviewing skilled nursing facility requests. The Medical Director provides medical interpretation and determinations whether services provided by other healthcare professionals are in agreement with national guidelines, CMS requirements, Humana policies, clinical standards, and (in some cases) contracts. One weekend per month is required, with days off during the week.

The Medical Director provides medical interpretation and decisions about the appropriateness of services provided by other healthcare professionals in compliance with review policies, procedures, and performance standards. All work occurs with a context of regulatory compliance, and work is assisted by diverse resources which may include national clinical guidelines, CMS policies and determinations, clinical reference materials, internal teaching conferences, and other sources of expertise. Medical Directors will learn Medicare and Medicare Advantage requirements, and will understand how to operationalize this knowledge in their daily work. After completion of mentored training, daily work is performed with minimal direction. The Medical Director works in a structured environment with expectations for consistency in thinking, authorship, meeting departmental expectations, and compliance timelines.
