    Super tight deadlines....not unfair just very demanding, but hey that's what they pay you for

    Remote Coder meetings should be allowed using VOIP, or some kind of virtual program vs. having to meet in the office

    I worked at Altegra Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Available coaches for on the job questions, hours, fast growth out of entry level position, off bus line, have nice sized cafeteria and outside area for breaks

    Cons

    Inconsistent work load, rude management, inconsistent QA reviews, commute is horrible, spend a lot of time correcting mistakes, specialty training classes after fax mail could use updating.

    Advice to Management

    Need more consistency with QAing all employees in all departments, better training sessions for specialty positions not fax mail and hire people that care about doing their job and doing it well.

    I worked at Altegra Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When the work is there is a good place to get your feet wet as a coder. The salary is low while you are slow but once you get your speed up it is ok.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low unless you are very fast and if you are fast enough to make good pay you won't make your 95% accuracy. The worst thing is you will be working your tail off and then suddenly there will be no work. I am a current remote coder, at least as far as being able to log on to the systems, but I haven't worked in over 2 months with no explanation from management and no communication about expected work in the future. In fact the so-called advocate I was assigned won't even respond to me. It is not fair that you are laid off and they don't even tell you. They just don't give you any work. A few of the coders with the highest QA scores are getting a little bit of work but most of us get none. Very poor communication and very poor consistency. They won't even tell you if you need to look for another job. Poor ongoing training.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better about the future outlook of work availability. Offer more training to help people get their QA scores up. Get more contracts to keep the work steady. We know there is plenty of coding work available in healthcare and not enough coders to do it so there is no reason you shouldn't have enough work for us and there is never an excuse for a coder to not be working more than they want to. Treating your highly skilled, highly educated coders this way is shameful.

    I worked at Altegra Health full-time

    Pros

    Although a larger company, it had a small "mom-n-pop" feel. Management was accommodating of time away and appointments. Co-workers were diverse and brought a lot of different perspectives to the table.

    Cons

    It was hard to determine overall contribution as a single employee. Much work often became dead in the review process, or left to the side. There needed a better link between Sales and Marketing, as they both were operated in silos.

    Advice to Management

    I see now the company has been acquired by Emdeon, so the management is definitely not the same. But I would suggest to continue seeking WHAT is best and recommended instead of WHO is saying it.
