I believe that better care begins at home.

Compassionate care, uncompromising service and clinical excellence - that's what our patients have come to expect from our clinicians. Kindred at Home, a division of Kindred Healthcare Inc., is the nation's leading provider of comprehensive home health, hospice, and non-medical home care services.

Kindred at Home, and its affiliates, delivers compassionate, high-quality care to patients and clients in their homes or places of residence, including non-medical personal assistance, skilled nursing and rehabilitation and hospice and palliative care. Our caregivers focus on each unique patient to deliver the appropriate care and emotional support to our patients and their families.

As an Intake Coordinator, you will:

  • Receive/respond to incoming calls from referral sources or potential patients, exchange information to identify patient needs, and determine the Company's ability to meet them.

  • Record the outcome of calls either manually or in an automated manner, make follow-up calls as necessary, and identify alternative community service resources when solutions are not available.

  • Perform initial telephone screening to determine patients' appropriateness for home care services with referral sources. Advise branch staff of patient acceptance and provide all relevant information to ensure patients' smooth transition to home care.

  • Contact referral sources to advise of referral status, and provide to the clinical team who will deliver the services requested.

  • Identify potential payer sources, verify benefits with payer sources (as required by department organizational structure), negotiate rates and obtain initial authorizations and frequency of visits from case managers. Establish primary payers and document conversations with payer sources.

  • Access national or regional account information, including the names of accounts and terms of the contracts as appropriate and communicate these conversations to branch and intake department staff as needed. Work with Intake team, branch staff, and patients to identify potential solutions as problems are identified with payer sources.

  • Monitor and track referral sources' satisfaction levels. Communicate customer service issues to up-line Intake and branch staff as appropriate.
