Job Description

One of the nation’s largest and most respected hospital companies, Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) has built an impressive record of achievement and performance. Steadily growing from a startup to an esteemed Fortune 500 corporation, UHS today has annual revenue nearing $10 billion. In 2017, UHS was recognized as one of the World’s Most Admired Companies by Fortune; ranked #276 on the Fortune 500, and listed #275 in Forbes inaugural ranking of America’s Top 500 Public Companies.

Our operating philosophy is as effective today as it was 40 years ago: Build or acquire high quality hospitals in rapidly growing markets, invest in the people and equipment needed to allow each facility to thrive, and become the leading healthcare provider in each community we serve.

Headquartered in King of Prussia, PA, UHS has more than 81,000 employees and through its subsidiaries operates more than 320 acute care hospitals, behavioral health facilities and ambulatory centers in the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the United Kingdom.

Foundations Recovery Network a divison of UHS is the premier provider of integrated treatment for co-occurring addiction and mental health concerns, offering residential and outpatient services nationwide. At each facility, we focus on patient-centered care and an individualized approach, upholding a high standard of innovative treatment and compassionate attention to each patient’s needs. We are committed to providing and promoting evidence-based treatment for individuals with co-occurring disorders through clinical services, education, and research. Our purpose is to create lifetime relationships for long-term recovery. Everything we do is designed to support recovery in a comprehensive way, addressing the needs of the whole person—physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We provide the foundation; you build the life.

Foundations Recovery Network is currently seeking a Patient Account Representative to take charge of the collection of delinquent patient accounts for a designated territory. We don’t “off-shore” our collections because we have one of the best collections teams in the Nashville area! We are looking for someone for this role who loves the challenge of collecting on accounts that were previously considered a lost cause. We need someone who fully understands the requirements of third party health insurance policies and how to handle their individual claims denials process. We need someone who can confidently and compassionately interact with our patients and their families in this difficult time, as they work to break free from addiction.
