Clover is reinventing health insurance by working to keep people healthier.

We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. Healthcare is a universal concern, and we need people from all backgrounds and swaths of life to help build the future of healthcare. Clover's Value Based Care team is responsible for the development and implementation of programs to support the growth and long term success in multiple VBC models, including but not limited to ACO REACH, MSSP and Medicare Advantage.

We are hiring for a Senior Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Operations Associate who will support the ACO value-based care operations including Network Management, Provider Engagement, Program Management and Business Analysis. In this role you will rely on your expertise in value-based care, physician reimbursement models, provider contracts, EHRs, medical billing and coding, claims processing, provider communications and beneficiary alignment, to help service our network of ACO providers.

As an ACO Operations Senior Associate, you will:

  • Provide operational support to the ACO Team including responding to provider inquiries and requests related to data sharing, voluntary alignment, reimbursement terms, payments, contract collection, provider administration manuals, required CMS provider written notifications/communications and provider compliance training.
  • Maintain and complete various daily activities pertaining to internal administration of provider operations, in general (i.e. alignment tracking, payment tracking, incentive tracking, contract maintenance, provider communications, etc.)
  • Manage ad hoc Operations process improvement projects and implement new operational capabilities.
  • Educate providers on how to interact with Clover Health and support that interaction where needed.
  • Support the end-to-end contract ingestion pipeline, ensuring any/all legal documents are appropriately completed and submitted, appropriate internal stakeholders are notified, and key artifacts are stored correctly.
  • Support insight development/data report building at the request of the ACO leadership team.
  • Support maintenance of ad-hoc analyses/reporting requests.

You will love this job if:

  • You are service oriented — you feel fulfilled in helping and supporting others to achieve common goals and resolve issues.
  • You are a team player. You enjoy partnering with others, and want to work collaboratively to find new solutions.
  • You are a strong communicator. You have strong verbal and written communication skills that foster trust, knowledge sharing, and progress.
  • You are detail-oriented. You pay attention to the small things, while understanding how they fit into the bigger picture.
  • You have a bias to action and love to move quickly from ideas to execution.
  • You use analytical input to solve complex problems.
  • You are curious. You like to do research when you don't know an answer. You ask the hard questions and you don't sweep problems under the rug.

You should get in touch if:

  • You have a 3+ years Medicare healthcare experience, ideally in value-based care.
  • You have 2+ years experience supporting provider engagement.
  • You have a great understanding of healthcare topics, such as claims processing, EHRs, medical billing and coding and physician reimbursement models.
  • You have a working understanding of healthcare topics, pertaining to providers, such as, physician reimbursement models, data sharing in provider partnerships, and PCP engagement.
  • You have a basic understanding of provider contract options, healthcare economics and competitors practices with the ability to grasp both clinical and business concepts.
  • You have strong project management or administrative skills and can multi-task while being highly organized and thorough.
  • You are able to create buy-in and drive action across a wide set of collaborative team members.
  • You have a proven ability in using data to inform decision-making as part of a broader, strategic set of goals.
  • You are able to regularly identify opportunities to implement efficient process/operational improvements.
  • You have a working knowledge of Excel and are able to produce basic reports when requested.
