Medical Office Assistants perform the daily tasks that keep doctors' offices, clinics, and hospitals functioning. They are customer service representatives above all; communicating with patients and insurance companies, collecting data and payments from patients. The MOA Assistant schedules different kinds of medical appointments: doctor’s appointments, out-patient and in-patient procedure appointments; welcomes the patient upon arrival to appointments and performs registration. The MOA Assistant is a specialist in setup of patient paperwork and in communication with patients via telephone, correspondence, and in person, so all other medical team members will be able to follow up with the patient account seamlessly.
MOA Assistants also support the office in duties such as ordering of medical and office supplies, coordinating staff work schedules, processing timecards, and completing hiring paperwork. Depending on the need and size of the medical facility, MOA Assistants either support in all these mentioned areas or specialize in one or two such as collections, payroll, account receivables/payable, insurance billing/coding, scheduling, or registration.
