180 Medical Employee Spotlight: Product Specialist

by Jessica March 19 2015 13:32

haley product specialist career employee spotlight 180 medical

Describe an average day in the life of a Product Specialist.
As a Product Specialist, my goal is to match our customers with the right catheter that will meet their needs and give them the best comfort and result during the cathing process. Everyone is an individual with different needs, so catheters are not a one-size-fits-all type of product. For instance, we may talk to someone who wants to be able to self-cath in a public restroom without feeling like everyone knows what she/he is doing in the stall. Or we may help a mother find the right product for her newborn son and help her on how best to catheterize him. The relationships we make with our customers ultimately help guide them to the specific product that will fulfill a need for them. A typical day for me is spent speaking to our customers about their lives, products, and how their insurance works to cover the catheters.

What do you love most about your job position?
The best part about my job is helping our customers. There is nothing more rewarding than making someone’s quality of life better by helping serve their needs in different products. It is incredible to know that I am instrumental to helping people become more confident and independent with their supplies. I love it most when a customer tells me that they were able to leave their house for the first time in weeks or that they’ve been infection free for a significant amount of time because of the products we have sent!

What is unique about 180 Medical that makes it a neat place to work?
180 Medical is all about 'framily.'  We've got a special group of people here. Co-workers become friends that genuinely care about your work life and even outside of work. 180 Medical is all about team efforts to reach goals and giving support and service. We are encouraged to spend as much time as needed on the phone with our customers. We also get to spend time with customers and our community at various charity events like the annual MS Walk, wheelchair basketball fund-raisers, the annual Corporate Challenge, and more. I'd say that, in many cases, we are able to go far beyond what other companies would do to help with their needs.

Anything you would say to someone thinking about applying for a job here?
Be ready to grow! I started at 180 Medical a little over 3 years ago and have transitioned into 3 different roles. I have learned so much from insurance processes and procedures to how to teach someone to use a new product and so much more along the way. This is a place of opportunity!

What's one of your favorite stories of how you helped or interacted with a customer?

When I first started working here at 180 Medical, I had a customer who had been cathing the majority of her life with a glass catheter, which had left her bed-ridden with infections for years! I made it my mission to find something we could do to help her. I was able to pair this sweet woman with an advanced catheter that was more in line with her specific needs and taught her every step of the way on how to use it. I’ll never forget when she called later on and told me that, after a few weeks of using the new catheters, she was able to visit a school function for her grandchildren. Tears of joy all around on this call! I’ll never forget her and so many others that have experienced similar situations.

Tell us a bit about yourself outside of work.
I enjoy working out, cooking, and watching remodeling shows! My husband, dogs, and I are an active bunch. We love strolling through the neighborhood and talking about the future. Cooking while watching remodeling shows is ideal; however I enjoy both equally on their own as well.

A big thank you to Haley and to each one of our hard-working, compassionate Product Specialists. You do so much for others, and the work you put in every day is so important to 180 Medical.

180 Medical Employee Spotlight: Territory Sales Representative

180 Medical is a national leader in the intermittent catheter industry, and we also provide ostomy and other related medical supplies. We recruit employees who are positive, hard-working individuals who want to help others and enjoy what they do at their job.

employee spotlight 180 medical seth


Seth, what do you do as a Sales Manager?

My day is full of appointments and cold calls with established and potential accounts. Every day is something different and new for me, even though I've been with 180 for 5 years now.  I am currently covering territory in the northeast. 

What do you love most about your job?

I love being out and about on a daily basis.  I've been doing it my entire career, and I don't know how I would function behind a desk if I had to.  Also, there is never a dull moment in the field. There are always new challenges to overcome. It keeps things interesting!  
 
What’s unique about 180 Medical that makes it such a great place to work?
180 is still a family even though we are growing like crazy.  I worked for a major drug company prior to 180 Medical, and there, you are just a number -- not a name. It is very rare to have this kind of dynamic in our industry. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the company.  

Anything you’d say to someone thinking about applying for a job here?
This is the place you want to be if you want to prove yourself and excel. There is upward mobility, and the structure allows a top performer to stand out and be recognized.

What's one of your favorite stories of how you helped or interacted with a customer or facility?
There is a guy on one of our national brochures who is a patient of one of my old facilities. I remember the lengths the inside team and I went to in order to help him out, and in the end, it was definitely appreciated. He even uploaded his own YouTube video praising 180 Medical, and when I saw that, I knew this was why I am doing my job -- to help others!

Tell us just a little bit about yourself.
I love to play golf, although I rarely get time to play anymore with a 1-1/2 year old and another baby on the way (due date is Valentine's Day 2015). I've been married for 6 years. I like to cook, and I regularly tear my house apart to start new projects constantly -- it's what I do to de-stress. 

What's a favorite quote that keeps you inspired?
"Seek first to understand, then be understood." -- Stephen Covey. It's a great quote and a good line to live by, especially when dealing with many different types of people on a daily basis.  


We'd like to give a big thank you to Seth and to all of our amazing Territory Sales Representatives and Managers in the field! Your work is so important to 180 Medical!

180 Medical Employee Spotlight: Billing Specialist

by Jessica October 9 2014 14:10
180 Medical is a national leader in the intermittent catheter industry, and we also provide ostomy and other related supplies. We recruit employees who are positive, hard-working individuals who want to enjoy going to work. We offer a competitive benefits package, extensive training, and many fun extras and perks. 180 Medical was also named one of the Best Places to Work in Oklahoma for the 5th year in 2014.

This month, we're happy to feature Chelsea from the Billing Department.

billing specialist employee spotlight 180 medical

What are some of your main job duties as a Billing Specialist at 180 Medical? 

Billing Specialists are responsible for a wide range of duties involving customer's insurance companies. We file claims daily as well as appeal claims we have had problems being paid on. Once we are paid by the insurance company, we are responsible for making sure that every payment is posted to each customer's account to maintain accuracy on customer's monthly statements.

I personally specialize in resolutions in the Billing Department, which involves working on and appealing older claims.

What do you love most about 180 Medical?

180 Medical is one of the few companies I know that genuinely cares both about their customers and their employees. Even though we don't get to interact with our customers in the billing department as much as some of the other positions in the company, I love knowing that we are helping to make a positive difference in our customers' lives. The environment that we work in is happy and positive. It's a job that you wake up in the morning excited to come to work. 

Anything you’d say to someone thinking about applying for a job at 180 Medical?

If you are looking for a change in careers and you want to work somewhere that you can make a difference in others' lives, I encourage you to apply. Not only is it a very rewarding job, we tend to have some fun as well! I have been here for two years, and I continue to learn new things, and I have loved every day of it! 

What's one of your favorite stories of how you helped one of our customers?

I was on the phone with one of our customers recently, and we were having issues with her insurance processing the claims correctly which had caused her to receive a large bill. When she called, she was initially very concerned about this. We worked on the issue, and then later in our conversation, when we were able to get the insurance problem straightened out, she broke down in tears and expressed to me how thankful she is for our company. She said she is so grateful to know that we are such an honest company that's always willing to help her with all questions she has regarding her supplies or insurance problems. When we finished our conversation, all of her questions were answered, and it seemed like she was no longer worried about the issue. It's a nice feeling to help others like that, and it makes me feel proud to work at a company that our customers look at so highly.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am originally from Sioux Falls, SD. I lived there until I came down to Oklahoma City to attend college at Heartland Baptist Bible College for three years. I met my husband while I was here in college, and that is how I have ended up staying here in Oklahoma. I love camping, hiking, going to the lake and traveling! I am also a huge Thunder fan. However, I do feel like a bit of an outsider in Oklahoma, because I am not much of a college football fan. Thunder Up!

Thank you to Chelsea and all of the employees that make up our Billing Department, each of whom play such an important part in our daily operations at 180 Medical.

180 medical employee spotlight oklahoma city careers

What do you do as a Verifications Specialist?
Our group verifies that each customer's Medicare and Medicaid insurances are active each month before the order is shipped. For those customers receiving home health, we will work with their home health agency to make sure they continue to receive their supplies in a timely manner.  

What do you love most about 180 Medical?

I love feeling like we can make a difference in people's lives. And there are so many fun perks of working here, like the casual atmosphere – not many companies let you wear jeans and t-shirts to work! It's great to wear my orange and black on Friday to support my Oklahoma State Cowboys or the blue for OKC Thunder. When we make our weekly company goals, we are rewarded with fun treats. My favorites are bundt cake, pretzels, or ice cream! We also have events like bowling, Corporate Challenge, Jim Thorpe run, Red River Rivalry 180 medical fun work environment thunderChili Cook-off, and we decorate the offices when our home NBA team, the OKC Thunder, is in the playoffs.

Anything you'd say to someone thinking about applying for a job here?
There is so much to like about this company. Love the feeling you get when you can help those who are in a difficult situation and try to make their day a little easier. The company is great on rewarding individuals that work hard. If you like to work hard and help others, this may be the right fit for you!

What's one of your favorite stories of how you helped a customer?
Don’t really have one specific story, but I can say it is always makes me feel good when you feel that you have made someone’s day a little better. Sometimes when we call customers, they're already dealing with various health issues and frustrations, but it feels so good to know I can help, in being a part of 180 Medical. When people thank us through their tears, it's been a fulfilling day.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
The most exciting thing to happen to me lately is that I became a grandma! Love my little Braxton who is just turning 2. In the past, I did a lot of crafts and sewing as a hobby, but mostly now I just enjoy it when I get to babysit my grandson and take it easy. I'm a big Oklahoma State (OSU) fan -- love my Pokes! I hope to cross off an item on my "Bucket List" in the next few years and take my grandson, daughter, and son-in-law to the most magical place: Disney World!

What is your favorite inspiring quote or thought?
“Choose Joy – joy is not in things; it is in us.” I listen to the Bobby Bones radio show every morning, and one of the DJ’s mom is battling cancer. To honor her mom in a positive way, the radio station had a whole week dedicated to the purpose of spreading joy and happiness. In other words, to try to do good things for others and not let hardship or difficult times cause you to lose hope. I was really inspired by that thought to continue to choose joy, no matter what.


A big thank you goes out to Linda and the rest of the Verifications Specialists, all of whom play an important part in our daily operations at 180 Medical by verifying insurances and helping customers who are transitioning to and from Home Health services.
