We are proud of our inclusive people culture that supports our associates to perform at their best.  USAP is an equal opportunity employer.  Candidates with physician services or related health care experience is a plus. We offer a competitive benefits package. 

 

 

 

We are actively recruiting an A/R Billing Coordinator to be based at our Adminstrative office located in Greenwood Village, CO. The A/R Billing Coordinator position will be responsible for assisting in billing administrative duties associated with the patient and health insurance billing process as well as performing collection activities associated with assigned health insurance groups. 

 

Over 75 practice management experts and operational support staff serve our growing and well-respected anesthesia practice which consists of over 200 anesthesiologists, 45 CRNA’s and 14 CAA’s. Our clinical staff members provide care at 10 hospitals and over 15 surgery centers located throughout the Denver metro area.

 

U.S. Anesthesia Partners - Colorado is a physician-led practice.Our team of experienced professionals have served this area for more than four decades through two strong anesthesia groups that have now come together. From this new foundation, we will continue to meet the needs of our community well into the future. We are now part of a national network of leading anesthesia providers and have the ability to truly transform anesthesia services across the country. We have access to new resources and best practices that will strengthen our ability to meet the demands of our community and provide leadership and committee opportunities locally for our providers to get engaged and be a part of a growing and leading team.

 

In addition, our integration as USAP-Colorado has allowed us to further build out our service delivery model so that as the facilities we serve require more complex and coordinated anesthesia services, we can support them. This will maintain the important relationships in place with surgeons and facilities to ensure clinical consistency and a continued high level of patient care.

 

Our location in the metro area provides an option to work in the suburbs and locate in outlying bedroom communities. Many of our staff who prefer an urban lifestyle have found housing in Denver’s renewal areas where beautiful older homes, town homes, renovated lofts and re-development communities provide easy access to both downtown and the facilities we serve.

 

Colorado’s four seasons and incredible opportunities for outdoor activities consistently keep many of the metro Denver cities near the top of the “Best Places to Live” ratings.
