Current Opportunities

Medical Case Manager

While in Nursing School, you were probably never exposed to the career options that exist in the Occupational Health field and Insurance industry. One of these options is the case management and care of individuals who have been injured on the job. You might be curious about how these nurse roles are different from the traditional clinical role you might be currently in.   Working in the occupational health field and insurance industry offer some attractive advantages including:  regular daytime business schedules, no necessity to bid for shifts, and no need to work nights, weekends, and holidays. Another appeal is the less demanding physicality of these jobs with less standing and less wear and tear on the body.  Caseloads also tend to be more manageable as Insurance companies generally have state of the art systems that make it easier to document patient care and manage caseloads. Pinnacol Assurance is a good example of the types of careers available to nurses in the insurance industry. Our Medical Case Managers consult with claims representatives regarding the medical aspects of claims while interacting telephonically with injured workers and  providers to ensure recovery, successful return to work, and returning the injured worker to their pre-injury condition.  Our Medical Case Managers participate in consultation with physicians, occupational and physical therapists, external case managers, specialists, and legal staff.  While these positions do not provide direct patient care, nurses involved in this type of work are critical in helping move cases along and ensuring positive outcomes.  It is interesting to note that most of our nurses in these positions come directly from the clinical environment and represent all types of specialties. The work environment is team-based and nurses interact on a daily basis with other team members including claims representatives, underwriters, auditors, legal counsel and administrative support personnel.  Nurses drawn to these types of positions tend to bring a strong desire to learn, adaptability to change, the ability to educate those around them, while creating a balance of empathy and the promotion of well-being for the injured worker.  Training is done by our Nurse Specialists and appeals to every type of learner in that there are visual, hands-on, one-on-one, classroom and self-study components. The work is varied and challenging so learning continues well after the formal training is over.  While most nurses have never been directly exposed to the availability of these types of career options, many find them to be well worth exploring at some point in their careers. A current CO nursing  license required for these positions and candidates must be willing to attain and maintain case manager certification (CCM) within 3 years of hire. Five years’ experience in nursing strongly preferred.
