A typical day for a Peoples Health Member Services Representative begins with Representatives taking to their work stations and organizing them and setting up their resources to maximize their success in handling calls.  That includes reviewing emails, the intranet, the department's dashboard, and team performance from the previous day.  After ensuring preparedness, Representatives log onto the phone system and make themselves available to assist callers.


Some days are busier than others and require you to hit the ground running and handle a lot calls while remaining engaged, empathetic, and helpful to the caller. Often times callers are dealing with health and / or financial issues that add a sense of urgency to their requests, and you have to maintain a balance between advocating for members, and business processes that make the company successful. At all times, the customer is at the center of what you do. On slower days, you follow up on outstanding action items that you routed to other departments, and conduct follow - up calls with members to close out their contact. You're always learning something new and expanding your knowledge of the industry and the population of members we serve. It can be a very rewarding experience.
