New Office Staff Employees During the last couple of months, there have been a number of staff changes in the administrative offices of Interim of Oakland County. 1.

Paula has 20 years of experience in healthcare sales. The last 17 years Paula has worked in hospice for Heartland, Odyssey and Great Lakes Caring as a patient liaison. New Staff Roles Summer has been a time for re-evaluation of the current roles for our CSR team. We have been making changes to support the growth and administrative improvements currently being implemented in our agency. • Renewed interest in Aflac to improve benefit options for our employees • New Payroll vendor to improve the ability to reimburse our caregivers more efficiently and effectively • Improve client hours/shift coverage to reduce missed visits • Continued QA work to improve our STAR rating to 4.5/5.0 Our CSR team has been “split” into specific job responsibilities while having the common goal of 100% customer satisfaction. Rachel and her team continue to support Skilled, Angel supports the School and professional CC clients/staff and Chatara supports and supervises our paraprofessional staff and the clients they support. Kasey works with our customers to assure their invoices are correct, she works to secure payments from our clients and vendors, but primarily managed the documentation to bill, receive payment and reimburse caregivers, appropriately. Aflac Benefits – Open Enrollment Aflac representatives visited our office early in August. They have a reimbursement programs which allows employees to select benefit options paid by payroll deduction. Currently, employees can choose a reimbursement program(s) options to reimburse employees requiring medical, dental, sick/death, investment plans. In the future, it is expected that Interim of Oakland County will be contributing to these type of plans by assisting with the cost. The agency will be hosting employee benefit fair during our annual Open Enrollment period. Additional information will be announced in the next month. In the meantime, if you have questions about the current AFLAC opportunities, you may contact, Angel Gootee. Employee Bonus Opportunities Our agency is establishing multiple employee bonus programs for employees willing to fulfill specific employment contracts both on short term and long term schedules. These contracts are utilized to attract and retain the highest level of professional willing to commit to attending the assigned client without calling off or being late for the term of the contract, with the expectation of maximum reimbursement. Once the employee meets the attendance and performance requirements of the contract, the employee secures the bonus. The CSR and Clinical team staff are well-versed in the bonus options and all questions should be directed to members of these teams.

“I talked with you this morning about two of your caregivers, Danielle the nurse and Sheetal the physical therapist. Again I wanted to let you know what a fine job they both did after my wife's knee replacement surgery. My wife and I believe they are very competent, caring, and responsible.”
