Full Description :

The RN Assessor performs field-based, functional assessments on Medicaid beneficiaries. This is a traveling position, as assessments are completed in client homes, provider sites, or other community-based locations. An assessor may travel the entire state of Arkansas, including occasional training in Little Rock. However, they are hired to cover a general geographic region. They are compensated on an hourly basis, focusing on quality of assessments/documentation, not on quantity. The goal of these assessments is to determine eligibility for services, as well as assist the State of AR to develop a plan of care for each beneficiary. The assessor neither provides clinical services, nor are they completing a clinical assessment.

  • Will be primarily in the field performing assessments, but will do any administrative work from home
  • Identify potential care and/or provider gaps
  • Assesses and triages immediate health concerns
The challenge here lies in your ability to quickly assess a variety of cases face-to-face with your clients. The pace is fast, and you’ll need strong computer and communication skills to succeed.
You’ll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
