Company Overview:

Cohere Health is illuminating healthcare for patients, their doctors, and all those who are important in a patient’s healthcare experience, both in and out of the doctor’s office. Founded in August 2019, we are obsessed with eliminating wasteful friction that patients and doctors experience in areas that have nothing to do with health and treatment, particularly for diagnoses that require expensive procedures or medications. To that end, we build software that is expressly designed to ensure the appropriate plan of care is understood and expeditiously approved, so that patients and doctors can focus on health, rather than payment or administrative hassles.

Opportunity Overview:

We are looking for a Medical Director who will lead our Pain Management Associate Medical Directors and perform clinical reviews. Reporting to the Senior Medical Director for Cohere Health, and part of the review team that includes non-clinical intake specialists and nurses, this is a critical role in a Series B company that is rapidly scaling to impact millions of patients. This is a fast-paced environment that favors people who are able to learn quickly, be hands-on, handle ambiguity, and communicate effectively with people of different backgrounds and perspectives. This is a permanent remote, full-time position.

Last but not least: People who succeed here are empathetic teammates who are candid, kind, caring, and embody our core values and principles. We believe that diverse, inclusive teams make the most impactful work. Cohere is deeply invested in ensuring that we have a supportive, growth-oriented environment that works for everyone.

  • Clearly and accurately document all communication and decision-making in Cohere workflow tools, ensuring a member and provider can easily reference and understand your decision
  • Use correct templates for documenting decisions during case review
  • Meet the appropriate turn-around times for clinical reviews
  • Conduct timely peer-to-peer discussions with treating providers to clarify clinical information and to explain review outcome decisions, including feedback on alternate treatment based on medical necessity criteria and evidence-based research
  • Support the clinical guidelines team in developing and reviewing the company’s clinical decision guidelines in conjunction with client guidelines and directives
  • Perform timely review of Medical Coverage Policies for our clients
  • Maintain awareness of any changes in the literature, standard of care, or regulatory guidance impacting the criteria by which the company reviews service requests
  • Maintain necessary credentials and immediately informs Cohere of any adverse actions relating to medical licenses and/or board certifications
  • Perform other duties as delegated
