For Hire: 600 Jobs at Cerner

College degree not necessary

By John Sharp

Cerner Corporation is in the midst of hiring about 600 patient account specialists who do not need college degrees for its Realization Campus at 10234 Marion Park Dr. in South Kansas City.

These medical billing positions start at $15 an hour, or more with experience, and newly hired employees are eligible for benefits from day one, according to Maria Gibbs, a recruiting director for Cerner.

Speaking to the May 14 meeting of the South Kansas City Alliance, Gibbs said new employee classes start every two weeks, and employees go through about a month of paid training before assuming their regular duties.

According to the Cerner website, patient account specialists are responsible for reviewing, correcting and submitting claims to payers for physicians and hospitals.  This involves communicating with patients, government agencies and third party payers to gather, process and record the information needed for appropriate reimbursement.

The website said applicants for these positions need a high school diploma or GED, must be willing to work overtime or irregular hours as needed and must reside in or be willing to relocate to the Kansas City area.  At least one year of health care billing experience is preferred, but not required.

To apply, persons may go online to, click on Explore Openings, type in patient account specialist under Job Search, click on Search Now, scroll down under Job Descriptions and click on Patient Account Specialist – 39668BR and click on Apply Now.

Gibbs said qualified applicants will have a 5-10 minute mobile device friendly video interview followed by an in-person team interview.

  1. Is there a age cap i just retired, did billing for over 20 years, live down the street from u

  2. Is there a reason why I cant apply for the jobs as a Patient Account Specialist 39668BR. I just heard about the opening.

  3. Unfortunately, I’m not finding these specific positions open on the website either.. There is a Lead and Senior position open for Account Specialist, but not the one mentioned here. There are very few jobs open on the website that don’t require a Bachelor’s Degree.

  4. I work for Cerner now and have not heard of these positions. I believe this is a fake article or a very outdated one.

    1. This article appeared In the May 15 issue of the Martin City Telegraph. Since it was posted online May 22 there have been close to 40,000 views of this article. My guess is the jobs have been filled. Editor.
