Our staff spotlight this month is Michelle. As a valued team member at Red Rock Fertility Center, Michelle, our Authorization Specialist, not only helps our patients when it comes to building a family, but she always works hard to answer any and all questions about insurance and other administrative asks. Michelle works with our patients before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and once the families welcome their babies into the world.

Be available to answer questions relating to patients, insurance and any other administrative duties.
What’s the most exciting part of your job?
When we have positive pregnancy, see the babies, and most importantly approve authorization for patient[s] to go through testing or treatment.

Working with patient[s] and educating them about their insurance benefits and coverage relating to fertility.
What do you think makes Red Rock Fertility Center a unique place for fertility treatment?
It’s the back end of administrative duties that [the] patient does not see or hear before they walk through our doors. We will go above and beyond.
How is the team at Red Rock Fertility Center unique to the market?
We work with patient’s insurance, obtain updates, and educate ourselves with their benefits. It’s an ongoing change in the insurance & healthcare industry and we need to know this and update our office/patients. We strive to educate ourselves in dealing with the change.
