What does an RN UAS Assessor do?

As mentioned, in this role, you will complete an interview with a patient to determine their eligibility for Long Term Care Services. Assessments are now 50% field-based and 50% telehealth. You will typically schedule about 2-3 assessments a day. Your days will be evenly split between telehealth (remote) assessments and field-based assessments where you will need to travel to the patient’s location.

If you’re an experienced home health RN who is looking to step away from direct patient care, this would be a great opportunity for you! You will still have the chance to provide critical health care to your patients but without the physicality of direct care. The UAS assessments you complete will help better align your patient’s services with their needs in the home.

Do I need to work weekends?

Not at all! This position is Monday-Friday from 9-5, 35-40 hours a week. For full-time employees, overtime is available for weekend and night assessments!

If you’d prefer a part-time position, you must be available to work 15+ hours a week and be available to train full time for a period of approximately 2-3 weeks (part-time training is available for candidates who have prior UAS experience from within the past year).

What kind of benefits are available?

Our RN UAS candidates have medical insurance, with no waiting period! We also supply vision insurance, pet insurance, PTO, paid holidays, vacation pay, and a 401k with employee match. The salary is $56.50 an hour (depending on experience) with weekly paychecks! Please note, no mileage reimbursement is offered for travel.
