Health plan manager - There is a lot of waste in health care. Unfortunately, being a manager at a health plan is part of the waste. I wouldn't recommend it as a career. I hope that President Obama is successful at reforming health care. There is too much bureaucracy and very little reward, other than money and status. That is sufficient for many, but not enough for many. Health plan managers do not seem to make a difference or have the ability to improve health care or help their customers make progress.
I am a health care service manager.This sector has great potential for individual to grow.This career demands more knowledge and interest to learn new things on the job.Lot of opportunities exist for health care management.You should have science background to understand medical terminologies.This career demands a great deal of responsibility , good values and proper ethics while dealing with patient care.
I am an office manager for a surgeon. I would not recommend this to anyone. The hours are long, there are no guarantees of set work hours, emergencies pop up all of the time that you are required to complete. Being in charge of others is not ideal because you have to rely on them to get specific work done and often they don't, or are not reliable, or not competent, and anything not done falls back on you because you are ultimately responsible. You can work up to a decent salary but there is a lot of stress and aggravation involved.
