I leave an impression that I can stand up to the challenges that the work has to offer and in my own assessment, I know I didn't fail them in any way. I have improved and developed my organization and communication skills during my last job and I continue to strive excellence in everything I do.
It is quite a problem when a claim gets rejected or is not paid. I make sure that no delays occur when submitting claims as I appreciate the fact that the longer a claim is unpaid, the less likely it is to be paid and can get rejected too. However, should this situation occur, I make sure that I correct and re-submit the claim as soon as possible. Further, I'll can establishing measure to Reduce Claim Denials.
I find out why a claim has either been rejected or left unpaid. If the insurance company has made a mistake in rejecting it, I re-file it after providing further information on why it should have been paid. If the insurance company is right in denying it, I follow up with the client in order to solicit payment.
The longer claims go unpaid, the less likely it is they will be paid. Getting denied or rejected claims corrected and re-submitted can be a lot of revenue to a provider.

I would expect this question to be asked more for medical coding jobs. Certification in medical billing is a definite plus, but I haven't seen that requirement for strictly medical billing jobs. Certification does show you are committed to your profession and meet certain minimum standards. If you are not certified, a good response would be that you are working towards certification - assuming you are. But don't dwell on what credentials you don't have - emphasize the experience and skills you do have.
I have been using computer and softwares comfortably. Apart from being able to work with most common software, tell if you are familiar with any Medical Billing Software or EMR Software System e.g IntelleChart and ECLIPSE.
Yes, I keep myself constantly updated with Medical Billing and Coding industry updates in regular basis. Additionally, certification upgrades help and so does maintaining liaison with insurance companies and other healthcare agencies help as well.
Interviewers want to know whether, in addition to dealing with clinical records and submitting medical claims, you can also deal with patient calls and work with other medical billing personnel to resolve disputes.
