Medical Director

  • Compensation: $244,000.00 - $366,000.00 per year
  • Required Qualifications:
  • City/State: Chula Vista, CA

I'm partnered with the largest Medicaid Health Plan in San Diego County to find a Medical Director to join the team!

This plan boasts a ranking of 4/5 from the NCQA which means you’re joining a high-performing plan with quality as their mainstay. The leadership within this organization share a strong passion to advocate and provide for the underserved community and are looking for a like-minded provider who wants to make a bigger impact.

In the role as a Medical Director, your focus will be Utilization Management, working alongside Case Managers and the Quality department to review documentation, oversee and approve care plans, work through grievances and denials, and build strong relationships with contracted physicians. This is a 100% administrative position with no clinical requirements.

You'll be joining an organization that has

  • 360,000 members to date and plan to have over 400,000 by the new year
  • 1.5 billion in revenue
  • a solid C-suite team (most of whom have been here for over a decade)
  • ·a goal of being ranked #1 nationally
  • 24/7 live customer service
  • automated referrals

Details of the role:

  • M-F (no weekend or call required)
  • On-site 
  • Work with a team of 3-5 Medical Directors
  • Preferred Family or Internal Med Specialty
  • 5+ years of clinical experience preferred

Passion and a willingness to learn trump UM experience (this can easily be taught, but a great personality can't!).

If you have a special relationship with the underserved population, are willing to work on-site in Chula Vista, and are excited to meet the team and grow your skills, we encourage you to apply!
