Berrien County Health Department to add business analyst |

BENTON TOWNSHIP — Berrien County Health Department will hire a business analyst.

Health Officer Guy Miller said the Board of Health approved the new position at their meeting Wednesday. The department wants to improve their clinic billing process, so that claims will get insurance approval on the first try, rather than the second.
