interested in medical billing

Hello!  I am interested in pursuing a degree in medical billing/coding, but am not sure if I will be able to find work.  I cannot work outside the home after finishing the schooling.  Is it possible to jump right in without on the job experience?  Is there anyone out  there that would consider an apprenticeship?

It's really hard to say, you have to just keep at it. Most practices do want experience, but there is always a chance to show a physician or other provider what you lack in experience you can make up for with education. You might have to start at a lower level entry position.
