FINALLY was able to post.  Look, I have a few questions I need to ask and this is the error message I keep getting.  

I want to stress that I am in NO way, shape, or form using inappropriate language.  I'm not even using anatomical language for male and female parts.  

Can someone please point me in the right direction to a forums that does not have this filter?  It is very important that I get a few questions answered ASAP!  Thank you so much!

Hello!  My name is Karen and I am a student at Institute of Business and Medical Careers (IBMC) in Longmont, Colorado.  I am enrolled in the Medical Billing and Coding degree program and have carried a 4.0 GPA throughout my program.  I am set to graduate very soon.

Currently I am in a career marketing strategies class and have been assigned to ask a medical biller and/or coder a few questions regarding the job.  Since internet safety is of utmost importantce I've decided to ask my questions here, as a brief survey, and gather multiple responses instead.  If you're willing to assist me please post your responses as a reply to this thread.


Any help with my assignment is greatly appreciated.  Thank you, kindly, in advance.

Private.

2-year degree from a technical school, possibly certifications, CPC, ect

General billing duties from superbill that is filled out by doctors.  Follow up.  I also may check-in patients on a busy day but usualy just work the check-out.

4)  What personal qualities or traits do you feel are important in your work?
Compassion.  We're dealing with sick peole.  But remember your responsibility is to the provider, not the patient.  Balance things.  If provider isn't paid they can't continue to work.  You also need good attention to detail.

5)  What do you like the most and least about your job?
Dealing with sick patients who cannot pay.  My heart goes out to them.  That's the worst.  The thing I like best about my job is the environment in which I work and the people I work with.

Show that you're at least familar with basic code sets, HCPCS, ect.

7)  What advice can you give me about planning my career and job search and what advice can you give me about preparing and interviewing successfully?
Stay up-to-date on some of the rules, join a professional organization for their newsletters.  Make sure you dress appropriately for the interview.  I've seen too many people dressed inappropriately and I will not recommend them.  Look up on the internet for what to wear.  Also be confident.
