I have recently graduated from a medical billing and coding program with honors and I am also a CPC-A.  What is or are the best type of positions to apply to in order to get my career off on the right foot?



Thank you for all your assistance and advice in advance,

Tim

I would look for billing jobs, have a billing background will really make you a better coder. having an understanding of denials, appeals, etc. will have you invaluable as a coder because you have seen what a simple mistake can do and it will help you to be a more accurate coder.
