I AM OVER 40, A MALE, AND NO EXPERIENCE IN THE MEDICAL BILLING OR CODING, BUT I NEED TO GET STARTED, PREFERABLY ON AN ON-LINE COURSE OR A HOME STUDY COURSE THAT HAS GOOD CREDENTIALS AND THEN I COULD PASS AN EXAM GIVEN BY AHIMA OR AAPC, ETC. ALSO, WILL PASSING A CERTIFIED CODING ASSOCIATE GET ME IN THE RING. ALSO I HAVE A LIMITED FINANCIAL BUDGET. I HOPE ITS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK. THX, SINCERELY, AMIR

Hi Amir,

You might want to check out online training courses available at www.pmiMD.com. There are more than 20 classes for coding, biling, and medical office professionals. These classes were written by a continuing education instructor, who addresses beginner through advanced level training. While you are at the Web site, check out the  self-paced coding and billing certification programs offered by Practice Management Institute.

Consider Meditec.com's courses too.  Very good on-line training with platform learning (much easier than memorizing things).  Coding training for certification too.  Lots of actual patient charts for practice.

Try www.ritecode.com to get a start.  Don't worry about being a man; although rare, we are increasing in number.  By the way, I am 39 and only been at it for four years.
