Finding Coding From Home Work

I have been certified for almost one year now.  I currently work for a diagnostic imaging company and I am interested in finding legitimate companies who will work with a coder that has a little under one year experience.  Any suggestions? I have done countless internet searches and resume postings with little results.

thanks.

Hi Suzanne,

"Coding from Home" is a very, very, very hard position to find.  Those with a coding designation (CPC) usually work on-sight, within a physicians office, but more often within a hospital.  "Coding Outsourcing" is usually provided by a practice management company.  Most persons with coding training and designations work within hospitals.  Most private practice physicians offices do not employ "coders."  If you are looking for a "stay-at-home" position, medical billing (outsourcing) can be started or done from home.  Medical billing can be done off-site in your own business and because medical billing handles more of the "financial accounting" of the practice (and not the medical aspect), it does not require you understand much of the medical side of the practice (terminology, anatomy, etc.)

Good luck to you.

Tammy

Thank you for the advice and your prompt response Tammy.  I guess I am just confused about all the ads I see for coders to work from home and how they are in demand.  In my area of South Florida, we are saturated with certified coders.  It is not easy for a relatively "new" coder to find a good coding position, everyone wants at least 2 years experience and won't even consider hiring you.  I got lucky and found a company willing to give me a chance, but I want to try other specialties too.

Hey Suzanne, I am moving to Southwest Florida, Miami in about 6 weeks and I am a certified medical coder/biller and a medical transcriptionist, you said they gave you a chance;  I did not quite finish my internship, but I love billing and coding and posting and I would like to try a company in SW Miami, when I get there in about 6 weeks, can you tell me who gave you a chance in Florida.. Thanks:)

So you say that Medical Coding can't be done at home? I was trying to get started at home also. I work for a third party billing company already doing some coding for almost a year now and I am a certified coder. I have more experience in billing than coding and would like to try both but I wanted to start coding first then get into the billing at home next. Is there anyone out there that has done coding at home and can give advice on how to start? Thanks for your help.

DO YOU DO PLASTIC / RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY CODING???  I DO NEED SOMEONE

Tina
August 16, 2006 @ 5:19 PM Reply  |  Email Friend   |  |Print  |  Top

I have done coding for several different specialties but not reconstructive/plastic surgery, but if you are willing to let me learn it I am a fast learner. I have a medical biller for about 19 years now along with being a certified coder so I am very familiar with all kinds of specialties. This could be done at home correct?

I have orthopedic surgery coding experience but not plastic surgery. If you need someone that already knows it I guess I am not the one you are looking for but I can learn fast. Let me know if you are interested.

Yes, I am interested.  I have a plastic surgeon that needs his reports coded, there aren't very many of them, I would say 5-10 a month.  How much would you charge per report?  Please reply to Advancedmb@comcast.net.  Thanks.
