How to Work from Home Doing Medical Billing and Coding

Posted on

With more Americans having medical insurance, coupled with the tendency of healthcare facilities switching to electronic medical record keeping, not only is there more of a demand for medical billing and coding professionals, but also it allows medical billers and coders to work remotely from their homes and set their own work schedules.

In order to find a career in medical billing and coding field, you will first want to enroll in a medical billing and coding training program to prepare you to pass your professional certification. One common requirement to enter a training program is that you have your high school degree or GED. Often medical billing and coding professionals earn an associate's degree from an accredited college. The areas of study typical in a medical billing and coding school might include: ICD9 and ICD10 (International Classification of Diseases), medical terminology and anatomy, medical billing software, medical documentation evaluation, government insurance programs, basic math, keyboard and computer skills, and other medical office administrative duties. Be sure to check out Antonelli College's medical billing and coding degree and diploma programs; they offer accredited medical billing and coding programs both at campus locations in Mississippi as well as online.

Upon finishing your program, you will want to get certified by the AAPC (American Academy of Professional Coders). Usually the initial certification obtained is the CPC (Certified Professional Coder), which is the standard medical coding certificate. This certification will demonstrate to prospective employers that you are proficient in medical coding, coding procedures, and coding rules and regulations.

The next step for working from home as an as a medical billing/coding independent contractor is to get a business license from your state and possibly even from your county or city. Check with your state's website on business and commerce for more information on business licensing.

Next, you will need to market your medical coding and billing business. You can build yourself a website with a site builder for those with no website experience, such as Wix. It also is important to build up your web and social media profiles on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yelp and countless others. Don't worry, most all of those are free and only require some time and effort on your part.

Search online for independent opportunities. You can find these on job sites, employment boards and online healthcare directories. Hunt for opportunities; they are out there!

Finally, don't forget to look within your local medical community for medical billing job opportunities. Reach out to local medical offices and area hospitals to request an interview or meeting. Even if an office has billers and coders in-house, why not offer to handle any overflow work they may experience during busy times?

A career in medical billing and coding is attractive to those seeking an allied health career with good future outlook. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), medical billing and coding jobs should be “very good” for billing and coding specialists. Their projected outlook states that there will be a 20% between 2008 and 2018 in medical billing and/or coding opportunities, which is significantly faster than the average for all other occupations.

If you're looking for a new career field with a promising future, now is a great time to look into a medical billing and coding career.
