Default Coding from home

When I started school for Medical Coding in 2004, I really intended to Code from home. I still would really like to do that but would like some advice if anyone out there does it from home or knows what the requirements are, etc. Thank you. Candice

Default Remote Coding

Hey Candice,

Finding a work from home job may be a bit difficult cause it depends alot on experience. I currently don't work from home but I am interested in it. I do have friends who do work from home and some found jobs mostly through staffing companies like H.I.M. Recruiters, Peak Health Solutions and Aerotek. Websites like indeed.com often can direct you to other recruiters. It takes time but experience in different fields is a big plus. Hope this helps!

I just read about a site called sohojobs.org. I checked it out and there are a ton of jobs. There is a fee but from what I read it is WELL worth it!

I don't know if you all have been getting the email from the AAPC from the Coding Network looking for at-home coders, but it looks like a good oppertunity! They are looking for coders to work from home, anywhere in the U.S, part time or full time. You may be interested. I saved the email on my Blackberry. If any of you are interested, let me know and I can forward you the email.

Thanks,
Catherine

I do think I saw that email, as well. Unfortunately, I deleted it.

However, just recently, I was recommended to a recruiter for K-force and ended up receiving numerous calls for remote coding opportunities. Alas, I have way too much on my plate as it is, having a full time coding position and a 3 year old son. I quite like my job and my afternoons with my little one, so I decided that this was not the time to take on a second job whether it be remote or not.

ANYWAY, my point is that K-force is on the hunt for reputable coders to do some coding from home. I believe their website is www.kforce.com but, you can just google Kforce and I'm sure it'll come up. Hopefully you can speak to one of their headhunters.

I'm pretty sure they want someone with a few years experience and maybe some repute. I'd give it a shot though! Good luck!
