Just want to give you a heads up that there aren't really any entry level remote coding jobs. When a company is looking for a remote coder they want someone who has been in the coding field for awhile, who has onsite experience, they don't want to have train on everything, they want someone who can be independent with coding, and they normally want someone who has 2 or more years of experience. So if you want to get your foot in the door look for onsite coding positions to gain that experience. Based on your resume it doesn't seem like you have worked in the medical field so you should hands down look for an onsite coding position. Schooling only gives you the basic training to help you obtain the certifications its the onsite coding that will teach you a lot more.

For coding experience is key to getting a remote coding job in the future. Plus being around the more experienced coders from being onsite you learn so much more and you have people there to help or get ideas off of. So look for onsite coding positions first it will help you in the long run and take you further in your career with you just starting off as a new coder and new to the medical filed.

Good luck

Hi Codergirl93 - I would LOVE to be able to find a position where I live; however, onsite entry level coder positions are not available so I am seeking any opportunity I can. I live in a smaller city and I know if I lived in a bigger metropolitan area it would be much easier to find an onsite position, but that's not the case. I'm eager to get started and just need someone to give me the opportunity to prove I can be an asset to their team. Everyone starts somewhere :)

Entry level remote positions are found in the HCC segment of coding (Diagnostic coding for risk adjustment). There are several HCC companies that hire CPC-A for remote work with training. Although it usually has peaks and valleys since most of the work is centered around specific submission deadlines. Due to the cyclical workloads, there is no guarantee of 40 hours or permanent schedule but at least it adds experience. I think its getting closer to the point when hiring starts to ramp up.

Hey CodingKing -

Thanks for the heads up on HCC coding - I'm willing to take on any experience I can to get my career started! I'm determined! Do you happen to know any companies I should look into for starting out? Or shall I just rummage the internet for HCC positions and flood my resume everywhere? :)

Try networking with a recruiting company like Oxford HIM, there are a lot out there. They can help find you positions either contracted or permanent. Also look on Maxium Health Care. But you should look up Oxford HIM and send them your information. I know that they always have companies looking for coders and they are always remote positions. Another good think about a company like Oxford HIM they follow you on your career path so lets say you get a contracted job that is only for 6 months, what your recruiter would do is before your contract ends they would have another position lined up for you.

Their website is oxfordhim.com. They have contacted me with job offers which were pretty well paid positions. But if you find another recruiting company do some research on them because there are some recruiting companies that aren't very professional. If you go on Glassdoor. com you can see reviews and some other things from people you have been employed by that company.

Hope some of this helps.
