Hi all... I complete my courses in 2010 and then I got certified in December of that year. I applied for 2 Project Xterns and never heard back from either. Then I moved (I'm a military spouse) and the Project Xterns are too far away for me to consider. I kinda live in the boonies and I haven't been able to find any medical office jobs near me. I got into coding because of the allure of being able to work from home (and it interested me). I have 2 elementary school children. I've reached out to my local chapter to see if anyone would be willing to allow me to sit with them. No response. I job shadowed at the nearest hospital in the billing department, but the coding department redirected me to billing. ICD-10 is coming, and I don't know what to do? Should I spend the money going to my meetings and renewing my membership and taking courses when I haven't been able to get a job or even an internship with ICD-9? This career choice was one that was supposed to be catered to military spouses because it's a 'portable career'. I liked the training and I think I'd be good at it, but it's been very frustrating for me! I have a meeting in 2 days and I don't know if it's worth the 45 minute drive anymore. Thanks for listening!
