I have heard there are people who travel doing coding, but I have not been able to find any ligitimate company or find much information for travel coders. Does any one know about this type of job and where I can find work for travel coders, how I can get into travel coding or any staffing agency for travel coders? Or if you can provide information about travel coders that will be find.

try these

I have not worked as a traveling coder (not my thing since I have a small child), but I have received offers from:

http://www.cybercoders.com/

http://www.kforce.com/

http://www.maximhealthinformationservices.com/

http://www.thecodingsource.com/

you can also try searching:
http://www.indeed.com/jobs?q=travel+coder&l=

Even if these companies don't have anything posted, if you post your resume or send them an email they will contact you about traveling opportunities. They are always looking for people to travel.

I was just hired by RAM and apparently they are working for Wellpoint. It is a traveling coding position and I have young kids but have supportive backup. The next training starts July 14 and since I live in AZ they have a lot of work here. I just finished coding class and passed my CPC a week or so ago. I have also been offered a remote coding position with MedAssurant so the work is out there.

Ram

I was offered job with RAM today, but they didn't ask me to take a coding test. I thought this was really unusal. How did the process work for you? It sounds like a really good oppurtunity, but I'm not sure about the company.

RAM also

I too was offerred a job by a RAM rep yesterday and am soooo unhappy in current position I really want to take this but am cautious. No coding test for me either and I also thought that very strange. Rep just wanted to confirm that I am certified. All feedback helpful, thanks.

Out of curiosity...what type of payrange do these postions offer?
Is it enough to offset the value of travel and being away from home?

I currently work for RAM and officially today they are closing their doors on April 10, 2010. They are no longer hiring. If there is anyone here that is aware of a company hiring Travel Coders, please email me with the most needed contact information: travelcoder@hotmail.com

Thank you kindly for your time and cooperation in this desperate matter.

I ALSO HAD A CONTRACT WITH RAM. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU TRY TCN AND REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE CREDENTIALS THAT ALLOW YOU TO EXPLORE OTHER OPPORTUNITIES.

Try applying to KForce, Maxim Healthcare Services, Peak, The Coding Source. They are all companies that place Travel Coding Consultants. Put your resume on the internet and indicate you are interested in travel work. Assignments and pay vary with experience but it is also a good way to get experience.
