I have worked in the medical field in not only medical coding but medical assisting as well. I currently am working as a remote outpatient coder, however they have changed my hours from flexible (8 hours anytime) to evening hours. I am seeking employment from a company that I can work daytime hours for. I am dependable, knowledgeable, and I learn quickly. I have worked for a level 4 hospital locally before my current position for a year. I coded all types of charts with them and currently am coding OBS, Ancillary, ER, and SDS. I also have a year's experience doing HCC coding, however I prefer employment over a contract. I can be reached at Angelwolfstorm@aim.com
