    Does anyone know anything about Maxim Health Services? I was just laid off, and that is one company that seems to be hiring. Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

    I was interviewed, took three tests, passed all of them, interviewed twice more, told I was hired and have yet ot receive any work. The people are super nice but it takes a lot of work to get hired and then............?

    They have coding tests for outpatient, inpatient and physician, you tell them where you expertise lies and they will send you the test. They are multiple choice and fill in the blank. I thought they were really easy stuff and I passed with 100%. I would apply if I were you, but you need to keep on top of them, you may not hear back unless you follow up every week to find out the status. I know they recently had a temporary Hawaii assignment with all expenses paid. So far they have not sent any work my way, but my availability is not 100% either. Good Luck!

    Hi,
    I interviewed and tested with Maxim. Took 3 of their tests and passed all of them. I was told I was hired as a remote VA coder - but after countless attempts to connect with the recruiter via phone and e-mail nothing ever came of it. All I was told was that there were issues on the facility side in getting access for new remote coders. I did all my testing in February of this year - now it is October.
    A friend of mine recently had a similar experience as mine. I'd say don't get your hopes up with Maxim.

    That is very disheartening to hear. Maxim calls me and emails me fairly often about different jobs but I don't want full time so I have always told them no thanks. Seeing these posts makes me wonder what they are trying to pull and it makes me glad I have never really needed to pursue anything thru them.

    Good luck in your search,

    I concur with Sandra, and know someone else who has had the same experience with Maxim.
    I have also received emails from them about job openings (remote coding in particular). I call them immediately after email is received and they say either
    the positions are filled, or there were contract issues with the perspective employer.

    I find it interesting that other people have had similar experiences with Maxim. Sort of an odd way for them to do business.....
    I will continue my search.

    Thanks for the input. I haven't had to look for a job for a long time, and this all makes me very nervous!

    I too have been recruited by Maxim in the past. It seems they advertise and recruit, and then keep a list of "qualified" coders for when they have need for a client. They put people thru their testing and other vetting processes for a specific position, then that position is always filled when the person completes the "hiring" process. Some will be lucky and be called eventually, but they do seem to keep a pool of potential coders for future clients. I guess on their business side, this is a good plan, but for coders looking for immediate employment, it doesn't seem fair. Ask lots of questions!
