I have heard of quite a few people who have started on the payor side. I personally just tried to get my foot in the door at a clinic- began as a receptionist, moved on to surgery scheduling, and then on up. I found that in all of these positions, I was dealing with coding, whether it be pre-authorizing or what not. Even though I was not strictly "coding" all day, I had enough exposure to coding that it qualified as experience.
Best of luck to you!
