Although this sounds like a marvelous solution, most companies that offer remote coding opportunities expect you to replicate a professional and confidential (remember, we're working with medical records) office environment in your home. I've said this before on this board....This means that you must have within your home a secure office, and have the ability to accomplish your work during the day. You can't get up every five minutes to fix a sandwich or change a diaper. Working off the kitchen table while the kids watch Barney is not what most coding companies (or hospitals) expect or even allow.
New coders......Please, please research the expectations of this industry before spend your hard-earned money on coding courses, exams and job searches. The number of posters on this board who are inexperienced, disillusioned and unemployed is staggering, but this is another area of coding that is typically not available to brand-new coders.
I agree with Kevin that I wouldn't be at all interested in working from home, since I would rather not think that "out of sight, out of mind" would apply to me! I prefer to be in the midst of it all!
