I have my CMBS from Medical Association of Billers and I got that before I took a coding class. Once I got into coding, that was it. I found my thing! But it is a feather in the hat to have some billing background as well as perform mainly coding functions. It is a fine line between the two very different worlds. I did both until I was so overwhelmed that I hired the best I could afford and I keep her happy. Thus I was able to focus on account retention services and acquiring more business. It is very easy to get pegged as a biller and then the company hires a coder because they can't lose you in billing. As a coder, it is good to collaborate with the billing department but from my experience, pick a side and focus there. Actually, persons who have an Accounting background make for adequately talented billers. This is only from one person's experience and exposure. If this has offended anyone in anyway, my apologies in advance.
