    Default Medical Clearinghouse vs. Physician Group Practice

    AAPC: Back to School
    I will be graduating in June 2011, and I was wondering if it would be more beneficial to start my medical billing and coding career in a Medical Clearinghouse or a Physician Group Practice? I would appreciate any assistance. Thank You.

    Please clarify what you're meaning by "medical clearing house?"

    A "Medical Billing Clearinghouse" is a company that acts as a middleman by checking electronic medical claims submitted by healthcare providers for any errors before they are submitted to the insurance company for reimbursement.

    I think you would learn more with a physician practice. Clearing house is alot of paper pushing and you dont interact that much with the medical providers
