I started out working at a hospital in a couple different departments...first surgery. I worked in the surgical waiting room, data entry, surgery holding area and then surgery control desk. I then worked in outpatient registration as a medical registrar checking in patients for outpatient procedures and registration for outpatient labs, xrays, etc. I have also worked for an offsite billing company as a patient account rep and also for a private physician's office as a front desk receptionist/medical biller. I am now in the O&P (Orthotic/Prosthetic) field as an office manager, which I am seeking other opportunities right now since the practitioners do the coding in this field. You may not immediately get the position you want, but if you can get a job somewhat similar to your field, then you have a good chance of obtaining the position you want. I am now a CPC-A and like many others, am struggling to find a coding position or internship/externship, but I keep on looking and applying for positions. I have 2 interviews scheduled tomorrow, so I am pretty happy about that.
