    Default CPC-A looking for a job.

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering if there was any possibilities in finding a at-home coding position with just a CPC-A. I have three children, I take my mom to dialysis on Mondays and sit with my dad on Fridays. I have work experience but not as a coder. I feel that I can do the job if given the chance. Please give me some pointers on how to find a job. I have applied for many jobs, not just coding positions, but also for receptionist and medical records and been rejected or not selected. Thank You!

    You may want to try a billing service. They often times will hire people with not much experience. I have worked at a couple of them, and people are hired and much of the time if you are willing to work you can move up fairly quickly. Anyway, it would give you experience. Might not work for everyone, but its worth a try. Good Luck!

    Smile Work from home

    I am currently a inpatient coder for a local hospital and a Coding/Billing instructor in the evening. I am burned out and would like to find a job from home myself. I appreciate anyone who can help with ideas.

    Do you know of any billing services or websites I can check to see about job openings?
