Training very very good. I am really impressed. Now I just need to decide what to do, keep current job - quit and code from home. Code from home would put $12,000 more into my pocket. However you have to think about socialization.
    I code 4 U... I have worked with Medassurant and the most regretfull thing i could ever say is to PLEASE DON'T LEAVE YOUR FULL TIME JOB FOR THEM!!! I can't stress this enough. I have yet to hear of anyone being with them for years. You have your own oppinion and I wish you well but please do further research about the company before you let go of your full time stable job.!!! Please!!!

    Thank you. I have been waiting for someone to step up and tell me something. All I have run across is newly employed staff, that are pretty happy. There is a non compete contract that you have to sign, I put a call into them, to explain it in laymans terms. I am not going to sign it unless I understand it. The preceptor that I spoke with said she had never heard of such a thing. I can't believe that someone has not questioned the contract. I am suspicious because they want you to keep a 32hr wk job and give them 40. I got my test score yesterday, and there were real patient files in my download. I expressed the concern in regards to PHI and HIPAA, I have not returned my paperwork and there fore not covered under their confidentiality agreement. I don't see how one would transition from a traditional job into the remote job with out some concessions being made.
    You said to "research further" can you lead me where to look?
    Thank you for responding.

    This sounds great, do you know if they're any part time positions? I would love to do this from home on a part-time basis. Is it different specialities?

Now if I had quit my day job, I would have really been in bad shape. I thank God that I did not. I do not have any idea how many scans I will get now from week to week with MA. I am not able to download anymore tonight, so that means my hours will be short. I know I have went on and on, but please think before you quit your current job.

    I agree with "pamc". Please do not quit your day job. I did only to find out weeks later that the work had run out. No warning, no nothing. I went 4 weeks without a paycheck. I do find MA funny b\c they want you to work 40 hrs but then when they don't have work they expect you to sit around to wait for them, and you can only hope that they will have more work. I was lucky b\c this was not my primary source of income, but I do know for others it was and they were really hurting. To all out there I know it's a huge plus to work at home, but if you are going to be working for MA- DONT,DONT, DONT, quit your day job or have another source of income. Trust me you will be sorry if you dont.
