    Nomadone and epilcher,

    Sorry I have been out of the loop to answer your questions and comments. I clicked on MedAssurant link thru this forum and they got in touch with me. I started training February 2nd but had to stop on February 5th because of my own computer problems. Started class again on February 9th and took the test last night and passed the first time. I am really nervous to start work on Tuesday at ST. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. I am scheduled for the rest of this week there. I do not know anything about a preceptor. I have an Employee Relations Coordinator out of Maryland and that's it so far. Unfortunately I will be going in there solo on Tuesday but the rest of the week I am working with someone else there. I know my skills are good, but any words of encouragement from anyone about how not to feel like a sheep going in amongst the wolves would be most appreciated.

    Hello. I was reading over your conversation and went to the website to apply for a home based coder position. I have never worked as a remote coder. I have always worked out of an office setting. Currently, I am looking for a position coding. It really does not matter to me if its remote or at the actual office. If anyone hears of any positions that are available out there please let me know. I reside in Queens, New York. I am looking in the New York City area or in the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn and some areas in Nassau County. I had been working as a medical coder since 2004 in the emergency department for Weill Cornell Medical University Center in New York City. I thought it was time for me to grow and move up professionally to the position of a Compliance Specialist for the department of Neurological Surgery, but that unfortunately is not working out for me nor the administrator or the manager. Therefore, I am searching endlessly for another job. So again if anyone knows of anything in this area please contact me via email at caya040472@yahoo.com. I really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks again and sorry I know I went some what off the topic of conversation!

    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me what sort of coding MedAssurant does? I am at a small hospital and have only done Outpatient coding, ICD-9 and just a few CPTs here and there. Most things are linked to our Chargemaster.

    Do they give you an encoder for the home computer system? Books?

    Any current thoughts or information about this or other coding from home companies would be most helpful.

    Thanks in advance, L

    I thought it was a great place to work for from home, but after getting 100 % accuracy rating at my annual review, which was only 2 months ago, I was fired and never had any complaints or issues, nothing.
    Their training is not for new coders because another person on this site is correct, they are conflicting on their training, and are really not all that compliant with CMS. They also expect you to work on business matters like emails, reports, flow sheets,etc. for free, no, they don't pay you for any of that time worked. On the other hand, if you can get through all the hurdles they throw at you, it's decent pay for working from home. You just never know when it's your turn.

    what was their reason for firing you?

    Hi,
    On a positive note, I've been employed my MedAssurant since October of 2008 and I'm happy to say that I was fortunate.....I never experienced some of the stuff that other people have been experiencing. My theory, work your forty hours, meet your productivity, be available at least 1 hour a day it should be a pleasurable experience.

    Yes they don't offer benefits, however you get to earn CEU from their various webinars and/or training.

    Where I live there is a time difference, so that was the only challenging part.

    For anyone out there who is thinking about wanting to apply at MedAssurant, I say go for it!

    Good Luck!

    I have been reading all of the replies regarding MedAssurant and their employment practices. All of the postings have old dates. Everything posted is from 2009 and 2008. Does anyone have any new information about these positions? I am reading more negative responses than positive responses but would like to hear more recent information and experiences.

    Great company to work for...steady employment with overtime opportunity and they offer a 401k with up to 4% company contribution. No other Benifits, but a great perks at working from home!

    All they ask is to be available to work a minimum of 40 hours per week, maintain 95% accuracy rate, be available for one-on-one with your lead once a week.

    They offer Free Paid training and ongoing CEU each month. Starting pay around $18/hour and you set your oun schedule. If you maintain your Quota of 5 charts or more per hour each week you can work overtime up to 75 hours per week.

    They supply you a computer, ICD-9 book, Paid training and one on one person to help you until you get up to speed.

    Great company and as lond as you follow the rules...it is GREAT working from home! They have many on going projects I have been trained in 4 of their projects and have very busy with no less than 40 hours per week.

    Very steady work where you can pick up 10, 20 or more extra hours every week!

    In summary.............GREAT Company...Steady Pay Check! Not bad in this tough job economy!!!!

    I AGREE with you -- I worked with them last year and had no problems. I had to leave due to a family emergency and could not fulfill my hours at that time. The only thing that I can say is, come of the leads a not very nice. Hopefully, they fixed that!
