    I am newly certified and am wondering can you get work part time remotely to do coding when
    you are a new CPC-A.Or am I out of reality?

    I am sorry but it would be the latter rather than the former.

    Remote jobs usually fall under experienced coders because you work alone and really have no one to talk to or ask a question.

    yes unfortunately they all require many many years experience, knowledge of inpatient also and they will give you a test too take and you need to score rather high on that also, they also would rather you have CCS. Good Luck!

    I would think that it isn't IMPOSSIBLE to work remotely as a newly certified coder, but very highly unlikely. Pre-employment assessments are very common tools for the employer to use to gauge your "real-world" application of coding.

    As far as what knowledge is required, that most likely varies with each employer. Example: Inpatient coders need experience/knowledge of inpatient coding, while an ASC coder would typically not need inpatient experience/knowledge.

    If you are interested in remote coding, it might be more feasible for this to be a goal to work towards rather than a short term expectation. Most professionals I know would advise working in a traditional office setting and learning as much as you can. You can use this time to show your employer that you are a good candidate for eventually working remotely by being dependable, responsible, and organized. Good luck!
