Frequently Asked Questions

    How hard is it to get an entry level position in medical coding?
    I need to work from home because I take care of my mother-in-law and can not leave the house to work. I am currently enrolled in an online college taking medical coding; it is a 2 year Associates Degree program.

    • ANSWER:
      You can work from home as a coder ( I work from home), but, you need AT LEAST 2-4 years of working as a coder first. And getting an initial job as a coder can be hard. Most have to work as an entry level (non coding) HIM job for at least a year before moving up to a coding position.

      So if you are looking for a job to do right away from home, this is not the field for you. Most schools mislead prospective students about work at home coding jobs. They tell you that to sell you their education. It is always a good idea to research a particular field, school or program before enrolling.

    I am thinking about taking online classes for medical coding but I want to be sure there are jobs out there before I spend my money on a degree I can’t use.

    • ANSWER:
      Per Dept of Labor and stats demand is projected to remain high. You can check locally by calling around to several dr. offices or hospitals for info.

      Also – I commend you for considering further education and make sure you consider several options. You can choose any school including private or online schools as long as they are accredited and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

      There is a lot of misinformation about online schools as well as private schools. Most are legitimate but some are not so ask for references and check independent websites out such as U.S. Dept of Ed., BBB and other accreditation sources.
