Modeless im not sure about the program to get certified but I know those women at work are always going on some type of vacation. They get bonuses 2ce a year and it ain't no little bonus.

dangg really?

i wish there were a way to find out for sure...i'd hate to do this and not find anything...

Two questions:

1.) I read to skip the"billing" part and go straight into medical coding...true?

2.) I also read that more often than not those 6 months programs wont land you a job...and that its a waste of money...no? yes?

thanks in advance



For the school I went to billing and coding was one program. Maybe other places have it separately.
And my program was six months too. They found me a job, but it wasn't even a billing or coding job.


what was the job?

Medical records coordinator. It was a small office and they already had two billers. Still looking for that coding job now.

Guys why don't you get a job at a hospital/medical company for any entry level position then get the company to pay for your course through tuition reimbursement. I know its a hassle but I would rather do that than give Sallie mae another gotdang dime.

im guessing after you do a 6 month certification program, nobody hires someone with no experience.
