Medical Billing and Coding Training Information
Want a great career that you can do from home? Want to earn money and have benefits? Well, listen up – because if you think that career is going to be medical billing and coding (and it can be) you're going to need training and classes – maybe even certifications and equipment to do the job (in some cases, software too!) There is a lot to think about. Do not go into a career change like this without getting all the information you can, including what type of training or education you might need, the expense of that education and how you'll fit classes into your current schedule. It takes dedication and it will take persistence finding an at home job in this field.
With all that being said, in just the last 5-7 years, more and more opportunities to work at home are flooding job boards. This includes medical billing, coding, transcription and more. And many are finding that the internet is making medical billing and coding jobs from home more and more common.

I do receive a lot of emails asking about these types of jobs.
Typical Medical Billing questions that I am asked:
1. Are these jobs real?
2. Can I work at home?
3. Can I train at home?
4. Where do I go to train and how much is it?
5. Where do I find a job once I'm trained?
(If you are trained or have experience, please see the medical billing and coding jobs search page for current work at home job leads.)
I understand. Any type of job that requires training typically means a cost. And when we're all watching our budgets and trying to get our kids educated – the thought of spending money on ourselves or our own education can take a backseat.
In general, I have heard positive feedback from those that have gone through training. I've also heard from those that already do this kind of work and they enjoy it. I've probably heard the most from medical transcribers. That type of work seems to be consistent and transcribers are in demand.
But here I want to mainly focus on medical billing and coding and resources that will help those that are honestly trying to figure out if they should delve in or not.
Below are some articles I have written about medical billing training and classes. I am still building this resource and trying to gather information, as well as update some posts. But please know, I am trying to cover all bases and provide answers for you.
