Medical Billing Online Courses
« on: October 10, 2008, 03:19:52 PM »
Dear Members:

I need advice from the experts.  I have 20+ years of office experience and have recently been laid off.  As I search for employment, I see that medical billers and coders seem to be in demand.

I have some billing and collections experience but not in the medical field.  Are online medical billing courses a good way to learn how to do this work?  If so, what do you think I need to look for in a quality course?

Thank you for any direction you can give me.

Carol

When I wanted to change careers to Medical Billing I got a job in a doctors office as receptionist and learned the industry. Within 2 years I was a Certified Medical Biller. Healthcare offices would prefer to hire someone with healthcare experience as opposed to schooling.

good luck

I agree, we prefer to hire employees with experience rather than schooling.  We have heard of some online courses though that are good.  I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner.  I had planned on getting some info for you, but I went out of town for a couple days.  I will forward this to Alice to see if we can get you some more info.
