I haven't read Paul's book so I can't comment on it.  What 'level' are you at?  Do you have any experience?  Have you decided for sure on this business or are you looking for info to help make a decision?

I am currently in the research phase.  Looking for as much information as possible to see if I can develop a viable business plan and move forward with opening a billing business.  I currently have another business that does not require much time to run and is virtually on "autopilot", so I can afford to take my time, do some homework, and see if this is something I want to put energy and resources into.

That being said, I do have marketing/sales experience from my other businesses which would be applicable to getting a billing business going.  So, I am looking for a book that lays out all the details of the billing business from A to Z so that I can become more educated on the industry as a whole.  I do have a friend that used to be involved in billing/coding (awhile back) that I am able to bounce questions off of, however, I need some literature (as current as possible) that can educate me on everything billing/coding related.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks.

Michele

Michele,

Thanks for the response.  The main reason I was looking into this book was because it is linked on the medicalbillingcourse.com site.  So I figured it would be very comprehensive and thorough as I have heard the medicalbillingcourse.com is a great resource.

Any other up to date/recent books that can help in my educating myself on the entire business?

Thanks.

I believe if you buy the recommended book by Michelle and take the course you will be well informed and updated as the course will probably have it's own book for you to read (updated) and then you can compare both, knowledge is power and you should not limit yourself to just updated version's of a book.
