12 years of medical experience. Go to the site for AAPC and look into the ISP program. It helps you prepare for the 5 hour exam to get certified.
12 years of medical experience I don't have...lol. I will take a look. I was considering Medical Billing. You can get certified online right?
As a CPC?? No, you have to go onsite to the closest location and take the exam. They give you 5 hours to take it. On average it takes 3x before some people are able to pass it. It is very hard. Luckily, JIFNIF and I passed our first time.
Ever look into medical trascription? They are always hiring and you can work from home.
I've thought about medical transcription as well. I used to work for a company that had people who did this and they made a pretty good living at it. I will look into it. There are just so many sham's out there that offer certification in medical billing and transcription. So if I go to the AAPC it is better?
Yes, for coding but they do not offer certification for transcription. Not sure who does.
Well I will look into it. Thanks for the advice.
