Hi,

First allow me to be very candid. I have been in the medical billing and coding industry for many years now and I have yet to see or hear of a legitimate company hiring home based medical billers to process their excess claims workload in exchange for either a salary or commission. If getting a job from home doing medical billing was a reality I (and several of my medical billing business owners associates) would have done that with at least 2-3 different companies to increase our profit potential instead of going through drama of starting a home based medical billing business from scratch.

As of August 2007 I professionally recommend the following 2 books to anyone that’s looking to start a home based medical billing business. These books put all the aspects of this industry on table, they are very easy to read and the use of current examples make it very simple for the reader to put the information into action:

Hey Liz,

It is very unlikely that you will receive the type of response you are looking for. The topic of marketing a home based medical billing business is not one that can just be expressed in a paragraph or two and this is why the marketing phase of the business is the hardest part for most to deal with.

If you have never marketed anything besides yourself at an interview (and most do not do that correctly) then selling yourself and your company is very, very scary at first.

The skill of marketing and selling is learned over time. As you become more confident in your abilities to make physician see what is wrong with their businesses and what you can do to help them you will become more knowledgeable and that will translate into profits and more business.

So for the benefit of everyone that reads this page I am going to give you all the expert advice on home based medical billing that I have come across while being in this business:

Would you suggest that if you want to start a at home medical billing business, its best to start at a doctor's office to get more experience? I am about to start working on my medical claim and billing course. I have been going back and forth about this decision for about 2 months. I didn't want to just jump in and do the class unless I know I want to do this. I would not mind working at home but I have thought it would be best to work somewhere to get more experience and go from there. How can anyone just start without having any type of experience?

I am really interested in doing medical claims and billing from home, but I have a few questions. First of all, I am a certified Medical Assistant, so I've already taken a medical billing course. Is that enough training to be hired by a company online? Secondly, I made some stupid choices when I was younger and I am now a convicted felon...how hard will it be for me to find a job? Does that matter considering that I will be working from home and not in an office?

Unfortunately, I don't know of any doctor that would turn over their billing to you.

As a part of a biller's compliance plan that is required to detect and prevent fraud and abuse, employers and providers are supposed to check anyone that works for them to see if they have been excluded from submitting claims to the Medicare and Medicaid program and to pre-screen employees as a reasonable step to implement in your compliance plan. Best practices would exclude you as a convicted felon.

I do think that you might get away without disclosing this fact to some extent, but this is something that would likely come back to haunt you and the providers you were to work with. You definitely would not be eligible for errors & omissions insurance, which you would want to have.

I don't think it is realistic to believe you could own and operate a professional and successful billing business or be hired to work in a provider or billing office with your background. I know this is probably not a popular answer, but it's an honest one.

Good luck to you.

Hi Alicia,

is your heart set on the home-based business or are you willing to work as a medical biller as well? I say this because--about 11 years ago, I worked for a medical billing company that did have a convicted felon on the staff--in fact, the employee was convicted of insurance fraud working at an insurance company--I am not sure what was involved during the hiring process, but the employee was there for 5 years; so there are those out there that may give you a chance.

Since 1998, the Office of Inspector General has issued 3rd party billing guidelines that basically address this. Page 12 of 15 of these guidelines say:

>>2. New Employee Policy For all new employees who have discretionary authority to make decisions that may involve compliance with the law or compliance oversight,
billing companies should conduct a reasonable and prudent background investigation, including a reference check, as part of every such employment application. The application should specifically require the applicant to disclose any criminal conviction, as defined by 42 U.S.C. 1320a-7(i), or exclusion action. Pursuant
to the compliance program, billing company policies should prohibit the employment of individuals who have been recently convicted of a criminal offense related to health care or who are listed as debarred, excluded or otherwise ineligible for participation in Federal health care programs. In addition, pending the resolution of any criminal charges or proposed debarment or exclusion, the OIG recommends that
such individuals should be removed from direct responsibility for, or involvement, in any Federal health care program. Similarly, with regard to current employees or independent contractors, if resolution of the matter results in conviction, debarment or exclusion, then the billing company should remove the individual from direct responsibility for or involvement with all Federal health care programs.

Not knowing what you were convicted of makes it hard to say firmly that you couldn't or wouldn't be hired or that you can't do billing from home but I don't think you can reasonably expect to be welcomed into an office easily. Again, good luck to you.

Medical Billing in Salt Lake City, Utah

People are driving is swarms to start a medical billing business from home but the facts are that their is a lot that goes into this. First you are responsible for the doctors income. If you don't collect the money he can lose his practice. You don't need to go to college to be a medical biller but you should know the basics and be willing to do anything and talk to anyone to get a claim paid on.

I just found this cool website that offers over 12 hours of free medical billing training videos. You can watch from the setup of a practice management software, to the actual steps of posting charges and payments including ERA into a system. Also follow along as they send statements and work collections.

Here is the info check out videotrainingpro.com/ and scroll down and click on the Free Medical Billing option. It takes you to a webpage that lists 113 free training videos - click on the one you want, click play and then maximize the screen for full viewing. ~ pretty cool

Those lists that CMS (Medicare) used to maintain on providers that didn't file claims electronically are not kept any longer because it's mandatory for doctors to file claims electronically to Medicare now.

If some company told you they would provide you with a list, it was probably a scam because those lists haven't been updated in years.

The best list will be the one you create. You can, however, use the information from the NPPES database file for updated addresses of providers.

Good luck.

I have been doing medical billing for 15 yrs. I started out working in physicians offices, attending Medicare seminars and learning all I can. I have worked mainly for ophthamologist and cardiologist. I am currently working from home as an A/R specialist with a well established company of 30 yrs. I got tired of the unprofessionalism of some of the co-workers and decided to ask if I could work from home. Thankfully, they agreed and I have been happily working from home for over 2 yrs now.
It's pretty easy work but you have to know what you are doing to be able to do this from home. There is alot to it and you have to do alot of investigational work to resolve the problem. And there are so many different insurances out there and they all have guidelines of their own so it is not always just set in stone across the board. I would suggest you try to find a job as a medical biller/A/R specialist with a physician office and learn all you can and show your employer that you are trustworthy to work from home.It takes dedication and discipline to work successfully from home. I wish you luck....

That is a great Question Raven. I created a blog article to hopefully answer it.

askamedicalbiller.blogspot.com/2009/05/professional-liability-errors-and.html

When I had a billing service I didn't have the Erorr & omission insurance however; I knew what I was doing and I had a lot of "protection" from my contract with the doctor where I placed most all scenarios back on the doctors shoulders including not being responsible if the doctor coded incorrectly since I wasn't getting his medical records on every patient etc.

PS - if you are employed with the billing service you should be covered under their umbrella of insurances. If you are a independent contractor then you would be responsible for any claims brought against you which is where having the insurance would be helpful.

Tammy,

I am a bit confused with your frustration. On your site, you offer the "Certified Medical Billing Professional (CMBP) Designation ". So, you award this credential to your students without them taking an exam? You award the credential for what--them completing the program? If so, that is fine. I have no problem with that....if you wish to award a credential without an exam, then, of course-that is your choice. No-where on my site do you see "national". But if a prospective student or medical biller asks me if the credential is national--I explain to them, because the credential is NOT state specific, they can 'take' their credential with them if they move from state to state.

What is your problem if myself and others offer a credential WITH the student successfully passing an exam and you offering a credential WITHOUT the student taking an exam? I don't understand?

Danalee:

MediSoft is NOT something you need to be concerned about. It is a program that many billers used to utilize for claims processing, but that was before there were a lot of choices. In the past several years, there have become a lot more effective programs available and many MediSoft users are no longer using that program as they have switched to something that better meets their needs either financially or practically.

Have you actually review the Better Business Bureau reports for these companies? That's something you really should do as a matter of research.

Good luck to you.

The good news is that you have not diluded yourself into a work from home "job" but decided to start your own business! The key is NOT to give up. What have you done in terms of marketing so far? Direct mail? Internet? Get your name out there as much as possible! Hand your cards out to your attorney, your accountant, offer a referal incentive! Networking with other billers is good to a point..but you need to look at where the connections to the providers are and also think outside the box. Benefits sell! Tell & Show potential clients that you can offer MORE than just billing.

Your contract and just knowing what you are doing is NOT even remotely good reason for not having Errors & omissions insurance. We live in a time where anyone can sue anyone for anything. What that means is that EVEN if you do EVERYTHING right, in order to defend yourself you will need to be financially ABLE to defend yourself. I don't know about you but most medical billing companies don't have thousands of dollars sitting around just in case you need to hire a lawyer to defend yourself. Again, this doesn't matter who's right or wrong, it costs you money to even have to defend yourself, that's what E/O insurance is for.
