I have recently completed a program in medical coding and I am looking for work in this field. My training includes both the ICD and CPT manuals. What complicates my job search is that, due to personal circumstances, I want to work at home. My elderly mother has a variety of health problems and I am responsible for taking care of her. Working at home would allow me to do this, yet still relax and still do good competent work.

I have the same problem. So far my job search has required the coder to be certified or if not cert. at least with 1-2 yrs. medical office experience. So now I'm in search of med. office, receptionist whatever I can find. It has been tough!

G Roden - You are doing what everyone is talking about. It's better to start out entry-level, then leverage yourself into a coding position later on.
