I agree with you on that. I'm attending Everest Universiyt online. I have been with Everest since July 2010 and plan to graduate April 2013. But I'm trying to find a job in Medical Billing and Coding to help me learn this better. If I could just get an internship it would help me out alot.

I am a student at Everest University. I have been with Everest University online since July 2010 and plan to graduate in April 2013. I am looking for an internship to help me get some experience in learning Medical Billing and Coding. I have never worked in a medical office or anything before so I'm looking for a new career change. You can't get any experience if no one will give you the chance to get some. I have taken the course medical terminology, medical insurance billing, medical finance and insurance,anatomy and phys. of body system , diseases of the human body,and now taking medical office and procedures

I would skip the internship and try to find an entry level HIM job, something to help you get your foot in the door and gain experience. Something in medical records, account follow up, insurance verification, etc. Most employers tend to hire from within, so if you are already an employee, if there is an opening in coding, you will find out about it first and give you an advantage.

Where should I start looking at for the entry level HIM jobs.

I would suggest looking at your local hospital. Most hospitals HR pages have a seperate search for Health Information Management jobs.

@hoapres, coding does not pay great to start out. Most entry level coders (who have 1-2 years of coding experience) start out around $12-15 an hour, once you gain more experience, the pay goes up to around $16-20 an hour and increases with more experience and credentials, to around $21-25. Very skilled coders can make $26-45 an hour.

Considering that most of us took a short 8 month certificate program, that looks like pretty good pay to me.

hoapres in San Jose, California said: @valentine, going to a local public funded community college for a $12 an hour job might make sense. Spending $20K+ at a for profit school does not make much sense at all. $45 an hour even for the best medical coder seems a little bit hard to believe.

Who in the world is paying $20,000 for a billing/coding program???? That is insane, and if that is what people are paying, then no, $12 an hour is going to take forever to pay that back. But, that is how things are. You have to start at the bottom and that is what entry level pays.

$45 is definitely not the norm, but I included it in the range, because it is possible. Coding consultants, especially now with the RAC audits, are in demand and are paid accordingly.

But getting paid $25-35 is not that uncommon, that is what I am paid.

okay, indeed won't seem to let me post the link, but if you go to himjobs dot com and click on hotjobs,

Some of these do require a degree, but most of them, just need the right experience.

Really, Guest in SF that's what you say to someone asking for anyone's help and who also had the initiative to finish her or his education. Shame on you!

It you do not have anything nice to say then do not say anything at all. If you had a problem then that is you. Do not put anyone else down for going back to get An education.

I am just beginning everest and I'm paying $20,000 the billers making $12 an hour are the ones not willing to pay the price to obtain a certificate. If you do your research certified medical billers earn an average of 20% more salary than non certifiedso those of us with certification will be making an average $47,000 per year as opposed to your $27,000..

If you're open to some leg work, put a list together of medical offices in your area and spend either a morning or afternoon calling each one. Explain that you're looking for an internship and provide your availability. To give yourself an edge, call when you think the office will be very busy. Why? Because the person who answers the phone will be thinking they really need the help. Hope this helps & good luck.
