I passed my exam late December, and have been submitting applications in my area, but so far no luck. Is there anyone from my area that knows of a company looking for an ambitious hire?

Please email me if you know of any company!

I am a recent graduate of Medical Coding and am looking for a position in that field. My problem is I do not have much experience and my Certification is CPC-A. Does anyone know of any companies that are willing to hire someone with little experience? I am also considering relocating from my current location if that is what it takes to find work.

congrats on passing the CPC it is a tough test. most employers are not hiring coders without experience, so your options are to find a job elsewhere in HIM, such as medical records, billing, data entry or even front desk. Gain some medical experience, become more familiar with ICD 9, CPT and reimbursement and then leverage for a coding job.

The other option is, AAPC now has the remove your A program where you code like 800 cases to give you real world coding experience, it is a new program and I am not sure if employers will hire you after it or not, but it is cheaper than relocating.

go to www.indeed.com There are a lot of compnies willing to hire a CPC-A, but you may need to be willing to relocate. I live in California and no one hires a CPC-A here. My problem is I can't relocate do to family concerns. Anyway, good luck to you all
