I have been in the medical coding field for about 15 years.I am not certified either,but am working on it. My speciality is ER coding. Why can't I code from home? Just because we are not certified doesn't mean we can't do the job...

It entirely depends on the hospital/physician office/remote contracting firm. Some of them won't care. Others insist on employees holding a credential. I wouldn't be surprised if it helps facilities during JCAHO certification/inspection.

I know it's a bad comparison (but all I could come up with on short notice LOL), but would you go to a doctor who never bothered to get his MD? Radiology techs need a certification, as do Pharmacy techs, dental hygienists, etc.

Btw, I worked with a woman in the Seattle area who wasn't credentialed either, also coded ER's/E&M's. The hospital typically insisted that coders obtain at least an RHIT/RHIA within the first year of employment. If they also went on to get a CCS, they were in a higher pay grade.

This coder had earned an AS in Health Information Technology--eligible to sit for the RHIT--but had a) never learned to code outpatient surgeries or inpatients and b) had severe panic disorder, especially during testing. In the 20 years since she earned her degree, she had sat for the exam EIGHT (8) TIMES.

But at least she tried, and that's what saved her position at the hospital. She made the effort.

In the last year that I worked with her, she became determined to get at least one credential, so she pushed management to let her cross-train. I heard that she finally sat for the CCS-P 2 years ago and passed it, and is now preparing for her RHIT again.

A credential is a funny thing. Some who don't have it are very good coders. Some who do have one are awful. It's up to the employer. But having one eliminates a lot of the uncertainty in the employer's eyes.

Where were you performing your coding work? I would think that experience alone would qualify you...but then again, I don't live in NJ lol. You really might consider travel work, becoming an independent contractor, or a remote coding firm. They are definitely out there.

I worked in a hospital coding ER records which required the E&M. I was fortunate enough that my coding experience alone got me in the door, not my credentials.

I was laid off, so now its hard to get my foot in the door at a hospital or for that matter,any coding position. They all want CPC,RHIT,RHIA or CCS not experience, I guess they don't want to accept the liability. No I am not credentialed, YET, but I am studying for it as we speak.....

I have a small child so I can't travel - do you know any companies that offer remote coding. I tried one and you had to do a training in LA for 3 weeks for training.

I worked in a large (600 MD's) medical faculty group associated with a large hospital.

Care Communications

Definitely focus on the positives for your resume...and apply for positions even if their requirements don't match your credentials/experience. If at all possible, include a cover letter/written statement accentuating your work history and that you are eager to learn other specialties. It can't hurt!

Btw, the above results were from Googling 'remote coder' and 'remote coding jobs'.

Good luck!

Hello all, I am glad to find this forum. I am a Health Information Management Major, I need help from an RHIA already in the field. Could you or anyone tell me is it worth going to school 4 years for this career? I am on the fence and I am searching for others who already graduated to tell me their experience. Pleas help me, I don't want to get out of school only to make $10.00 an hour. I see that the money makers are in management and directors. I don't want to graduate only for them to say I need experience because I already went through that with medical assisting. Please anyone enlighten me on the graduate experience. Thank you for your help.

I don't mean to sound mean-spirited, so please take this as a "constructive observation," when I say that before you submit a post or send a Letter of Inquiry or a resume, to always proof-read what you've written! Misspelling of words and/or poor grammar are a "red flag" to most prospective employers, especially in jobs which require a high level of attention-to-detail.

I mean this as a general statement, and not directed towards any particular person.

could you tell what pharmaceutical companies to consider; I've always found that aspect of coding fascinating.Its seemingly difficult to come by that type of coding in comparison with physician and outpatient coding.

I graduated from an AHIMA accredited RHIT program. However, I have been out of the field for a few years and have very little concrete coding experience. I would love to get back out there and get into coding. My local hospital has five coding positions open, the problem is, they require certification and two years experience. How do I get experience?

My employer may have openings for remote work. I have been in their employ as of March of this year, beginning as a per diem coder, then transitioning to full-time status in June.

The initial coding test is brutal, but they are looking for coders who don't require hand-holding. I am not sure which credentials they require, but all of my coworkers are RHIT or CCS. To my knowledge, the coding does NOT entail professional fee.

CDMP training would likely be a plus.

If interested, please contact me at woman_skornd@yahoo.com, NOT via messages on this board.

Thank you.

I currently work at home as a remote coder. I don't like the job at all. It pays well and has great benefits, but the work they send to do in one day is a lot more than 8 hours of work. It is a salaried position, so if you work 12 hours in one day, you don't get paid for it.

I have friends that work for hospitals coding at home. Hospitals treat their employees a lot better than these remote coding companies.

I still work for them, so I won't post the name of the organization. I need a job (can't afford to be fired).

I have credentials through AHIMA and an AAS in HIT with 13 years coding experience.

I have applied with a major medical system (they have several hospitals throughout the metroplex), but they aren't sending coders home to work yet. It is coming soon, though. I think eventually, all of these hospitals with be set up to let their coders work at home and there won't be as much need for all of these remote coding companies.

Thanks, Amy! I know there's got to be a better job out there than this one. I loved my last job! They are no longer in business. It wasn't a work-at-home job, but it was a fantastic job!! They treated us so well and we got paid by the chart.

My company is very strict about hiring credentialed, experienced coders. We have to have people that know what they are doing and we have to keep the clients (hospitals) happy. They won't hire anyone without experience because they need people that are ready to perform the coding with a high level of accuracy (especially working at home without supervision). We are audited every other week and if we don't maintain a high accuracy rate, they let you go. I know that they have let people go that make too many mistakes because it can cause them to lose clients. When people are hired on, they go through a probationary period and all of their work is checked. After they reach a certain level of accuaracy, they will let them work on their own. I know I was told that there have been some that could never reach that level, and were let go. Coding is tough because there is so much you have to know and it changes all of the time.

When I first finished college, it was easy to find work (I was hired the day after graduation). I am finding that's not the case anymore. I am almost to the point that I would gladly start driving to a hospital again instead of doing this job.
