      Hi Dee, if you think you can work from home, your best bet is to start your
      own business. It's not likely a practice would hire an employee to work from
      home as it's really not a benefit to the practice. Starting your own
      business, like any will require startup funds, but the opportunity is
      better, like you said there are lay-offs, many doctors are moving towards an
      outsourced solution which makes it a great time to market if you own your
      own business. Just something to think about.

      Well, I wish every the best of luck when having to look for a job. I've
      been a medical biller for over 6 years and been out of work for 8 mo. I
      live at the lend of the line between Oregon and Washington, so I am able to
      look for medical billing positions in both states. I have had 2 interviews
      in 8 mo. There are so many lay offs out here that there are just too many
      medical billers to chose from I guess. I am lucky to find 1 job a week for
      medical billing. Usually I have to apply for some other position like
      clerical or receptionist just because it has verifying benefit or some

      I wouldn't mind doing this from home since I do have the experience - but
      everywhere I search they are either not hiring or someone is asking for

      Thanks for listening.
