RE: [MedicalBillers] Re: Medical Billing Advocate Course
- 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.
