Medical Billing and Coding

by knapi433 knapi433 (New) New

Hi everyone,

I apologize if this is in the wrong forum or overall doesn't belong, but I am looking for any and all help consisting of this subject.

I am currently 23 years old with both a CNA and Phlebotomy certificate and an Associate's that I do not use. I am extremely interested in Medical Billing and Coding and moving on from the career/jobs that I am limited to with my certificates. I am starting a family and will have my first child in May, so I want to look into something that will provide stability and a better source of income. The only problem is, I cannot find a way to start this program and there is limited information online.

I do not live in an area where a community college offers this, so I am curious if there is anyone who has studied/received a certificate/degree online and has found a job in the field?

Thank you in advance and I hope my questions weren't too all over the place!

I just did a search and found several online possibilities.

Now, to dig deeper and see what feedback is from these possibilities...

And then you must decide which will fill your needs the best.

I am not a coder but in our procedure-driven department we are required to enter codes for the procedures so have a cursory knowledge of codes used in my area.

Good luck to you, searching this out!
