im looking into going to school for medical billing and coding on online....can someone explain to me what do they do everyday because i have heard diff storiesWhat is medical billing and coding?
Do NOT pay for medical billing training online or anywhere else! You can get BETTER training from most local community colleges!
Also, it doesn't pay well. It's pretty much clerical work. And forget those stories about starting your own business. It's VERY tough to get started. If a doctor or medical practice contracts with you to do their billing, they are basically putting their entire income in your hands. Why would they do that with a newcomer? You pretty much need to get a few years under your belt and get to know some doctors personally to have a chance to get started on your own.
