Working From Home
This profession has gotten a lot of attention - much of it bad - as one of the easy work from home business ideas that allow you to earn extra income from home. Many websites present it as one of those "Work From Home Stuffing Envelope" type jobs and imply generous pay.
It really does a disservice to the legitimate insurance billing specialist and our profession. We present the pros and cons of home medical billing jobs, how it’s possible, and what it takes.
It is a legitimate work from home opportunity, but not like a lot of these help wanted ads lead so many to believe. We explain whats involved with home medical billing jobs and how feasible it is.
I’ve spent several years now operating a home based physician billing service - it is a legitimate work from home opportunity. I’ve attempted to share everything I've learned on this site for those considering work from home business ideas such as starting a medical coding or billing business from home.
Starting a Business
The Internet is flush with exaggerated and hyped up promotions to make big money starting a billing business. There’s lots of websites selling “business opportunities” with glowing testimonials and promises of all the money you can make starting a billing business.
They imply generous incomes and top it off with “No Experience Necessary” claims. All you have to do is invest in their overpriced training, software, and reference materials. But they frequently leave some of the most important facts you need to decide if it’s really right for you.
I’ll share my experiences starting and operating a home based billing business to help you determine if its the right choice for you:
We're not trying to sell you a business opportunity or convince you to start a billing business - just to provide you with information to decide if this is right for you - along with helpful and reputable resources to save you time and money getting started.
Starting a medical billing business from home may not be for you. But many now want control of their future and are considering starting a business from home. We've added a section with information and resources to help you start a business from home based on our experiences.
We’ve also added the capability for you to interact and participate in the evolution of this site by providing your stories, experiences, opinions, or asking questions on medical billing subjects - just click on the “Your Questions” button on the left.
When I first started working in billing I didn’t have a clue. Before having a family I worked several years in the insurance business and enjoyed it. My two boys were now in school and I wanted – no I nEEded - to do something fulfilling and earn income.
I had a lot of questions -
My name is Gina. I’m a work at home mom who applied what I learned working 15 years in the insurance business to starting and operating a successful business.
I began working from home part time for a billing service calling insurance companies and checking on unpaid claims. A few years later I had several clients and more than a full time job!
We get asked a lot - "Is Medical Billing a viable work from home business idea?"
Yes - but I won't kid you. It takes a lot of hard work and perseverance. If you have the drive and determination, it is a viable business.
There have been months that my business has generated enough income to rival that of my Engineer Husband – who has 3 College Degrees and a Great Job! I've cut back on my work load this last year to spend more time with my family and maintain this website.
I made my share of mistakes – but the lessons I learned were invaluable. Spending several thousand dollars for training and medical billing software that really wasn't necessary. What I know now I could probably have done this for much less. I’ll share my experiences to hopefully save you the grief and money.
So have a look around and use the information on this website to educate yourself on what’s involved with a billing and coding career or business.
