The pharmaceutical industry offers many jobs. Pharmaceutical jobs are rather diversified and range from pharmaceutical sales jobs to nurse and doctor positions and medical billing jobs. Medical billing jobs offer a good means of income to many Americans. Some medical billing and coding is done on jobsites in office settings within a medical facility or within a company away from the medical setting that just employs medical billers. A growing number of medical billing records are handled by people who work from their home. Every time someone in America goes to a doctor there is also billing and coding involved. Everything in this field is now computerized and every procedure or type of visit has a code. The medical biller and coder reads through the information he gets from medical reports, and puts the right code in. Some patient contact is possible but that is mostly done over the phone. This field of employment is growing very fast. Medical billers play an important role in preventing insurance fraud. Because of legal ramifications it is very important that the medical biller works very accurately.

To become involved in medical billing it is important to become very familiar with medical terminology. Some basic knowledge of anatomy is essential. A course in medical billing and coding is absolutely necessary to be able to do the work and will be required by every employer in this field. Proper completion of forms needs to be learned, and it is essential to become computer literate before ever applying for a job in medical billing/coding. Good typing skills are very valuable and employers who hire medical billers to work in an office setting require a speed of at least thirty five words a minute. Speed is less important for beginning medical billers who work from home since payment is made according to the number of claims processed. Beginning medical billers should concentrate especially on accuracy. Only a high school diploma is needed to be able to complete a medical billing program and schooling can take place in a classroom setting or online. Many online colleges and universities offer classes that lead to certification in medical billing.

For many parents who look for a stay-at-home job, medical billing is the solution. Pharmaceutical jobs are respectable jobs with a lot of flexibility. Setting your own hours requires self discipline if you actually want to earn a paycheck. Although starting pay is on the low side, usually between eight and twelve dollars an hour, there are many extra benefits attached to it. No child care expense is probably one of the biggest benefits of this job. Some people are able to keep their aging loved ones at home too because they work from the comfort of their own home. Where you live is completely irrelevant because everything is handled online. That makes it more feasible to live in a house that is further away from civilized world. Better housing becomes cheaper when there is no location issue. Costs for transportation to work are completely eliminated and that means more than not having to buy gas. For many families where one of the parents is a medical biller at home it means that a second vehicle with extra insurance payments becomes unnecessary. An expensive office wardrobe is not needed. Working on your career in PJ’s is a dream of many. Experienced medical billers who have proven that they can combine accuracy with speed can earn two hundred dollars or more a day.



Many medical billers take their laptop on vacations and are able to make some money wherever in the world they are.
