Medical Coding Job Location
Most medical coders work in offices away from the public's eye, usually tucked away somewhere
in the back. Others report to freestanding medical coding and billing service facilities away from the doctor's
office or hospital. Some even work from their own home office, either as employees with permission from their
employer, i.e. telecommute, or as independent consultants using their own medical billing and coding programs and
practice management software on a computer they own.
Courtesy and confidentiality must be maintained throughout this job to truly succeed! Incoming calls from
patients with questions regarding a bill are directed to the medical biller's office. The way the medical
billing office communicates with them can make or break the business. They often have to deal with
patient's criticism, confusion, or anger. Patients can quickly become frustrated when it comes to dealing with
health care providers and medical bills over the phone. Medical billers should always maintain a professional
composure and NEVER take these calls personal.
