A Note of Caution: Online Job Ads
Various job ads lure unsuspecting job searchers every day. Many people are desperate for work
and job offers abound... but don't fall for medical coding from home job ad scams!
When looking for medical coding jobs you might come across job ads for work from home positions. When checking
further into these positions, you might find that these posts are actually not jobs, but ads trying to sell you
information on how to become a medical coder, or to buy booklets that tell you, (so ironic!) that if
you call medical offices, clinics, hospitals, or other types of health care facilities they might hire you to do
their coding and billing.
On the news, a man came to Florida and advertised he had jobs at his DME company. Anyone wishing to apply had to
go to his website, apply for the job, and pay $25 upfront for a background check.
The problem: The DME company didn't exist! There were NO jobs. Over 100
people fell for this scam. Our advice: Anyone looking for a medical coding position should thoroughly check the
website prior to filling out online applications. Be careful!!!
Temporary work companies (temp agencies) often do a background check on applicants for medical coding and billing
jobs, but they don't ask that YOU pay for it. And remember: Medicaid requires all applicants to pay for a
background check, including billing agents, but Medicaid is reliable.
