  • i took an online class and paid about $1000 for it. it's been about 3-4 years since i took it so i would have to go look at my paperwork to get the name of the program. i'm doing medical coding / billing now from home.

    however, let me just give you a heads up - even if you take the class, it's very hard to get potiental clients to let you do it from home. the only reason i am doing it from home is because my mom's boyfriend's brother is a doctor and i do medical insurance billing / coding for him and he's fixing to throw alot more business my way from some of his friends.

  • I do freelance accounting and bookkeeping. One of my clients is a podiatrist, and the office manager asked me to help with billing. After a few weeks, she offered to put the software on my laptop. I go in the office once a week to pick up and drop off paperwork.

    I have never taken a class; with the software, it is really simple.
