Anybody tried or heard of medical records online (working from home) for $250.00 to start the program?

You type the medical records from the doctors in a timely matter. If you have heard of this, what is the web site? Thank you for any info.

  • Unfortunately, most of those are scams. You should NEVER have to pay for a "Job" Most Business however do require a start up cost. If you're looking to work from home but aren't quite sure what to look out for, our Team has come up with free training videos on what to look out for. Visit:

  • It's called a medical transcriptionist and you have to go to school to do that.

  • As medical offices move to electronic records, medical transcription and medical coding and billing, will no longer be necessary

  • That doesn't sound legit I wouldn't do it unless I checked it out thoroughly through better business bureau but you can go on google

  • It's medical transcription. My mother used to do it a while back and the doctors she worked for went to an automated system that phased the actual transcriptionists out. That's a lot of money to dish out so I would definitely do you research!!!

  • No job charges you to start with them. If they do, it's a scam. Stay away from this one, it's a scam.

  • Sounds like a scam, even though Medical Transcription is growing and the responabilities are getting bigger, it doe snot cost money to "start up" overnight.

    You need to go to school or training. You can find more infomration on schools on HOMECAREERSUCCESS.COM
