Question by Isabella’s Mommy Expecting #2: What steps do I need to take to do medical billing from home?
I put this question here because I figured some SAHM’s might be able to help me. Plus, I get the best answers from my fellow Mommies usually. I also put this question in Careers and Employment.
Are there classes I need to take first or is there a training course? How long is it and can I take the classes from home? Approximately how much money per hour will I make doing medical billing from home? I asked this question the other day about working from home…
So if you have any other ideas for working from home I’d really appreciate your help. Thank you.

What is medical billing? What does the career involve?
Medical billing is an integral part of the health care industry. Without it, doctors would have a hard time getting paid for their services. Medical billing specialists submit claims to insurance companies to facilitate payments for services provided to patients. It is a complete process that starts when the patient visits a doctor’s office.
Some medical billing services include:
* Gathering patient information and billing detail from physicians
* Submitting details to insurance companies for payment
* Applying knowledge of various billing procedures, fee schedules, collection methods and claims form completion
* Processing responses from health insurance companies
* Preparing invoices and contacting patients about past-due bills
