Work At Home Medical Billing Services

Really?? If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But to be fair, it might be possible to offer medical billing work at home services in certain situations. For example, the person who already has some experience with medical billing and is available to work and see clients at least a few hours a day Monday through Thursday (some medical providers take Fridays off) might be able to get a few doctors and make some extra money doing medical claims processing at home part time. Or the person who wants to work at home part time who plans to use their earnings more as a supplement to the total household income, and who can convince some doctors to use them, may find it viable. But stumbling blocks exist; read on to see what they are.

The challenges of providing work at home medical billing services part time are numerous. For example: Let's assume you have a full time job working 9 to 5. First, those hours pose a problem, for the following reasons:

  1. Most doctors also work 9 to 5. When will you be able to meet with these prospective clients?
  2. If you are lucky enough to get your first doctor, how will you do the most important part of your job--following up on unpaid or underpaid insurance claims-- since most insurance companies are only available form 8 to 5 EST?

  3. What will happen when your doctors or their patients need to reach you?
  4. When will you handle problems with your medical billing software or clearinghouse?
  5. When will your tackle issues with your medical claims clearinghouse?

OK, suppose you have the ability to work flexible hours, or nights/weekends, and can free up time from 9 to 5. Another major factor is that it can be extremely difficult to get a doctor to hand over his medical billing to you. Just getting an appointment to make the case why you should be trusted to do their billing is not easy; then you will have just a few minutes to convince them that even though you may have no experience in the field as of yet, you can do the job.

Patience and persistence is key: we know of successful medical billing companies that have taken a year or more to get their first client and far more people who have invested in a medical opportunity but never got a single doctor.

So is it possible to do work at home medical billing part time? Yes, it's certainly possible, and if you can secure a few doctors as clients, it can be a good choice. But unlike the hyped up claims you may have heard, working at medical billing part time will not yield you loads of money--working part time will bring you a nice supplemental income which you will probably not be able to live on alone.

Even if you are able to commit to building your business full time, the odds of you making huge money from your medical billing opportunity are rather slim. Yes, it is possible to make a good living working full time providing work at home medical billing services, but you need to do your homework. Take your time to really study this medical billing opportunity or any other home business opportunity.
