The AAPC is a preferable source of medical job postings. Alongside medical coding, the company collects employment openings for practice managers, billing and auditing positions. Medical employers use the site to post and advertise for remote coding jobs. Candidates must be conversant with the content of medical records on top of their clinical knowledge, states AAPC.
It is important for remote coding candidates to be well-versed in medical topics such as anatomy, pharmacology, physiology and clinical conditions. Potential applicants can render an application through the Maxim Health Information Services or AAPC websites and choose to apply for short-term, long-term or permanent job positions depending upon current openings.
Maxim Health Information Services focuses on previous experience, strengths and career preferences when assigning candidates to coding companies. Some of the benefits accrued by this job may include a 401(k) plan, competitive pay, direct deposit, bonuses and travel benefits as well as health care coverage. Successful candidates are expected to be available to work from a remote site, not within a medical facility, notes Maxim Health Information Services.Learn more about Job Search
