What is an average day like for a Medical Coder?
I am very interested in becoming a medical coder. I am currently in k12 education and prospects are bleak. I would like to know what the real life working day is like for a coder. I know all the online job descriptions, but would like to know what it is really like. Do you use software to search for codes? Do you put together patient records or simply complete the billing and send that off seperately? Do you work closely with other departments? I have read that working in private practice is more profitable than a hospital. Is this true when benefits are taken into account? Also, how does one specialize in a coding field such as cancer?
