Top Five Benefits of Working Remotely as a Medical Coder

  • No commute. This is an easy one. Having your commute go from 20 miles to 20 feet is a pretty great feeling! When it happens to be a day when weather is particularly bad that feeling comes with knowing you don’t have to step foot outside your front door is amazing. Not to mention the money you save from not paying for gas and lunches.
  • No distractions. This can be a double edged sword of sorts. When you work in the hustle and bustle of an office there can be distractions everywhere. You have work mates around you talking, phones calls, that co-worker that is always showing you cat videos! When you work at home as a medical coder you control the environment thus enabling you to maximize efficiency.
  • Flexibility. As a work at home medical coder you will enjoy freedom unknown in most career fields. In many cases your medical coding position may give you complete control of your own schedule allowing you to work from early in the morning to very late at night and everywhere in between! In most cases you will want to try to keep yourself to some semblance of a schedule, but it is nice when those unexpected things come up you can leave to take care of them and your work will be waiting for you when you return.
  • Travel. For most of us it is a dream to be able to travel someday. This was likely one of the things that attracted us to a career in medical coding. That is the beautiful thing about working remotely. You really only need two things, your laptop and a decent internet connection and you’re ready to work! This is not only great because you minimize money lost for those expensive planned vacations by getting some work in during down time at your hotel. This also means that at a moment’s notice you are ready for those unexpected adventures that come up such as that last minute opportunity to take your go on a weekend get away with your friends.
  • Quality Time. All of us want to spend as much time with our loved ones as we can. It’s the little things we miss out on that get us. Just seeing or kids off to school or making them lunch. Enjoying spending time with our spouses all day instead of just a few hours before bed. Hearing about the funny things that happened in the day we missed. It really is a neat thing being there to share in your families’ day instead of hearing about it later.
