Thanks Sylvia! So does that mean for the test I follow the ICD10 guidelines that I've been following all along?
Summer, I think it is remote but the email didn't specify. I applied on their website which said the training was on-site until you were ready to be released to remote. So my plan is, depending on the rate of pay they offer, is to go to Texas, where their office is located, do the training then work from home once released, Right now I just want to get a feel for HCC coding and what it entails, test for the company, then make further decisions based on what's offered. I also posted my resume on Glassdoor and Careerbuilder and had a recruiter call me just this last Friday, we are in the beginning steps with that process, just had an informal interview about my work experience, what I'm looking for, etc., and he said he's going to start looking for me so that's another place you could start if you're having trouble in your search. I work for a company that has a medical coding division, nThrive (formerly Precyse) and they're not CPC-A friendly at all, which was a surprise to me because when I first hired with them it was with the intent to transfer to their coding division and the recruiter even made it seem like that was something that many MT's did at that company. When I tried to apply and transfer I got a curt letter stating that I didn't have the experience or credential (CPC without the A) that was necessary. That stung a bit, you'd think my being an employee in good standing with a long medical background would count but, oh well. Got my first rejection out of the way, lol! To be honest, these companies have client-specific requirements, so that's understandable. I'm just going to keep on keeping on, lol! Newbies ARE getting jobs, though, so I'm not losing hope. The first job is the hardest, after that we're on Easy Street lol :)
