A day in the life of a medical coder 2

Busy Monday with Bleu the Medical Coder. A discussion of what happens during the course of a typical day. These are my experiences that I share with you to give you an idea of what it is like. Not all experiences are typical for every medical coder. I hope by sharing this you’ll find the humor or gain a connection with understanding the field. Filmed over break.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and wonderful personality! I've been considering making the switch from my non-medical job to coding for about two years. My main concern is the job outlook. Will a certificate be enough or will a HIM degree be required? If it's not too much trouble…can you please share your thoughts? Thank you! 😊

    My question for tomorrow’s Q&A is: Do most coder use the encoder on the job? If so, does it make coding easier?

    OMG how do you get any coding actually done and with deadlines with all those small impromptu meeting with everyone?!

    Thank you so much! This helps me a lot! Studying has been difficult! Especially on coding time.

    Thank you for the day-to-day view of coding. I’ve been at my job for almost a year, brand new, and almost all on my own! It’s been tough. Hopefully will get that A off my CPC-A next month. I’m a former transcriptionist so when I see the documentation nowadays I just throw my hands up in the air. 🤪

    Im glad I came across your video. I already have an Associate in Medical Billing and Coding. I have to get certified in the field. I didnt find that out until after I graduated from college. What site is the best to get certified through? And will this be a national.

    I finished Coding class in April. I got a job offer it wasn't for coding. The company told me NOBODY hire's NEW coders w/o experience! I was disappointed. They basically hired me to put me where they need. My class mate got hired else where as a MA make 15.00. What's the starting rate for a Certified Coder?

    🌹🍬Hi Bleu. Thanks again for sending this as a part 2 in “A Day in the Life”. Very interesting. I see one has to set up a good work system and discipline routine.Question: When you say meeting your quota of 90, is this per day? Per month? Is it total for all the specialty clinics you do together?Question: Is there a general policy or legal directive regarding turnaround time between services rendered/documented and code completion on it?Question: How would you say is a Coder evaluated from their supervisor, what criteria do they use or look for when evaluating?Question: I have heard you mention running reports and totals. Are there any software programs, i.e. maybe Excel that we should become familiar with?As always Bleu, thank you! You are refreshing and inspiring to watch. FYI, just started school with AHIMA…super excited. 😀🌹
