Medical Billing Service Owners

Work Environment

Most medical billers work in the comfort of their own home offices. Although they don't have any direct supervision, clients regularly contact them to check on the status of an insurance payment. They spend much of their time on the phone and on the computer. In some cases, billers may visit a client's office to collect forms; some billers, however, simply exchange information electronically. Billers who offer consulting services spend some time in doctors' offices working closely with billing staff members. The hours per week will depend on the number of clients. Serving only a few clients requires approximately 20 hours a week; any more than three clients requires 40 hours or more a week. It is not necessary to keep regular business hours, since so much work is done at the computer using electronic systems. Medical billers can set their own schedules, working evenings and weekends if they prefer.
