Medical Transcription Companies That Offer Remote Jobs

Medical Transcription Companies That Offer Remote Jobs

Once you have medical transcription training, you need a job. If you’re reading this, odds are that you want a remote job, something you can do from home. While medical transcription jobs aren’t as common as they used to be, they are still out there. You simply have to find the medical transcription companies that offer remote jobs.

The school you attended, if you’re a recent graduate, may help you find a job. If it has been a while or you’re now an experienced transcriptionist looking for a different position, you have to do more of your own searching.

I’ve found a number of companies that hire medical transcriptionist for remote jobs. Many require experience, but others consider training through an AHDI certified program such as the one through Career Step to be acceptable.

You can generally assume that all of these jobs will require a high speed internet connection and a reasonably recent computer. Many will require a Windows operating system. Some employers will provide you with your foot pedal, headset and other gear. Others may expect you to provide your own.

I do not know which of these companies are hiring right now or if they will be hiring soon. Check back regularly with any companies that interest you if they aren’t hiring when you look. I think medical transcription is harder to get into than when I did it, but still possible.

The Big Medical Transcription Companies

These are the two biggest medical transcription companies out there, so far as I know. There are a lot of smaller companies, which I will list next. Many smaller companies have been merged with or bought out by these two companies.

M*Modal

Back when I was a medical transcriptionist, I worked for a company called Medquist. They merged with M*Modal several years ago, but I didn’t work there at the time. I can’t speak as to how things have changed since I left, years before the merge, but Medquist was a decent employer for a new medical transcriptionist.

They still hire people who are new to medical transcription but have successfully completed acceptable training. Otherwise, you must have at least one year of experience as a medical transcriptionist.

They pay per 65 character line, and payday is every other Friday.

When I worked for Medquist, they were very good at accommodating my schedule. They did, however, expect me to stick to the agreed upon schedule. This is still true of them. They cannot guarantee that they can accommodate all scheduling requests, but they try.

Nuance Transcription Services

Nuance is one of the big companies out there. You may be familiar with their speech recognition program, Dragon. Even with that tool, they hire medical transcriptionists to check the dictations doctors send in, to ensure that they are transcribed and formatted completely accurately.

You must have experience or acceptable training. How much experience may depend upon the position you apply for. Benefits may be available for full time employees. Schedules are flexible.

Other Medical Transcription Companies

Eight Crossings

Applicants for jobs with Eight Crossings must have at least two years of multi specialty experience. If you have graduated from an approved medical transcription training program, you may be considered as well.

You must be able to process 1000 lines per day that you’re scheduled. Your schedule is flexible.

InfraWare

InfraWare provides a dictation plaform for medical professionals. They also offer transcription services bundled with their technology. Transcriptionists who want to work with InfraWare clients must have at least two years of experience in medical transcription. Some positions require at least five years of experience.

Med-Scribe

Med-Scribe has been around since 1992. Positions are often part time and may be second shift.

Three years of medical transcription experience is required. Report types typically include History and Physicals, Operative Notes, Consults, Discharge & Summaries as well as Diagnostics. They prefer that you have ChartNet experience, but it is not required.

Preferred Transcriptions

Applicants for medical transcription positions must have at least two years of experience. You must have your own equipment, including antivirus software. A minimum of 20 hours a week is required.

SoftScript

Must have appropriate training and at least three years medical transcription experience. CMT preferred. Transcription to include acute care, clinic, radiology and/or pathology.

Also hires editors and QA for medical dictation.

SpectraMedi

Full and part time medical transcriptionist positions may be available and experience is required. Prefers transcriptionists with either a certificate or certification.

SpectraMedi also hired QA editors and medical billers. Once again, experience is required.

StenTel

StenTel is another company that has doctors use voice recognition software for their transcriptions, and then uses medical transcriptionists to ensure that it’s accurate.

Medical transcription opportunities with StenTel are generally for independent contractors, not employees. Their application asks about the software you’re familiar with as well as the rates you expect. If you don’t have experience, I wouldn’t assume that you can get top rates for your work. They also want to know if you have a foot pedal, as well as basic facts about your computer.

Ubiqus

Ubiqus hires only U.S. based, English speaking transcriptionists. They strongly prefer at least 1-5 years of transcription experience or professional medical transcription training.

Deadlines can be very strict. Pay is every two weeks. Transcriptionist positions are for independent contractors – you will not be considered an employee. Positions are part time and they can work with your schedule.

United Transcription

United Transcription hires U.S. based medical transcriptionists for straight transcription. You must have at least three years of experience and excellent quality scores. This is NOT open to entry level candidates.

This position is best for those who are familiar with ESL dictation.

There are, of course, many other medical transcription companies out there. Some require you to work in the office, but others will offer remote jobs. Take a look around, and see what you can find if none of these work out.

11 Companies That Offer Remote Medical Coding Jobs

Companies That Offer Remote Medical Coding Jobs

Remote medical coding is a popular choice for people who want to work at home. Once you’ve finished your online medical coding training, it’s time to start looking for a job. The hard part is finding companies that offer such jobs.

Most companies that have remote medical coding jobs require at least 2-3 years of experience. This means that no matter how well your training went, you probably won’t find a remote or online position right away.

This is actually a good thing, as experience teaches you things you won’t have learned in your training. Working in an office with more experienced people around you will help you gain the experience you need to do the job successfully at home. Some companies will even let you transition to a remote position once you’ve proven your accuracy.

Get the credentials needed for better medical coding positions as soon as you can. A CCS, CCP or other credential can open up opportunities to you.

Here are some companies that offer remote medical coding jobs. Most will require experience and are fairly strict about it.

Accentus

Accentus is a part of Nuance Health, a company that offers healthcare IT solutions such as speech recognition and tools for more accurate medical coding. Accentus offers jobs in both Canada and the United States. Coders must have a CCS or CCS-P and/or CPC or CPC-H, RHIT and RHIA as well as 3-5 years of coding experience.

Acusis

Acusis hires medical transcriptionists and medical coders. Each requires 3+ years of relevant experience. Medical coding positions require appropriate AHIMA or AAPC certifications. Most positions are home based, although some may be available in an office.

Altegra Health

Altegra Health hires for a variety of remote medical coding jobs. They typically require about three years of experience plus appropriate certification, but this may vary by position. Not all positions are home based.

Aviacode

Aviacode offers contract remote medical coding jobs. Applicants must have appropriate certification through either AAPC or AHIMA as well as at least two years of experience, depending on the positions.

Excela/Lexicode

Lexicode is now a part of Excela, a global provider of transaction processing solutions and enterprise information management. Some positions require only 1-2 years of coding experience. Appropriate certifications such as CPC, CCS and so forth are required.

HCA Healthcare

HCA Healthcare offers a range of work from home opportunities. It’s not just for medical coders. However, as that’s the focus here, note that they expect the usual credentials and at least two years experience for medical coding positions.

Himagine

Himagine Solutions hires medical coders for a variety of specialties, such as inpatient, outpatient, HCC, emergency, and others. Positions typically require a RHIA, RHIT and /or CCS as well as at least three years of experience.

nThrive hires medical coders and clinical documentation improvement specialists for remote positions. These positions require certifications such as RHIA or RHIT or CCS, CCA or similar, and prefers certifications relevant to your specialty. Two years of recent, hands on medical coding experience is required.

United Health Group

United Health Group has a range of telecommuting positions available, not just medical coding. Optum is the part of the company that handles medical coding. Appropriate AHIMA or AAPC certifications are required, along with 3+ years of coding experience.

Amazon Is Adding 5000 New Work At Home Jobs This Year

Amazon sent out a news release that they are planning to add 5000 new part time work at home jobs in their Virtual Customer Service program over the next year. They’ve hired people to work at home for the past five years, and this is a big expansion of that program.

One of the great parts about Amazon’s part time jobs is that they come with benefits if you work at least 20 hours a week. This includes paying 95% of college tuition costs for in-demand fields, even if they aren’t fields you would use at Amazon. Such employees also get the usual life, vision and dental coverage, plus funding toward health coverage. That’s a pretty wonderful deal for a part time job, since many don’t offer benefits to part timers.

Amazon has a focus on hiring military veterans and spouses, and of course the jobs are great for college students and stay at home moms and dads.

To keep an eye out for work at home positions at amazon, visit their jobs page and find the “Work at Home” link in the hourly positions section. The jobs currently available will come up. Sometimes they need people who speak a second language, such as German, Italian or Japanese. Some jobs are geared specifically toward college students in certain states. Others may be seasonal.

The jobs I see as of this writing require that you live in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin or Virginia. I assume that requirement will continue, but it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye out in other states in case they expand it. The news release has a quote from an employee who moved from California to Washington state, neither of which are listed in the ads I checked, so I hope there will be broader openings.

Amazon’s current usual pay rate for customer service jobs is $10 an hour. Expect things to be busy… very busy, in fact, from November through mid-January, as that’s their peak season. You probably know how much people shop at that time of year, so be prepared for a lot of work at that time of year.
