The Big List Of Remote Jobs With Benefits

The Big List Of Remote Jobs With Benefits

One of the big concerns many people have about working at home is whether or not they get employee benefits. So many work at home options don’t offer them. That’s because companies often hire work at home people as independent contractors or freelancers, rather than as employees. Fortunately, there are also a lot of companies that have remote jobs with benefits.

Not every position with a company on this list will have employee benefits. Part time positions may or may not have any, depending on the company. Your best bet for a remote job with benefits is a full time position. Your search for benefits will be much more difficult if you want to work part time. That’s true with outside the home jobs too.

Companies that allow regular employees to work at home will often include benefits such as health insurance, vacation, sick days, 401(k) and so forth. These companies have come to recognize the advantages of having employees who work at home. Some companies are entirely or almost entirely virtual, so the work at home employees aren’t the odd ones out in the company.

While I have done my best to be accurate with this list, you will need to review individual job postings and check with the company to see if the work at home job you are considering actually includes benefits.


Temporary employment agencies and recruiting agencies will have much more than just work at home jobs available. Check with the agencies in your area to see who has remote positions available and whether they offer remote jobs with benefits to the employees they supply to other companies.


Adecco is an employment agency, and some of their jobs are home based. Possible virtual positions include customer service and sales jobs. It’s not easy to find work at home jobs by searching their site, but I did see some locations.

Depending on the job, you may be able to get benefits from Adecco after you’ve been placed in a position. Some positions are direct hire, using Adecco to find employees, and then I would expect the benefits to depend on the employer.


CyberCoders is a recruiting agency, and some of the positions can be done remotely. Benefits will depend on the company looking for employees, but many will have them available. The main focus of the site is on technology and IT, but there are also jobs in engineering, finance, and healthcare.

Companies With Multiple Work At Home Job Titles

You can’t put all companies into just one category with the kinds of jobs they offer. The possibilities are too broad. These companies offer a variety of remote jobs with benefits.


ADP (Automatic Data Processing, Inc.) offers a variety of jobs that can be done primarily from home. Many have location requirements and may require that you come into a local office at least once a week. Jobs that may allow you to work at home seem easy to find as the form allows you to select whether or not you work at a home office.

Many positions have to do with sales, instructional design, and project development. What’s available will vary tremendously, of course.

Important Factors You Should Consider In A Remote Job

Important Factors You Should Consider In A Remote Job

When you want to find a remote job, it’s easy to forget the other things you should consider. There are a lot of things that go into making a job the right match. The ability to work at home should not be the only thing you think about. Here are some other factors you should consider in a remote job.


How much do you need to earn from your job? You won’t want to stick with a job if it doesn’t pay enough for you to live on. There are times when you will need to accept a job at a lower salary than you would like, but for the long run, salary is important.

Employee or Contractor?

Many companies prefer to hire remote workers as independent contractors rather than employees. This has tax implications for you. Your employer does not withhold taxes if you are an independent contractor.


What kind of benefits does the company offer? If the job is part time, there may be few to none. A full time remote job, on the other hand, may offer benefits. You may be able to get health insurance, paid vacation, 401k and more. Some even offer gym memberships.

I have also seen companies offer remote workers a budget for renting a coworking space. This gives them a more professional space where they can interact with other people.

Do You Ever Go To The Office?

Not all remote jobs are done entirely away from the office. Some require you to go to the office in person. How often you go in varies quite a bit from employer to employer. Some will want to see you every week, while others may only need your presence once a year or so.

How Strict Are Work Hours?

Just because you have a remote job doesn’t mean you can choose your work hours. Many employers want their remote workers to work some standard hours. This makes collaboration easier. It’s very hard to plan meetings or discuss a project with coworkers if you all work your own hours.

How Do You Keep In Contact?

There are a lot of ways to keep in contact with remote workers. Slack is a popular option for keeping in contact. It allows teams to chat, share files, and more. Apps such as Dropbox and Trello are also popular choices. It helps if you are familiar with these.

Company Culture

You aren’t in the office, but company culture may still have an impact on you. Consider the number of hours you’re expected to work. What time of day are you required to work? Is this flexible or not? How much interaction will you have on a regular basis with coworkers? Will you work more as an individual or as part of a team?

Even when you’re remote, you will find that a small company is very different to work for than a huge one. Small companies may be more flexible, not just in the times they expect you to be available, but in considering new ideas. A bigger company, on the other hand, may offer more security.

Growth Opportunities

Just because you aren’t in an office doesn’t mean you aren’t interested in career growth. Find out what opportunities may be available to you. This includes job training, help with college tuition fees and professional certifications. Even if you don’t want to go into management someday, any help your employer gives to keep your skills up to date will be important.

Home Office Requirements

Depending on the kind of remote job you get, you may have to provide your own equipment. You will need a reasonably recent computer for most jobs. Your internet connection may need to be wired rather than wireless. If you are going to be on the phone a lot, they may require that you have an office with a door. You may need a noise cancelling telephone headset.

Some employers will give you a budget to buy equipment to suit their needs, while others may ship equipment to you, rather than depending on you to provide your own.

Work-Life Balance

One of the challenges many remote employees face is keeping a good work-life balance. It’s easy to spend too much time at work when your work is at home with you.

If a company expects a lot of on call time or overtime, it may be very difficult to maintain that work-life balance. Look for jobs that understand that when you close your home office door, your work day is over – unless you don’t mind the lack of balance.

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 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 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 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.


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 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.


Humana hires various work at home health care professionals, including medical coders. Some positions may require limited travel. Medical coding jobs require a CPC, CCS, RHIA, or RHIT.

Maxim Health Information Services

Maxim helps many well known organizations fill medical coding positions. These positions may be long term, short term or permanent. Full time positions include benefits.


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.

These are just some of the companies out there that hire people for remote medical coding jobs. You can find more listings on the Home With The Kids Online Job Board.

Work At Home, Remote, Telecommute? Do They Mean The Same Thing?

When you want a job that you can do at home, there are several keywords you can consider to help you in your search. They can all be used to mean a job you do at home, but sometimes they mean something else. Let’s take a look at some of these terms. Most often they mean that you will be working at home, but other times may imply that you will be working elsewhere at least some of the time.

Work At Home

The classic search term for work at home jobs, yet one of the most dangerous. You can pretty much assume that a “work at home” job is to be done primarily at home, but some jobs will involve a bit of travel, probably local.

The danger with searching for “work at home” is that too many scams use it as a keyword. Lots of legitimate jobs use it as well, so don’t rule it out entirely. Be careful.

You will probably also say that you work at home if you run your own business from your home. Then again, you might be better off talking more about what your business has to offer, and less about where you work.


Telecommuting has been around for a long time. Telecommuting jobs aren’t always done entirely at home – they may require you to work in the office some days as well. This term isn’t as popular as it once was, but you will still see it around.

If you have a current employer and want to work at home, telecommuting is probably what you would suggest. You and your employer may both benefit from a telecommuting arrangement if your job is suitable.

Work From Home

“Work at home” and “work from home” are very similar, and are often identical. Sometimes the term “work from home” means you may not be at home as much. You might do some work at your home, then go to another site to do other parts of your job.

Home Based

Much like a work from home job, a home based job may mean that you use your home as a base from which you work, but you may work other places at certain times. Other times, it is simply a job you do from home.


A virtual job is generally done online, or at least at home. There’s an implication that the job is done over the internet, but virtual jobs can involve phone work as well.

You may be familiar with the term “virtual assistant,” but that’s far from the only job that is call “virtual.” Some companies are entirely virtual, which is wonderful when you want to work for them from home.

Not all jobs that say they’re virtual are done from home. There are virtual assistant companies where employees work in the company’s office and are virtual assistants for various clients. They aren’t at home at all. That’s an exception, but it happens.


Now here’s one of the tricky terms. Most of the time when I see a job listed as being remote, it’s a job you do at home. Other times it means you work at client sites, in another country, or in an office that isn’t the main office of the company. I’ve seen it used all those ways.

Read the job description carefully to ensure you know which way the potential employer means it. If it still isn’t clear, make your expectations known in your cover letter and clarify things during your interview if you get one.


An online job may be much like a virtual job, but not always. As a job searching keyword, it may find you some jobs, but it will often refer only to that the job is listed on an online job board.


A freelance or contract job means that you are self employed and working for someone else under a contract. While these jobs are often done at home, sometimes the contract will require that you work on site. A freelancer is responsible for paying his or her income taxes quarterly, as there’s no withholding by the employer.

Which Terms To Use When Looking For A Work At Home Job?

You can use just about any of these terms if you want to find a job you can do at home. Any of them will show up on job boards. With all job searches, even if you aren’t trying to work at home, be aware of the possibility of a scam. Pay close attention to any travel requirements as well. If you don’t want to travel at all, it’s a quick way to rule out many jobs.

Don’t use them as your only search term. What kind of a job are you qualified for? What do you want to do? Consider possible job titles and the skills you have to offer, and use them in combination with your preferred terms.

Don’t use “freelance” unless you are looking for that kind of work. There’s nothing wrong with freelance work, and a lot right with it, but it’s not what everyone wants to do.

It’s not uncommon for work at home jobs to consider you an independent contractor rather than an employee. Make sure you know which they consider you to be. You should read up on the legal differences between being an independent contractor and an employee. Be aware of the tax implications if you want to do freelance or contract work. It can really mess up your finances to be hit by a big tax bill when tax time comes around if you haven’t been paying quarterly.
