PORTAL OFFERS YOU AN ADVANTAGE
I thought it was really sweet you couldn't find this position anywhere else. Since these are trying times, there’s been a general lack of jobs. Having first access to a job position through the ENTITY network is nice. It’s great to have a first look at jobs you can't find anywhere else.

I love the fact that I get to work with female entrepreneurs and work flexible hours from home at the same time. The ENTITY job announcements are great for me to access resources and opportunities that I wouldn’t have come across otherwise.

What is Medical Billing & Coding?
Medical billing and coding is a great career for those interested in the medical field but don't want to spend years in higher education. Their work is vital to ensure costs are being kept down, medical mistakes are minimized, and patients' medical histories are properly organized and saved. It has become a sought-after job in the healthcare industry due to its numerous benefits such as being able to complete training in as little as a year, career advancement opportunities, and in some cases, the ability to work from home.
The opportunities in this field are everywhere. You could work at a clinician's office or hospital, in an office for an insurance company, and some agencies are even hiring billing technicians for remote positions. No matter what your ideal work environment is, medical billing and coding has a place for you.
The average starting salary for a medical billing and coding specialist is $45,000 annually
The demand for medical billing and coding specialists is expected to rise by 8% from 2019-2029
