"This is a great job, take any learning opportunity to get in."
Certified Coding Specialist (CCS):
Volunteer or take any entry level job you can to get experience in this field. I am blessed to have a manager that is fantastic about training her employees. Not all places will do this. She started me out on Emergency room charts and observation patients. Then she taught me Ambulatory Surgery charts. It took me 4 years to get certified but then she taught me inpatients as well. It's the best job I've ever had.

Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) in Blue Earth:
Great place to work! Great pay, awesome manager support, flexible scheduling, paid training. Love the incentive plan for working above and beyond productivity requirements! Sometimes there is a lack of work and there's unexpected downtime once in a while, but you adjust your schedule accordingly and get paid for the downtime. Awesome place to work and I have no reason to look employment elsewhere. I'm completely satisfied with Lexicode!
