The demand for healthcare services grows greater every year, and the ever-increasing number of patients, insurance claims and hospital admissions means more work for Medical Claims and Billing Specialists, particularly if you have a goal of starting a small business.

The idea of being your own boss can be very empowering, but as with any new business endeavor, there are things you must consider before striking out on your own.

Professional training or experience in medical coding and billing is the first step to creating a home-based business. The second is gathering information and establishing a plan.

Learn what is involved in starting a medical billing home business along with the realities of pitfalls and profits. Castro Valley Adult and Career Education is offering a new two-day workshop to  provide valuable resources and tips on how to get started in setting up and running a small home-based business.

Course content will also touch on such topics as selecting a specialty area to concentrate your medical coding and billing business on, the importance of marketing, three main ways to charge your clients, and more!

Each class will host an “Ask the Expert” session featuring former students who have successfully launched their own business. This is a great opportunity to hear how they started their own business, and ask questions accordingly.

The Start Your Own Medical Billing & Coding Business Workshop is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Saturdays of July 21 and 28,  for only $59 – a bargain investment in your future!

If you are not sure which medical career path to take, consider attending the free Medical and Computer Information Night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 21,  in Room 16.
