You can begin medical billing at home once you have your equipment and clientele. You may be able to work a few hours a day or a full eight-hour day depending on the needs of your clients. Your hours will mainly be contingent upon your clients’ deadline for job completions.
You may be handling receipt and processing of payments. If so, you will need a telephone for receiving billing inquiries, and a post office box for receiving payments that come in mail.
