Medical Billing/Coding Opportunities in Canada

Discussion in 'Resources for Finding a Canadian Job' started by Tronn82, Apr 14, 2011.

  1. Hello. I am a US citizen in the process of getting a National Certification in Advanced Medical Billing/Coding. I should be done by Winter 2011. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Medical Billing/Coding Opportunities in Canada. How does Canada's Medical Billing differ from America's? Would I have to retake any classes or exams? Thanks so much for any insight! :)
     
  2. I don't have any first hand experience.

    However I believe Everest College in Ontario offers courses in this area. Maybe you could check out their web site to see how similar the courese/material are?

    Also, I do think there are some pretty big differences between Canada and the US in this area. Keep in mind that Canada has a socialized health care system which means that the type of interaction and level of interaction between health care providers, patients and insurance companies is very different. However logically it seems that you should still be able to use at least some of what you've learned here.
     
  3. Thanks for looking out, Scylla! I will give them a call and visit their website to see what further information I can obtain about this. I appreciate ya! :)
     
  4. Most medical offices will have a medical assistant that would do the billing in the office and you are working with Ohip so it is easier than in the states. I don't know if you are working as a medical biller right now and have clients but if you do you could always continue doing that once you come here.
