Koder frequently asked questions
KODE is a fully remote environment. To be successful you’ll need your own computer, a high-speed internet connection, and a cell phone for two-factor authentication. For efficiency, we also suggest multiple monitors and any reference materials you may need.
KODE provides a search based encoder within the platform that allows you to seamlessly submit your work. We encourage you to bring any supplemental reference materials that may help you to be successful.
No, the KODE model is unique in that you get paid per record—meaning you are in control of your earnings. The rate per medical record varies mainly based on chart type and complexity. Earnings range from $2 to over $30 per chart.
Our assessments will require you to code charts representing real-life scenarios. Our team carefully reviews each assessment submission and a pass or fail rating will be assigned based on multiple criteria including qualification expectations of our Klients. In order to protect the integrity of our assessments, we are unable to share your specific results.
Koders on the platform are independent contractors. You can work as much or as little as you want—we will send you a 1099 form at the end of the year if you qualify based on your earnings.
