About this site

MB-Guide.org was created with the aim of providing the most useful free career and education advice for medical billing and coding. We have also recently begun to provide information on medical assisting and medical transcription.

We provide information on not only how to find work and what type of education you should consider, but on various real-world problems and tasks you'd come across when working in any of the above fields.

If you have any questions or feedback then we'd like to hear from you! Get in touch through this form.
