Medical Billing Starter Program


Get started for only $599

Medical Claims Processors and Consultants are making a place in the industry for themselves. Why pay $10,000 and up for products not nearly as complete as ours when you can get into this industry for a lot less money?

Learn from experts, Cyndee and Larry Weston who have owned and operated their own billing service and they have worked with successful medical billers for many years! You'll learn all their shortcuts and secrets for running a successful business, and you'll get a solid foundation of knowledge from their vast experience.

Healthcare providers of all types are being overwhelmed by medical claims paperwork and inexperience at collecting insurance money. As an independent medical claims processor or consultant, you'll be relieving doctors of their biggest headache by reducing their overhead, eliminating the need for additional billing clerks and speeding up their payments on claims. Quite frankly, you can do a better job of collecting their money by solely focusing their revenue cycle management, whereas the people in doctors offices have a multitude of interruptions and daily tasks that prevent them from being as effective as you can.

Within a short time of receiving our Medical Billing Starter Program, you'll start to build a solid foundation of knowledge that will enable you to start and run your successful medical billing business.

Our comprehensive online course, along with our online coding courses, toolkits and training manuals will provide you with the information you need to start your medical billing business. You'll quickly learn how medical billing works and you'll learn about insurance carriers, filing claims, introductory coding, HIPAA, OIG Compliance, marketing to doctors and much more! And if you need help, we'll be here to provide you with the technical and marketing support you need. The support we provide stems from our experience of owning and operating our billing service for more than a decade.

Best of all, the price of our program cannot be duplicated. As with any opportunity, there are opportunists who may tell you this is an easy-to-do business and that it is not rocket-science. The truth is, there is a lot to learn and it isn't as easy as some people may lead you to believe. You'll have to work at learning medical billing and you'll have to continue learning to stay abreast of changes within the industry.

Others are charging hundreds or even thousands more for information that is not nearly as complete as our training program. But for only $599, we are offering you today's best opportunity at the lowest possible price.

The ability to save doctors a tremendous amount of money and time, while speeding up payments on claims is an attractive alternative to many healthcare providers.


Medical billing is a great industry. Doctors are realizing that outsourcing their billing is a better, more cost effecient alternative than doing the billing in-house. This business is affordable to start up and is a low-overhead return on investment.


According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment prospects for medical insurance billers and health information technicians in the medical billing industry are projected to grow 22 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. In 2012, the Median pay was $34,160. With treatment and medical testing improvements, the general population is living longer -- and with more people insured under the Affordable Care Act, the growth and demand for qualified medical billers will only increase.


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) has created an opportunity for the healthcare industry to move from paper claims transactions to electronic transactions using one national standard format, creating an opportunity for medical billers to work with non-compliant providers to help them achieve compliancy.

Providers must also meet Privacy and Security standards concerning protected health information. Many healthcare providers are meeting Privacy standards, however, there are still many that are still not. There is a tremendous opportunity for billers who are prepared to assist doctors and other healthcare providers meet HIPAA requirements.


Additionally, the Office of Inspector General has published guidelines for fraud and abuse detection and prevention that some doctor's offices still have not complied with even though Medicare Advantage conditions participation in that program contingent upon doctors having a compliance plan in place. With our toolkits, you can help them comply with those requirements, creating an additional opportunity for your billing business.

Meeting standards and regulations while continuing the education that is necessary to get claims paid requires cost-effective measures. Many healthcare providers are not adequately prepared to meet the requirements. Overhead is a big problem for smaller healthcare providers and staffing experienced billers is a constant battle. Additionally, our nation is spending more than ever on healthcare. The bottom line is that the need for professional, experienced medical claims processors and consultants is there.

Tools Of The Trade

In order to provide the services required of small healthcare providers, medical billers must have the right tools and education. Billers must comply ethically, professionally and legally with state and federal regulations.

You will receive the most comprehensive training tools available in the industry. Our up to date, training will quickly teach you how to start your own Medical Billing Service and help you comply as well as helping you provide much needed compliance to your clients.


We're not just sellers of information, we're doers! Our training program stems not only from basic Medical Billing concepts, but more importantly, from our real world experience and knowledge in the Medical Claims Industry.

We'll lead you through the necessary steps to reach the success you have longed to achieve When we say we offer comprehensive training, we mean comprehensive! Absolutely nothing is left to the imagination.

We offer Complete Support and Commitment To Your Success

Regardless of your knowledge of insurance, accounting, the medical field or computers, our training program will teach you what you need to know to succeed. Plus, as an added assurance for you, we offer you the support of experienced reliable professionals.

A word from some of our Satisfied Customers



"A few months ago, I took a home-study course that I paid nearly $600 for. When I finished the course, I realized I wasn't even close to having the knowledge I needed to go out and market medical billing. Recently, I purchased the AMBA Starter program.

About the owners



Cyndee and Larry Weston began operating a billing service from their home in December, 1989. Since then, they have led the small biller industry in providing quality information for many specialty companies in the industry as well as providing successful billing and consulting services for decades.

Prior to owning their billing business, Cyndee Weston paid health insurance claims for commercial insurance. She has been named a member of Who's Who in Executives and Business Professionals twice. Larry Weston previously co-owned a successful electronics technology and repair service business.

Their billing business far exceeded their expectations within the first few months and Mr. Weston was able to sell out to his partner so he could devote his expertise and efforts toward their billing company. Combined, the Weston's have more than 30 years of experience in medical billing, insurance, information systems technology and business management.

Even today the Weston's continue their tradition of success through the development of industry related support products designed to enhance services provided by billing companies and to accelerate the educational process for those just getting started.

In September of 1998, the Weston's founded the American Medical Billing Association (AMBA) to provide assistance, support, education, information and networking opportunities for professional medical billers. AMBA's membership base has grown steadily since then and continues to reach out to new and experienced billers everyday.

AMBA has a member portal providing support information and links to numerous small business and medical related websites. The  AMBA's email and Facebook groups provide answers to your questions and provide opportunities to network with other billers as well as providing you with changes and news about the industry. Also, members are provided with several discounts on industry related products and services. AMBA's extensive growth was unexpected but clearly demonstrates satisfaction and support of the association from members.

Aggressive leadership skills taught and promoted by the Weston's ensures AMBA seminars and webinars are booked to capacity each month. The intensive training they provide is highly respected and their method of delivery makes learning a pleasant experience for all who attend.

For years, the Weston's have led the way in setting industry standards by utilizing all the resources available in their quest to provide the most current technology and information. It's no secret they are once again pioneering technology through the use of the internet in promoting medical billing. Their innovative ideas are often imitated but their products and services are never duplicated!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you provide doctor accounts?

A: We are not an employment agency, nor do we provide you with accounts. Any company that implies they will provide you with provider accounts, frankly speaking, is probably a scam. Most companies that claim this are simply providing you with an outdated list of healthcare providers. Medicare has, in the past, provided a list of doctors not filing claims electronically, however, many of those lists are no longer available or are outdated as a result of the implementation of HIPAA Transaction Standards.


Q: What can I expect to earn as a medical biller?

A: The answer to this question depends solely upon you, your willingness to learn, and continue to learn and then putting what you've learned to work for you. You are only limited by your own desire, the amount of effort you put into it and by how hard or how little you work at being successful. Your education and marketing and sales efforts obviously play a certain role in how much you will earn. No one provider will have the exact same needs. Filing clean claims is only one small part of final outcome in collecting insurance claims.

The results one person achieves is not representative of what others will achieve since each person's contribution of effort, resources and time are never the same. Some people never make anything because they don't work at it or are not committed to owning their own business and don't work at it like others will. You are only limited by your own self-imposed limitations - we provide you with the right tools, it's up to you to do the rest.


Q: How soon will I start to make money?

A: Realistically, there are many tasks you will have to accomplish before you are even ready to start marketing, like setting up your company, deciding on a name, understanding, learning and deciding on the services you can or will offer, developing business cards, letterhead, brochures, service agreements and more. You'll have to begin your education and training and continue to build on your knowledge continuously. Also, you'll have to learn how to work with your billing software and its capabilities in order to sell the benefits of using it. You have to be ready to sell, know what you're selling, be ready to answer questions then be prepared to provide ethical and professional services.

How soon you complete those tasks will determine when you are ready to start marketing. Typically, it can take several months before a person is ready to start marketing. There's a lot to learn and you have to build your compliance manuals. From there, it could be anywhere from another one month to several months before you are able to contract with a client, depending on how much effort you put into marketing and prospecting for clients. As for actual numbers, that will depend on your market area and what other billers are doing.


Q: Is medical billing software included in the Medical Billing Starter Program?

A: Our starter program does include MedLook Biller Medical Billing Software.


Q: Are you a clearinghouse or do you provide a clearinghouse connection?

A: We are not a clearinghouse. Billers use a clearinghouse for two reasons. First, the clearinghouse will check your claims for certain errors before claims are sent to carriers. Also, the clearinghouse reformats the data you send to them before sending it to the carriers in the required standard transaction format. Because changes must be made regularly to meet a carrier's companion guide requirements, it may be cost prohibitive to try and file directly with most carriers. Use of a clearinghouse allows you more flexibility to send transactions to more carriers. Clearinhouses provide a plethora of services you may indeed find beneficial to your business.


Q: Will I receive any printed materials or will your products be sent to me on CD only?

A: We send our products to you on CD. We take pride in being able to keep our prices low by utilizing technology that allows us to provide quality information through electronic means. Our manual can be printed and stored on your computer for easy access. You'll also have our CD as a back up should you ever need to re-install any of our products. Should you misplace your CD, we will replace it.


Q: How long will it take for my products to arrive?

A: You'll receive your products in a priority mail shipment within 3 to 5 days from the date of purchase. The only exception will be if you order an additional product we do not normally stock in-house. In that case, your product will be shipped to you within about a week.


Q: Will I receive a certification after studying your Medical Billing Starter Program?

A: Our starter program does not provide you with a certification. Those companies that promote certification by studying a few hours and taking a 30 minute exam are selling a lot of nothing. Certification for this industry requires many hours of study and isn't something that can be achieved in a couple of days.


Q: Do I need to be Certified?

A: Although there are no federal or state mandates requiring certification, we believe the right certification promotes credibility among physicians. AMBA, the American Medical Billing Association, has spent several years developing a national certification exam for billers. Learn more about becoming certified in Medical Billing


Q: How can I obtain demos of medical billing software products?

A: MedLook Demo



We are authorized reseller's of the above program.


Q: Can you provide me with references?

A: Absolutely! We'd be very happy to provide you with references including businesses and customers. You can start by calling the Better Business Bureau of Oklahoma City at 405 239-6081. Our phone number is 580 369-2700. Or, you can obtain an online report on our company through the BBB's website


Q: How long has your company been in business?

A: We have been in business since Dec. 1989. Having been in business for such a long time allows us to anticipate many of your questions and concerns related to this industry. Our experience will certainly play a role in your success!
