The 7 Best Medical Transcription Companies to Work For

Once you have obtained your medical transcription certification, you are going to need to start looking for employment. There are quite a few companies out there that hire medical transcriptionists. Some are better than others, but it is ultimately up to you to decide who you want to work for.

There are literally hundreds of online companies you can apply to upon becoming a medical transcriptionist. Seven of the best companies are Spheris, Accurate Typing Services, Oracle Transcription, Keystrokes, Tigerfish, Unlimited Transcription, and Transcription Relief Services. Now obviously, the majority of all medical transcription companies are great to work for, but these tend to offer a bit more for the transcriptionists as far as benefits, pay, training, etc.

Spheris is probably one of the best because they hire transcriptionists with little to no experience. The starting pay will depend on skill level, accuracy, speed, experience, etc. They offer a complete benefits package as well. They are also affiliated and very well-known with some of the most elite medical transcription training facilities.

Accurate Typing Services has only one downside, and it is that they require at least 2 years of experience. But, two years really isn’t a long time. You are actually still considered somewhat of a beginner at that point. They offer full time benefits if the employee manages to put in 25 hours per week. The starting pay is also obviously based on experience.

Oracle Transcription is a wonderful company to work for because they only give you the type of accounts they know you can do. If you do not have a lot of experience (at least 3 years are required for this particular company), then you will not be matched with something beyond your skill level. The pay is also legitimate.

Keystrokes also requires at least 3 years experience but offers a full time benefits package, which is not something all of the medical transcription companies offer.

Tigerfish will hire just about anyone who can type a report accurately and quickly. Upon applying, you will have to take a series of typing tests which will be checked for accuracy, grammar, punctuation, and speed. If hired, they will send you an email letting you know when to start.

Unlimited Transcription’s starting pay is around .08 cents per line and usually pays every two weeks. The pay is a little bit higher than some other company’s who start off at .06 to .07 cpl with only two years of experience.

Transcription Relief Services is considered to be one of the best companies to work for because they offer employee benefits such as group medical, dental, and vision coverage, a comprehensive 401K plan, paid time off, holiday incentives, and flexible scheduling. The pay is also based on experience and production.

As stated earlier, the final decision is up to you when it comes to who you choose to work for. There may be a company you would really want to work for but do not get hired for various reasons. When that happens, just do your best to find the next best company and try again. In due time, you are sure to find the right medical transcription company to suit your every need.
