Why Start a Medical Coding Career?

Medical Coders are In Demand. According to the BLS, employment is expected to increase by 15 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Opportunity is waiting!

Benefit from Career Stability. Due to an aging population, there will be greater demand for medical tests and treatments, and an increase in insurance claims for reimbursement. What does this mean for medical coders? According to the BLS, this will lead to an increased need for medical coders to organize and manage this data in all areas of the health care industry.

Medical Coders Play a Vital Role in a Variety of Health Care Settings. Medical coders are needed in every type of health care facility. This includes:

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians’ Offices
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Facilities
