Why Choose a Career in Medical Coding?

Medical coders play an integral role in today’s healthcare industry by analyzing medical records and data for the purpose of billing and insurance reimbursement. The specialized skill set medical coders possess makes them an indispensible asset in doctors’ offices, clinics, hospitals, insurance companies and medical billing agencies. The future of the medical coding field is very promising: employment is expected to grow 22 percent by 2022, much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
