Are you tired of dead end jobs and ready to switch gears and find an exciting new career? If you want to be part of an important industry like the healthcare industry and put your organizational skills to work, perhaps you should consider a career in medical coding and reimbursement?
Here are some of the benefits to a health claims specialist career:
- Earn your degree quickly!
At Elmira Business Institute, we offer a 16-month Associate Degree program specifically designed to train individuals in medical coding and reimbursement. After completing the program, students will qualify to sit for the AAPC Medical Coding Certification exam.
- Positive job outlook!
There’s never been a better time to choose a healthcare career. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “Employment of medical records and health information technicians is expected to increase by 22% growth by 2022, faster than the average for all occupations.”
- No more graveyard shifts!
A lot of positions in the healthcare industry come complete with unpredictable hours, dreaded late-night shifts, and many exhausting hours spent on your feet. A medical biller and coder position is a full-time desk job with regular daytime business hours.
- There’s always something new to learn!
The healthcare industry is a fast-paced and hi-tech field, making it important to keep up your computer skills. As a medical biller, you will spend a good deal of time on the computer and as practices change in the insurance billing industry, you will be challenged to learn new skills and stay active on the job.
- Make a difference!
The healthcare industry helps millions of people every day with their health and wellness needs. Medical billers are an essential part of this industry. As a medical biller, you will be responsible for submitting insurance claims and helping to ensure that medical bills get paid. Being a part of this industry is something to be proud of.
