A career in Medical Billing & Coding focuses on the business, administrative, and office side of the medical profession.
For some interested in a career in healthcare, front office and administrative work in a healthcare facility or doctor's office is a perfect fit. In addition to completing medical records, insurance submissions and billing, you may be responsible for providing overall office support including greeting patients and scheduling appointments. Some Billing & Coding Specialists may prefer the business side of healthcare or the limited patient interaction of a larger billing company. Some might work in IT environments ranging from totally automated systems using electronic health records to practices that haven't begun filing claims electronically. Working closely with health information technology departments, the focus is on proper coding, medical record security, documentation and billing.
Most Billing & Coding professionals work in physicians' offices, managed healthcare companies and insurance companies. Some are employed by hospitals, medical clinics and third party billing companies. There are also job opportunities in outpatient care centers, medical equipment suppliers, long term care facilities and for state and local government agencies.
