A Brand New Era for Medical Billers

The economy is never static and new jobs are constantly created including those that sprang up with the inception of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). With the new US President Obama at the helm with plans to reform health care and health insurance regulations to stimulate the economy many predict that more jobs in various medical fields and different health care industries will spring up from coast to coast.

Careers Related to Medical Billing

Interestingly, an American Hospital Association (AHA) survey in 2007-2008 showed that about 18% of medical billing and coding positions remain unfilled due to a lack of qualified candidates. Imagine!!!! As the national unemployment rate rose in those years many medical billing positions remained unfilled due to the lack of qualified applicants. And the chaveat of this was that for every percentage-point increase in the unemployment rate there were 1.1 million more people are uninsured. As in any career, a successful future means a firm commitment to continuing education and self improvement; both are very important to remain employabke, competitive and reach higher goals.
