In this difficult economy, there aren’t many people who are bold enough to think—willingly—about a career change; most of us are simply happy to have work, in whatever field we can get it. But if you are thinking about changing jobs, you could come up with much worse ideas than medical coding.
Actually, medical coding might be one of the best fields to consider during these perilous times. After all, people always need healthcare, no matter what the economy looks like. And medical coding is a crucial part of our American healthcare system; it is necessary for the insurance billing process, and therefore virtually all hospitals and medical practices, as well as long-term care facilities, include a medical coding staff, whether it’s just one person or a large team. And, given the rate at which both technology and the insurance field continue to change, to say nothing of America’s aging population, jobs in the medical coding field are growing more numerous all the time.
