Fast Growing and In-Demand

Medical Billing and Coding (or Health Information) is an exciting, fast-growing, in-demand allied health field that can allow you to enter the medical field without providing direct patient care. Medical billers and coders (also referred to as health information specialists, medical billing and coding specialists, or medical information specialists) work to ensure the quality and accuracy of medical records and billing accounts.
