Worth Your Consideration When Making Career Choices: Medical Coding and Billing

Doctors, Medical Office Managers and Hospital Administration Departments Rely on Their Medical Coders and Billers

Successful medical coders and coding consultants pride themselves on being personally involved and connected with each and every client and exceeding clients expectations. Wherever there are doctors you find medical coders, some work in house as employees of the facility, others are independent consultants, some specialize in areas such as billing and collection, others become medical coding instructors, or speakers at conferences and seminars; some work long hours, others work part-time telecommuting from home, others start their own business. There are so many variations, opportunities and specialty fields.


Medical coding professionals can specialize in focus areas such as:
• Family Practice & Internal Medicine
• Ambulatory & General Surgery
• Anesthesia & Pain Management
• Emergency Medicine
• Dermatology 
• Gastroenterology
• Neurology & Neurosurgery
• Oncology & Hematology
• Mental Health
• Podiatry
• Ophthalmology
• Dentistry
• Physical rehab
… to name just a few. There are many more.
