i am in the mortgage industry and i need something recession proof. i need to know if an online course is acceptable and reputable or is a regular school better? also i wanted to know if medical billers are really in high demand as all the websites have you believing? What is the expected salary? any info anyone can provide is appreciatedI am looking into getting into medical billing/coding, something in medical field? i have many questions?
they are not in high demand, all the schools want you to believe they are though. I am a medical assistant and it took almost 2 years to find a job. I worked it for a year then I had to quit due to personal reasons and now i have been without a job for 2 years. I have been looking for the past 6 months and never find ant job openings. Also you can get a job in medical billing with out schooling for it. My mom did. She had never did anything medical and got a job in the billing dept at a clinic. Learned it all on the job.
An online course through a local technical school is your best choice, it will be cheaper and just as good. they can help you get a job too, well at least they try to!I am looking into getting into medical billing/coding, something in medical field? i have many questions?
Online schools are so-so if you already have a degree. However you wont make much more then 12-14 an hour. I work in a medical company.
If you want to be in the medical field I'd sugguest going for something like radiology tech or surgical tech. those make a bit more money and seem to be more exciting.
they are in high demand and it is a stable job that requires you to use your skills check out PureMedicalJobs.com for more
