Is medical coding and billing a good career for a single mom ?

Post by Guest on Thu Jun 30, 2011 3:07 am

My sister has been working in the medical coding and billing industry for the past 4 years (she's a single mom as well).

A career here is both challenging and interesting but since it deals with the administrative side of the healthcare industry, you need relevant experience and credentials like the AAPC's CPC certificate ( )

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical records and health information technicians earn between $24,290 and $39,490 a year. It is believed that certified medical coders earn around $7000 more per year than non-certified coders.

I think medical coding and billing is an excellent profession for single moms because it offers the flexibility to telecommute, which allows them to stay at home with their children and enjoy a stable and challenging career as well.

You do need prior clinical experience and/or medical billing and coding training to qualify for these jobs. Certification is not necessary, but certainly desired by employers these days.
