It’s no surprise that manufacturing helped move Michigan out of the Great Recession. But did you know that the sector is expected to contribute less than 15 percent toward new jobs? 1 If you’re looking for industries with growth and opportunity, you might want to look at healthcare. Medical Billing and Coding careers in Michigan are among the hot healthcare careers, according to a study conducted by the Detroit Free Press.2
Medical Billing and Coding professionals organize and manage patient health information that is stored on databases. They know medical terminology, treatment and law and they also know thousands of codes. Every procedure and treatment has a code that needs to be submitted to insurance companies so the patient gets coverage and the provider gets paid.
Did you ever consider a career in healthcare, but thought you’d have to deal with blood and give injections? That’s not the case, at all! There are many support roles in the medical field that will allow you to become an important member of a healthcare team. You’ll get to interact with patients and professionals, but you won’t have to “treat” patients. At Career Quest Learning Centers, you could train to work in medical billing & coding in as little as eight months.
