Why Take Medical Coding Classes?

A medical coding career is a good fit for those interested in working with numbers, puzzles, challenges, continual learning, and working in an office. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for medical records and health information personal was $15.55 an hour in 2010. Medical coders are employed in organizations, such as

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians’ or doctors’ offices

Health employers need people to apply numeric codes to every service preformed. These codes are called Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Currently, the entire U.S. uses the ICD-9 standard, which employers require. With the population aging, all health services will continue to grow, including medical coders.
