Why should you know medical billing and coding as the Medical Office Manager?
This question is asked by probably every student that’s ever enrolled in our program. The reason you should know medical billing and coding is you are going to manage medical billers and coders. Whenever you’re managing a group of people it is you’ll get more respect, and it’s always good to know what their jobs functions are, at least a cursory knowledge of it.

What is the Future of Medical Office Management?
– Need for Qualified Medical Office Managers & Increase in Healthcare Access
With medical office management, all health care fields right now are growing. And this is due to the increase in health care access due to recent legislation by our government requiring people to have health insurance. Also, baby boomers like myself are getting older and our accessing healthcare facilities more and more, needing medical care. So the more people accessing the system means the more qualified healthcare people overall we need, whether it be administrative or hands on clinical.
– Projected Growth Rate: 23%
In medical office management there’s a twenty three percent projected increase in jobs over the next decade. That statistic comes from our government, and I feel the statistic personally is low. I think the growth will be much higher than 23%, even though 23% is rocking good, Okay! I feel that it’s going to be more in the 30 to 35% because there is a huge need for qualified medical office managers.
– Average Salary: $35,000 – $88,000
Salaries range between 35 thousand and 88 thousand, having said that I want to make it very clear because of the differences between 360training Meditec is that we tell you the truth, okay.
