Question by corey: Is anyone a health claims examiner/medical biller? I am thinking of going to school for this.?
Is it a good job to have? What are the pros and cons?
Thanks for your input!

There are actually not too many jobs for the medical biller/ coder (or medical assistant) despite what private $ $ career schools say. My cousin has been working in medical billing for several years now and has been looking for another job for a few years to no avail and her job may be in jeopardy since many places are outsourcing overseas. If still really wanting to get training, please only consider the county vo-tech school or community college (perhaps non credit course) and not the private schools as long as it’s accredited within the industry.
Please steer clear of online, for profit schools such as penn foster, stratford career, university of phoenix, strayer: http://www.uopsucks.com
