We sell emr software and medical billing software to doctors offices so are in constant contact with offices nationwide. We’ve been hearing that doctor patients are calling and cancelling appointments if the patient has a high deductible or copayment. That said, i think the medicaldental field is still less resistant to the economy that most others.
From an article in Crain’s New York Business (3/29/10): “Sectors to Watch as Jobs Rebound”:
“…jobs in the health and education sector constitute a growing share of private employment…”
“In fact, education and health is one of only three employment sectors that we project will be larger in 2013 than they were in 2008….”
With healthcare jobs on the rise there is hope knowing there are jobs available on the market for those looking for a place of employment in the healthcare field and also because it gives one an assurance of job security. This makes me confident of knowing I can find a job after I graduate from Allen School Online as a medical biller and coder where I can use the knowledge and skills I have acquired from medical billing and coding classes to process medical claims efficiently in order to help healthcare providers receive the proper reimbursements.
Some healthcare jobs even allow people to work from home. With child care costs so high, it is helpful that medical billing is a program that can be done without being in a physical office.
