What about medical coding?

You may be considering a role as a medical billing and coding specialist. With enough education and experience you can potentially excel wearing both hats.

However, healthcare revenue cycle management takes both medical billing and medical coding—and the jobs are different.

There are separate career opportunities down both tracks, especially in regard to entry-level positions in larger institutions.

If you consider yourself more introverted (and not as enthusiastic about working with patients!) you may be a better fit for a dedicated medical coding program.

What certifications will I be eligible for?
