ICD-10 Coding Specialist Jobs Are Available

ICD-10 Coding Specialist jobs are available in every healthcare setting, small and large. They work in hospitals, physician offices, and nursing and residential care facilities. An aging population that needs more medical tests, treatments, and procedures means more claims submitted to insurance companies for reimbursement and therefore increased demand for health information professionals. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts an increase of over 29,000 medical records and health information jobs through 2024. That's a projected increase of 15%—much faster than average for all occupations! Employers appreciate health information professionals who can organize and manage patient information and ensure its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper and electronic systems.

In particular demand are coding professionals who are familiar with the transition requirements needed to implement the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding systems as required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These professionals are essential in helping healthcare organizations submit the most accurate and detailed reimbursement claims to insurance companies.
