Medical coding and billing is a fast growing field that will need more trained medical coders in the future. For this reason many people young and old are scrambling to get into this highly lucrative field. The biggest problem is, once you finish your degree you still need at least 2 years coding experience and to pass the AAPC CPC exam to get yourself certified. Many schools do not prepare you to take this medical coding certification. For this reason many people are unable to qualify for the higher paying medical coding jobs because they have trouble passing the CPC exam. Not only that, depending on what field you specialize in and where you work there are other exams you may have to specialize in.
