Los Angeles Medical Billing And Coding Jobs Overview
Medical billers and coders keep medical practices, clinics, and other healthcare providers in business by making sure bills are correctly coded and then paid. Medical billing and coding is an exact science. For example, did you know medical treatment after being bitten by a pig (once) is vastly different than a trip to the doctor for being struck by a pig during a second encounter? Professionals with medical billing and coding jobs know the two diagnoses are vastly different to an insurance company. So much so that if the wrong code (W55.41XA vs. w55.42XD) is entered on a medical bill, the patient won't be covered, and the medical practice will not be paid.
Medical billing and coding jobs are found in medical practices, insurance companies, and organizations that specialize in billing. Along with determining the correct code for medical services, a medical biller and coder prepares invoices for payment and insurance claims, tracks those payments, and corrects rejected claims. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment in medical billing and coding jobs to increase by 8% over the next 10 years.

About Working in Los Angeles, California
The Hollywood sign stands for everything glamourous and star-studded in Los Angeles. But did you know it was built in the 1920s to advertise a new neighborhood called Hollywoodland? The "land" was eventually dropped from the sign in 1949, and it became associated with nearby Paramount Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Today, downtown L.A. is the largest government hub outside of Washington D.C. and has the largest historical theater district in the U.S. But not all Los Angeles jobs are in show business. More than 700,000 health services and biomedical jobs and 190,000 aerospace jobs stoke L.A.'s economy.
If L.A. were a country, the city's economy would be bigger than those of Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and Sweden. Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis, engulfing five counties—Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, Orange, and San Bernardino. If you're looking for jobs in Los Angeles, you have a lot of choices for relocation. There are more than 80 neighborhoods in L.A. and 16 districts just in downtown. For those who want a slightly less hectic pace, you can also find jobs in L.A.'s beautiful suburbs, including Pasadena, West Covina, and Anaheim.
