Medical Billing and Coding Education in Texas - TX

Texas is among  the fastest growing states in the nation. In addition to the warm, dry climate and relatively low cost of living that appeals to retirees, Texas has a vibrant young community as well. Many stay in the state following college graduation while others move into the state for the multitude of outdoor activities from mountain biking to hiking and climbing.

And, as the state continues to grow, so will its need for all manner of healthcare providers and support staff. Since those holding medical billing and coding certification in Texas are integral pieces to the overall stability of the healthcare industry, opportunities in Texas (and indeed the nation) will only continue to grow in the coming years.


Steps to Becoming a Medical Biller/Coder in Texas

Medical billers' and coders' daily work varies slightly but the path for education, finding work and the groups that govern their work are similar so we can address them as a single job description here.

Finding a Medical Biller/Coder Job in Texas

One of the biggest perks of a career in medical billing and coding is the ability to work as an independent contractor. This arrangement may not work for everyone--and may not be permitted for an entry level biller--but for a self-starter or someone who lives in a more remote area of Texas, working from home may be a real benefit.

For those who crave a more social work environment, Texas has several metropolitan areas, most with at least one major hospital and dozens of physicians' offices where entry level through highly skilled billers can seek employment.

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics currently includes "medical biller" and "medical coder" descriptions along with other healthcare support services positions so there is no definite number of billers and coders in Texas at this time.

Still, with the speed of growth in the state and the inevitable changes to the healthcare system, those holding an Texas medical billing certificate are bound to be in demand in the state for years to come. Again, those with certifications in ICD and CPT coding are likely to have an advantage over those who don't.

Medical Billing and Coding Professional Associations

Medical billing and coding, like many healthcare support careers, are not governed by an Texas-based association but by the national group, the American Medical Billing Association (www.ambanet.net). The AMBA's mission is to help its members become educated and certified and to help them find jobs through their extensive network. Their website is a comprehensive source for study guides and continuing education information and job boards, available to all members for $199 per year.
