  • Here is the thing with Medical coding and billing- it will soon be obsolete. Is there anything else that you are interested in? I would hate to see anyone train for something and then not be able to get a job because it is no longer needed.

  • OMG why is it going to be obsolete? Anything in the office or even xray tech, or do sonograms. Any advice would be sooo appreciated.

  • Medical Billing and Coding is becoming obsolete because of technology. More and more doctor's offices are getting hand held devices that lets the doctors, nurses, etc input the information into the device and everything is already in electronic format. As far as x-ray tech, you could probably go to school online for your core classes but with clinicals and other program related classes you will have to do that in class. Is that an option for you?

  • Here is a list of all the Ohio colleges- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colleges_and_universities_in_Ohio, Look at the ones that are close to you and have the program that you want to do. To find out if they are a for profit school, google "Is such and such college a for profit school?" It should come back with results that let you know if it is for profit, not for profit, private, public, etc. type of school. When you have a list of 4-5 colleges, call each one and see if they offer online core classes. If none of them do, check to see if they accept credits for those core classes from another college (one good one is Columbia College of Missouri). Cont..

  • Cont..Once you got that figured out, you can tour the campuses and decide which school you would like to attend. Be sure that you follow the class guidelines especially if you will be transferring your credit to a school close to you. It is always best to call the school that you will be obtaining your degree from to make sure they will accept a certain class before you take it. Good luck!
