Although there may be technology that will help, it can not always edit and audit, that has to be done by hand, and with the boomers aging and needing more medical care than ever, the feild is not going anywhere.
They said this about pharmacy technicians 10 years ago, and the profession has only become more in demand.
I have a feeling that many people will have to start paying cash for medical services and will need professional medical biller coder/sufitors to advocate for them on some ridiculus and outragous charges.
Did you know hospitals sometimes try to charge you for a 50 cent gingerale give it a fancy name and tack on sometimes $40 more?
Yeah billers and coders are the ones who can audit these ridiculus charges.
