Medical Billing

Medical Billers are responsible for making sure patients are billed correctly.

This involves interaction with patients, government agencies and insurance companies. Medical billers need to know how to read a medical invoice, understand some medical coding language and have strong human relations skills. This is a good job for someone who wants to balance interaction with people and analyzing invoices and data.
