There’s a huge demand for talent in the field of Medical Billing and Coding. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this demand is up 21%. Although a distinction exists between Medical Billers and Coders, both positions offer an opportunity to earn a good income. Both positions, which require learning very detailed medical terminology, can command a salary of over $50,000 annually.  To date, North Carolina has upward of 5,000 Billers and Coders, 15% of which are here in Charlotte. This in-demand position is wide open for people looking to get into a potentially lucrative field and play an integral role in saving lives. ‘COMMUNITY VOICES’ host, Ron Holland talked with Veronica Hodges, Owner and Instructor of ‘MED CODE SOLUTIONS AND TRAINING’ about her efforts to attract talented people into the Medical Billing and Coding field.
