Why is it so Hard to Get a Medical Coder Job? | Healthcare News …

HCquestionSeveral professionals in the medical coding field have written to us, asking about (and complaining about) job opportunities. Here’s one letter, and we thought you could help us respond:

“Why is it soooooo hard to get a foot in the door? Why are there not more mentoring programs? How can a first-time coder get experience? A lot of money and time is put into obtaining a certificate in coding and then you find out there are no jobs; unless you have any kind of experience, you feel defeated.”
