The rapidly aging American population has created a crisis in the health services and insurance industries. There are far more patients than there are doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, so the Federal government has been forced to step in to create incentives to attract more people into these industries. While you need at least a college degree to qualify for most jobs in the industry, office support roles, like medical billing and coding specialists are growing at a rate of over 20% a year, with no end in sight.
