    Dear all,

    I am located in Boston, MA. I am looking for someone who is in medical coding and billing field? I have a few questions about this field as career.

    2. Do we need any sort of certification other than the AAPC and AHIMA?
    3. Do we need to have any background in science stream like a bachelors or masters degree in science
    4. What is the entry level pay scale and is their any career growth in this field?

    Thanks in advance!
