Billing Clerks - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

Billing clerks work in almost every industry.

Major employers:

  • Doctors' offices
  • Hospitals
  • Accounting and bookkeeping firms

Outlook

Demand for this occupation will show little to no change over the next few years. Job growth will be the strongest in health care. Health clinics and hospitals will hire more billing clerks as they try to treat more patients. In addition, health care providers must bill both patients and insurance companies which means twice as much work as other businesses.

However, growth in this occupation is limited by the fact that computers are making the billing process easier. A clerk can produce and send out the bills in a significantly shorter amount of time. In addition, workers in other occupations, such as bookkeepers, are adding billing to their list of duties.

Many openings for billing clerks will occur as current workers leave this occupation. This is an entry-level occupation. Many clerks leave it for other work.
