I'm still deciding whether pharmacy tech or medical coding and billing. I know medical coding pays wayyy more but i've been reading of how hard it is to find a job, but also how the new icd-10 is going to need more people into the field. In my area, they are always looking for pharmacy tech, however, the pay is low. I'm about to start school and I have just one day to decide between these two. This is a second career/job, becausd I already have a bachelors degree but I need money to invest in my photography business... please need ur opinions and experience! Thanks!!
(I have two daughters so I need whatever is going to land in a job fast and givd me good money. I would enjoy both of thess careers)

I would do both to be honest. You could work as a claims benefits analyst at one particular company if you have your Pharmacy Tech license and certificate and a medical coding background. Depending on what state you reside, you don't have to bother with the classes to become a Pharmacy Tech. Just take the exam and pass. But please check with your local state government to be absolutely sure.
