Insurance Claims Representatives
Employment in this field is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Most of the new jobs will be created as a result of increased insurance sales, resulting in a larger number of insurance claims. Jobs will also come from growth in the population, economics, trends in insurance settlement procedures, and opportunities arising from employees who change jobs or retire. Also, the growing aging population is increasing the need for insurance claims adjusters and examiners in the health insurance industry. The DOL also reports that more claims examiners will be needed to examine the growing number of medical claims that large insurance companies are making in attempts to minimize costs.
