The world has always been obsessed about health. For good reason, we are programmed to avoid death at all costs. Unfortunately, we are also programmed to experience pain whenever we have to pay too much for healthcare. For this reason, we've given the bill-paying responsibilities to health insurance companies, and now expect our employers to provide us with cheap premiums. This current system works well in every way but one--healthcare prices aren't really affected by the law of supply and demand--thus they keep rising rapidly.
Rising health care costs hurt a lot of us, but they often help those with careers in healthcare. If you don't want to be on the losing side of rising healthcare prices, why don't you look into a career in healthcare? The healthcare field is enormous, and within it exist jobs for people with a wide variety of skills. The most accessible jobs for those who don't want to spend years in school are in the administrative and technical segments of the healthcare industry. These types of jobs, with titles including "medical record coder" and "medical technician," usually only require a few years of school at a community or vocational college.
Other careers in the healthcare field may require a bit more training. Registered nurses generally need to have an undergraduate degree. Paramedics need to go through extensive medical training and other certification procedures. Of course, medical doctors are generally required to spend the better part of their young adult lives working to become licensed physicians.
