According to MarketWatch, several job sectors are expected to grow as a result of Obamacare. All, it should be noted, are professional jobs that pay above minimum wage. Here are the non-health care gigs you wouldn't expect:
1. Computer Programmers
Did you know that the Affordable Care Act mandates that medical records be stored electronically? Most hospitals, clinics, and doctor's offices have moved into the digital age, but that doesn't mean all their old records moved with them. Computer programmers will help translate all that old paper data into a form that the modern office can use.
Think you're confused by the fine print? Spare a thought for the poor folks in HR, who will have to untangle all of the changes to make sure their companies are on the right side of the law. The good news for workers is that this will require many companies to staff up their payroll departments.
3. Customer Service Representatives
When you're sick, you call a doctor. When you get the bill, and it makes absolutely no sense, you call your health insurance company. A CSR answers the phone. Expect calls -- and demand for these jobs -- to rise after the exchange marketplaces open on October 1.
