Overall, employment in this field is expected to grow slower than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Most new jobs will be created as a result of increased health insurance sales on account of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, resulting in a larger number of insurance claims (including by high-risk individuals who are more likely to file claims). The growing aging population is also increasing the need for insurance claims adjusters and examiners. The DOL also reports that more claims examiners will be needed to examine the growing number of medical claims that large medical insurance companies are receiving in attempts to minimize costs. Employment for insurance claims representatives in the health care industry is expected to grow by nearly 27 percent through 2024, or much faster than the average for all careers.
