Anyone know anything about Medical Billing and Coding?

I am thinking of taking up Medical Billing and Coding, specifically at the University of Phoenix online. I need to know how long the course is, what the starting pay is, job outlook, and what exactly it is that you do on the job. I would perfer someone who is in this field to answer this question.

And lastly, is there an associates degree for this course?
