According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assistants are in high demand, and that demand is expected to keep growing (source). As the demand for medical assistants increases, so does the medical assistant salary, as shown by the history of earnings. Between 2002 and 2004, medical assistants earned an average of $25,000 a year. With increased regulations in the healthcare field, the need for skilled assistants increased and so did the salary. In 2008, the average salary jumped to $29,000, then again to $30,000 in 2010. By 2013, the average salary of the top-earning medical assistants was $35,500, plus benefits.
