Medical Billing and Coding

Medical Billing and Coding Specialist is the perfect career if you are interested in the medical field but do not want to work on the clinical side of things. Medical Billing and Coders work behind the scenes assigning standardized codes to diagnosis, tests and procedures. These codes are then used for billing. Billing and Coders will do some or all of the following:

  • Gather/review essential patient information
  • Verify required documentation before patient information is released
  • Prevent fraud/abuse by auditing billing
  • Support coding and billing process
  • Assign codes for diagnoses and procedures
  • Submit claims for reimbursement
  • Coach healthcare providers to achieve optimal reimbursement

This class is completed conveniently from your home online. Students are only required to attend five class days at our facility and come in for a sixth day to take their national test. Graduates of our Billing and Coding program can find careers in a variety of medical settings from hospitals, doctor’s offices, dental offices, nursing facilities, insurance companies and there are even jobs working out of your home!
