Becoming a Medical Biller and Coder
As a Medical Coder and Biller, you’ll be a significant contributor to the healthcare field. Without your attention to detail, the healthcare industry would be unable to transmit critical data that allows medical professionals to get paid for their services.
It will be your job to translate the medical provider’s notes from a patient visit into an alphanumeric code, which is then used to produce a claim for the insurance company and a bill for the patient.
We start your training by familiarizing you with industry software and the importance of HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) in our Microsoft and Medical Laws and Ethics courses.
It’s also critical that you understand the language of medicine so that you can accurately document what transpires during the care of each patient. For this reason, the Medical Billing and Coding program includes courses on Medical Terminology, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Anatomy & Physiology, and Medical Billing.
Our blended learning environment gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a variety of ways, such as through hands-on learning labs, self-directed reading, watching courseware and video instruction, and attending lectures with our instructors and industry experts.
When you’re close to completing the program, you’ll review the following five certification options with your instructor and schedule your exam.
- CMAA Certified Medical Administrative Assistant / National Healthcareer Association
- CEHRS Certified Electronic Health Record Specialist / National Healthcareer Association
- CBCS Certified Billing & Coding Specialist / National Healthcareer Association
- CPC-A Certified Professional Coder / AAPC
- CPB-Certified Professional Biller / AAPC
