This combined 80-hour billing and coding program offers the skills needed to resolve insurance billing problems, manually file claims using the ICD-10 and CPT-4 catalog procedures to complete common insurance forms, trace delinquent claims, appeal denied claims and use generic forms to streamline billing procedures. The program covers the following areas:

  • CPT-4 (Introduction, Guidelines, Evaluation, and Management).
  • Specialty fields (such as surgery, radiology, and laboratory).
  • ICD-10 (introduction and guidelines).
  • Basic claims processes for medical insurance and third party reimbursements.

Students will learn how to find the service and codes using CPT and ICD-10 manuals. After obtaining the suggested practical work experience (6 months to 2 years), students who complete this program could be qualified to sit for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) - Certified Professional Coder Exam (CPC or CPC - H Apprentice); the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Associate (CCA) exam; and/or other National Certification Exams.

In light of new federal requirements for electronic medical records, the healthcare industry needs medical billers and coders now more than ever. Medical billing professionals keep records, calculate patient charges, and maintain files of payments made to accounts. If you seek a detail-oriented role in a healthcare setting, consider enrolling in our 13-week, part-time program today.
