This medical 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.

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.

What are my career options?

As a medical biller and coder, you will use codes to keep track of patient illness, treatments, bills, and invoices. Work environments include hospitals, emergency rooms, or physicians’ offices.

This course is eligible for college credit after the successful completion of the program.
