Medical Billing & Coding


 A Medical Billing and Coding Specialist’s main focus is converting a medical procedure, diagnosis, or symptom to specific codes for submitting a claim for reimbursement. As a Medical Billing and Coding Specialist, you may perform some or all of the following tasks: accurately locate documentation in the patient record to support the coding and billing process; accurately assign codes for diagnoses and procedures; submit claims for reimbursement based on payer policies and procedures; and coach providers on the best documentation practices to support quality coding and optimal reimbursement. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will sit for the National Healthcareer Association medical billing and coding specialist certification exam.
