Description of the Program

This program is designed for students to begin careers in Medical Billing and Coding. This course consists of Patient Billing, Basic Medical Terminology, Understanding Health Insurance and Medical Coding. This course prepares students for certification in Medical Billing and Coding. A coding specialist is an individual who reviews and analyzes health records to identify relevant diagnoses and procedures for distinct patient encounters. The coding specialist is responsible for translating diagnostic and procedural phrases utilized by health care providers into coded form. The translation process requires interaction with the health care provider to ensure that the terms have been translated correctly. The coded information that results from the coding process is then utilized for reimbursement purposes, in the assessment of clinical care, to support medical research activity and to support the identification of health care concerns critical to the public at large.
