This program focuses on training students on the skills required for Medical Billing and Coding through hands-on exercises, lectures, demonstrations, and group and individual projects. Students become familiar with the daily operations of the medical office environment, medical terminology, current billing procedures, implementing procedures and diagnostic codes, basic bookkeeping, and the legal aspects surrounding the medical office. Students will also be accurate typists (35 wpm minimum), use their basic knowledge of computer/medical software as well as interpret insurance rules and regulations. They will access information via the Internet, understand billing methods and the billing cycle to generate insurance claims accurately as well as have a clear understanding of administrative operations, the importance of obtaining/locating proper patient information and how information must be documented. We will focus on the financial components necessary to submit a clean claim and be reimbursed within a reasonable amount of time. We will have our students up-to-date on the various insurance types/coverage and the insurance terminology itself. Student will study the billing process in both manual and electronic form. This skill and knowledge enhancement will enable the graduate, upon completion of required course work, to further develop his or her career as a Medical Biller and Coder through a 160-hour externship in a clinic, laboratory, physician?s office, hospital, or other setting that employs Medical Billing and Coding personnel.
