Medical Insurance Billing and Coding professionals are tasked with the responsibility of processing patient data such as records pertaining to treatment as well as related insurance information. Although some smaller offices assign one individual to perform both tasks, Medical Billing and Medical Coding are two separate jobs.

Medical Coders assign corresponding code to medical procedures to efficiently obtain reimbursement from insurance providers. The task of a medical coding specialist does not rely on interaction with insurance companies or patients and is a good choice for someone that enjoys analyzing information processing data as code.

Medical Billing Specialists are more involved in the process of accurately billing insurance providers and making sure that everyone from patients to healthcare providers is properly reimbursed. Because Medical Billing requires a lot of interpersonal communication, this position is excellent for individuals that enjoy working directly with other people.

Many of the skills that are necessary to become a successful Medical Insurance Billing and Coding Specialist include:

  • Medical Terminology
  • Medical Billing Software
  • Medical Documentation Evaluation
  • Government Programs
  • Basic Math
  • Keyboard and Computer Skills
  • Administrative Duties

At Allen School of Health Sciences, we offer all of the necessary training through our online-based program that will prepare you for an exciting new career that offers job opportunities in various medical facilities such as doctor's offices, hospitals or other healthcare agencies.
