Medical Billing and Coding training offers a career in processing patient health records in a medical practice, hospital, or health care facility. . After a patient receives health care treatment in a medical office, the medical coder converts the services provided into codes so a claim can be created for payment. A medical biller follows the claim to ensure reimbursement for the health care facility. Although certain offices may assign one individual to perform both tasks, Medical Billing and Medical Coding are often two separate jobs. We will also fully prepare you to utilize the new ICD-10 coding system that recently went into effect across the nation.
