Medical Billing and Coding School Opens the Door to a Career in Healthcare

medical office activityMedical billers and coders fulfill integral roles in the healthcare field such as as a Billing and Coding Technician, Health Information Specialist, Medical Administrative Assistant, Electronic Medical Records Specialist, or Health Technologist. Most positions in this field focus on administrative activities. Graduates may work in direct contact with patients obtaining health histories or completing medical billing paperwork.

Students in the program receive the training to sit for some of the top certifications in the industry, such as:

Further preparations for industry certifications require additional self-study after the completion of the program.

These certifications open the door to countless opportunities for work in the medical field and may offer a higher salary; however, certifications are not necessarily required to work in care facilities. Many entry-level medical biller and coder positions in a healthcare office may not require industry certifications.

Some of the top positions available to students with any of these certifications include:

  • Office administrative assistants. Those that complete coursework may be responsible for helping clinical administrators oversee office activities in private practice or other healthcare facilities. This includes ensuring patient documentation is complete and accurate, entering orders into an electronic health record, and verifying patient data.
  • Medical Billing and Coding Technician. Students may fulfill a vital role as office personnel, working to enter patient information or schedule patient appointments. They may also be responsible for relaying communications between the office, other healthcare providers, and third parties such as health insurance companies.
  • Medical Billing and Coding Professionals. Individuals working in this role may need to transcribe physician’s notes, enter billing details, and submit written physicians’ orders into medical software.

Upon gaining the respective certifications for success in this field, students may work to maintain electronic health records, enter medical codes for billing purposes or work in an administrative capacity over medical software and documentation.
