Program Description
The Medical Coding and Billing program provides students with the technical skills and knowledge for an entry-level position in a health care setting through competency-based education. Students will study medical terminology, anatomy, laws and ethics, standard medical coding and billing methods, and medical coding software. Students will develop administrative office skills and receive hand-on experience using a Medical EHR system to schedule, manage patient accounts, and enter patient documentation. The program prepares students as an entry-level Medical Coder and/or Biller. In addition, medical coding and billing specialists will examine how to code diagnoses and procedures performed or identified by a physician.
