Medical Billing


Medical billers and health information technicians organize and manage health information data by ensuring its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper and electronic systems. They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for insurance reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories. They work regularly with physicians, insurance companies, patients, and other health care professionals

The need for qualified medical billers has greatly increased due to demand for health care services and the tightening of government guidelines related to health care coverage, patient services and reimbursement processes. This program will train students to properly bill insurance claims, reimbursement policies, insurance guidelines, customer service, and account receivable. Students will also gain knowledge of medical, legal and ethical responsibilities, as well as anatomy and medical terminology. Students completing this program will be able to apply for employment opportunities in doctor’s offices, clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, labs, public health facilities and insurance agencies.
