Learn proper billing procedures
Students are introduced to the Health Claims profession in such areas as the health-care delivery systems, health information services, ethical and legal responsibilities, knowledge of Insurance agencies, proper billing and coding procedures, information for reimbursement of patient services, and transcribing the doctors written orders and verbal orders and progress notes into readable text.

The healthcare field relies on doctors and nurses to diagnose and treat patients successfully. But in order for these healthcare heroes to do their jobs correctly, they must rely on a team of administrative professionals to make sure the business side of the facility is managed properly. One of these professionals is the medical billing and coding specialist.
From physician’s offices to hospitals, every medical facility utilizes the expertise of medical billing and coding specialists to ensure the facility is properly reimbursed for the services it provides. This process involves creating coded medical records, generating invoices and electronically tracking payment information for both patients and insurance companies.
