Medical Billing and Coding will cover the basic structure for reimbursement, HIPAA, and compliance. Students will obtain foundational knowledge in outpatient coding, reporting guidelines, anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology. They will apply knowledge and skill in the guidelines and proper use of ICD-9, ICD-10 CM codes and Evaluation and Management (E/M) services. Students will also learn skills necessary for the healthcare industry in professional behavior, to include interpersonal skills and personal behavior, as well as gain an understanding of basic skills needed in medical law and ethics.
According to the Department of Labor, as the number of practices increases, the need for medical coders will also increase, ultimately resulting in a projected 13 percent job growth from 2016 to 2026. The majority of Medical Coders are promoted from within the practice. Two to three years’ experience in administrative areas is preferred prior to holding a coding position.
The Medical Coding program student will complete instructional and laboratory procedures for a period of up to 18 weeks in length. Successful completion of all courses is required to receive a program certificate of completion.
