Medical coding & Billing (MCB)

(12 month program access)

Medical coding and billing professionals translate medical records into standardized codes used to bill patients and third-party payers such as insurance companies and
Medicare.  Coders use 3 different code sets: CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9/10. It's important to train on the new ICD-10 code set because all healthcare facilities and physicians must
transition from the ICD-9 codes to these new codes on October 1, 2014.

The Medical Coding and Billing program can be completed in 565 hours, or 4 months of full-time study.
