CBCS Medical Billing and Coding is an ideal course for students new to this important position in the healthcare field. If you’re seeking entry into the healthcare industry, this comprehensive course will provide you with all the information you need to earn a certification in medical billing and coding.
Certified professional coders assign numeric codes to each procedure that appears in a patient’s medical record, so that payment can be rendered quickly and correctly. Aside from medical facilities, medical coding jobs are available with health insurance companies, pharmacies, medical suppliers, consulting firms, and medical billing companies.
During this course, you will learn the foundations of a medical vocabulary to help you better understand the contents of a patient’s medical record, as well as notes from practicing physicians. In addition, you’ll learn current medical coding standards, so you can be successful within the industry. You will be prepared to sit for the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). This course includes a voucher which covers the fee of the exam.
