Program Details

With this program, you'll learn how to perform medical billing, submit claims to insurance companies, and evaluate coding practices. You'll also discover the tools for developing compliance programs that will meet the standards of health care rules and regulations.

First, you'll complete our Medical Terminology course, which covers the language you'll need for communicating as a healthcare professional. You'll learn specific terms and their application, as well as common prefixes and suffixes so it's easy to interpret unfamiliar terminology.

Our Medical Coding course introduces you to the three major coding systems used in health care: ICD, CPT, and HCPCS. You'll learn how to apply coding guidelines to accurately assign diagnoses and procedure codes.

Next, you'll tackle Medical Billing. This course explains the complexities of medical billing and offers a complete understanding of the reimbursement process, including forms preparation, processing, and follow-up. In addition, you will learn about the evolution of medical reimbursement, reimbursement methodologies, legal and regulatory issues, and the role of national diagnosis and procedure coding systems.

By the end of this course, you'll be ready to take the CBCS exam, offered through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). We'll provide a voucher to cover the cost of the exam. Please note, in addition to the completion of a training program like ours, the NHA requires you to present proof of a high school diploma or the equivalent before you sit for their exam
