Medical Billing and Coding
720 Hours, Location: Greentree Health Science Academy


Medical billers and coders are responsible for assigning codes to diagnoses and procedures in order to ensure proper financial reimbursement from insurance companies and government agencies. Employment of health information technicians is projected to grow 22% from 2012-2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. The demand for health services is expected to increase as the population ages. Medical billers and coders, also called insurance coders or claims specialists, use a universally recognized coding system and must ensure correct code selection for compliance with federal regulations and insurance requirements.
