MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING With National Certification
As a Medical Biller/Coder you are responsible for reviewing the documentation the physicians have provided and assigning the correct diagnosis and procedure codes, entering the necessary information into the patient’s account and submitting the claims to the Insurance Companies. You are then responsible for tracking and receiving payment from the Insurance Companies and billing the patient when necessary. You will also be responsible for reviewing any denials and researching to make sure that the claim was submitted correctly the first time. If any necessary changes can be made, you are responsible for making the changes and following up with the Insurance Companies.
Basic computer knowledge is a must. Many offices use the Internet and are willing to provide you with their billing programs to install on your home computer allowing you to work from home.
Medical Billers and Coders are in high demand. Most offices and hospitals find it very difficult to find Medical Billers and Coders and when they do, they are willing to provide great pay and benefits.

As well as working in physician’s offices and hospitals, you can choose to work for Medical Billing Companies, Ambulance Companies and Nursing Homes.
