The Medical Billing and Coding Certificate Program is designed for those who want to begin medical billing and coding careers or prepare for a nationally recognized certification exam. The training in this program provides the necessary skills required by employers seeking a medical biller or medical coder. Medical billers are responsible for submitting claims to insurance companies, Medicare, Medicaid, and in some instances, patients themselves on behalf of their employers or clients. Professional medical coders transform verbal descriptions of diseases, injuries, and procedures into numeric or alphanumeric codes. The coding of health-related data permits access to medical records by diagnoses and procedures for use in clinical care, research, and education. Students who successfully complete this program are prepared to sit for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC)—Certified Professional Coder Exam (CPC) and/or the AAPC Certified Professional Biller (CPB) exam. For more information on the national certification exams or student membership with the AAPC or AHIMA, please visit either www.aapc.com or www.ahima.org. This program takes nine months to complete, and runs over the course of two semesters. Payment plans available.
Prerequisite: 1) Proficiency in English and proof of high school diploma or GED is required. 2) Must be at least 18 years of age. 3) Students must be comfortable using computer systems.
Students who pass the CPC exam are eligible to receive college credit through Charter Oak State College.
