Medical Coding Program

with Academy of Medical Professions, York Adult Education

$3,750

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, are willing to provide great pay and benefits.  If you chose to work in the office or hospital, flexible schedules are also possible and they tend to be very accommodating.

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

If you complete the course with a satisfactory grade, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from both Medical Billing and Coding as well as a certificate for Anatomy/Physiology and Medical Terminology.  In addition, you will receive a Letter of Recommendation, a list of companies in the field with addresses and phone numbers, and we would be happy to provide a personal reference for you.  Should you decide to take the CPC exam at the end of the course, you will receive a national certificate and a title of CPC-A (apprentice). 

NEW OPTIONAL PROGRAMS:  Please see our Course Descriptions for new program opportunities as well as our newest option to receive a total of 2 years coding experience by taking our Medical Coding program with Practicode!  In just a short time, you are not only certified but you also will have 2 years experience and no Apprentice title as well! 

Our instructors are professionals in the industry and can offer you the benefit of their knowledge and experience.
