About this Program
Thorough understanding of medical terminology, human anatomy and physiology and human disease conditions is necessary for anyone working in this field. Medical coding involves using nationally-recognized coding systems to classify procedures and diagnoses related to medical treatment. These codes provide information that is used in insurance claims processing.
Many different types of insurance programs are handled in the medical office. Students will examine insurance programs/plans such as Medicare, Medicaid & TRICARE, profit and non-profit third-party payers, workers' compensation packages and disability coverage.
Graduates of the program may be eligible to take one of the national coding certification exams.
