Medical Billing and Coding
The Certified Billing and Coding Specialist training course will prepare you to successfully pass the National Healthcareer Association exam and directly enter the field of healthcare as a Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS). The program includes a well-blended mix of classroom, audio-visual presentation and a shadow experience.
Billing & Coding Specialists have an expansive range of opportunities for employment. The skills learned through the NHA CBCS certification are essential to hospitals, physician offices, surgery centers, nursing homes, dental offices, home healthcare agencies, mental health facilities and even insurance companies and consulting firms.
As a CBCS, you may perform some or all of the following tasks:
- Gather/review essential patient information
- Verify required documentation before patient information is released
- Prevent fraud/abuse by auditing billing
- Support coding and billing process
- Assign codes for diagnoses and procedures
- Submit claims for reimbursement
- Coach healthcare providers to achieve optimal reimbursement
We realize work, life and family obligations can sometimes prevent you from attending educational opportunities. With that in mind, we have tailored the program to fit the busy schedules required by family life and work.
The CBCS program offers students both theoretical and practical training through hands-on experience. Instruction is provided by an experienced CBCS who is currently in the field of Coding.
This program prepares you to pass the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist examination through NHA.
Classes meet on Tuesday/Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. for seventeen (17) weeks. There are 16 weeks of lecture followed by 1 week of exam bootcamp and the certification exam.
