Medical Billing and Coding Specialist

Do you aspire to be an integral part of the healthcare field? With the increase in the nation’s aging population, along with the implementation of ICD-10, there is an added demand for medical billing and coding professionals. Through their work creating detailed billing records and efficiently coded invoices, these specialists ensure the business side of health care does not obstruct the vital medical care that patients need. Without the contributions of the billing and coding specialists, neither doctors nor insurance companies could properly provide their services to patients.

AAPC Partnered Program

Our program is partnered with the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC) – a gold standard organization – which will benefit individuals looking to enter this rapidly growing field.
