Medical Billing and Coding Administrator Training: An Evolving and Expanding Field
What is Medical Billing and Coding?
Today, Medical Billing and Coding expertise is an essential component in our healthcare system. It is a system used by virtually every healthcare provider, facility, insurance company and more, as a standard way to note and record patient information, clarify procedures, and record diagnoses.
The use of a coding system in healthcare is not new. Medical coding goes back to the 1600s in London, when alphanumeric codes were used to notate illnesses and fatalities among the city’s population. Fast forward a few centuries and by the 1930’s, coding systems had been developed for tracking disease, medicine, and mortality rates and were implemented internationally. Students in the All-State Career Medical Billing and Coding program will learn how the
Bertillon Classification, which was created nearly 140 years ago, is still the basis for medical coding today.
The comprehensive medical billing and coding training offered by All-State Career in Baltimore, MD teaches students the technical, administrative, and interpersonal skills necessary to excel in this field and have a rewarding career. Some of the many skills that we teach include:
- Collecting patient information and completing procedural coding
- Reviewing insurance forms for completeness and accuracy and then submitting
- Protecting the security and confidentiality of medical records
- Processing patient admission or discharge documents
If you love details, working with established processes and are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, then a medical billing and coding career could be a perfect fit for you! Once you have learned and can successfully demonstrate the skills taught in the MBC program, you will receive a diploma and be ready to begin your new career.
