A Coding and Reimbursement Specialist reads and interprets the medical records of patients in all types of health care facilities to obtain detailed information regarding their diseases, injuries, surgical operations and other procedures. This specialist then assigns codes using specific code sets. A person wanting to become a Coding and Reimbursement Specialist should have an interest in working with medical information and be comfortable working at a job that involves significant computer work and is detail driven.
Graduates of the Coding and Reimbursement Specialist program are immediately prepared to help heath care providers and patients, and meet or exceed the competencies required by the AAPC (American Academy of Professional Coders), which qualify them to sit for the national coding exam and obtain their CPC (certified professional coder) credential.
We also offer a Medical Coding Certificate through our 100% online program, LB iLearn.
