Medical Billing Program FAQs
What is medical billing?
Medical billing is critical to the health of every healthcare facility. It’s the process of gathering patient data, submitting claims for reimbursement, and collecting payment for services provided. Without medical billers, healthcare facilities would quickly flat line, so to speak.
What does a medical biller do every day?
You’ll help healthcare facilities keep the lights on (by keeping the money coming in). Specific responsibilities vary from job to job, but often include:
- Registering patients and verifying their insurance coverage
- Collecting the information required to create a claim
- Working directly with insurance companies, healthcare providers, and patients to get claims processed and paid
- Reviewing and appealing unpaid and denied claims
- Handling collections of unpaid accounts
- Managing Accounts Receivable reports
- Answering patients’ billing questions
How much do medical billers make?
Your medical billing career salary will vary by employer, location, and experience. But according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for medical records and health information specialists is $45,240.* So as a medical biller, you can earn a great income with job security, upward mobility, and the potential for employee benefits.
What is the outlook for medical billing jobs?
Demand is rising alongside the increasing need for healthcare services. Both are due to our aging population plus greater numbers of people insured through the Affordable Care Act. If you’re considering a new career and looking for a good opportunity, you may have just found it. Medical billing jobs are plentiful, and the field is growing steadily. Burning Glass estimates 13% growth in medical billing jobs in 10 years.*
Do I have to be certified to work?
Medical billing certification is not required for employment. However, certification is always a plus. It improves your employment opportunities and earning potential as well as sets you apart from other job candidates. Our medical billing program prepares you to earn the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) certification offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
Wondering how to become a medical biller?
Starting your medical billing career is simple. No specific skills or experience are required. Just be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) certificate. Optionally, you can pass the CareerStep Pre-Training Assessment Test. Then sign up for our medical billing program, pass the course, and let us help you land that first awesome job!
What’s the difference between our medical billing program and medical coding and billing program?
Good question. First, let’s clarify the differences between the jobs. Medical coders and billers work closely together, and their jobs are interrelated. However, in the reimbursement process, medical coders take the lead assigning standardized codes to patients’ tests, treatments, and procedures. Then, medical billers compile the patients’ coded expenses and submit their claims for payment.
Medical coding requires an understanding of clinical terms and concepts in addition to complex code sets. Medical billers are more finance oriented. You can do both programs to increase your income and value to employers.
Our medical billing online program features in-depth training on the billing side of reimbursement, including the required forms and processes. It also provides a brief introduction to medical coding.
Our medical coding and billing program focuses mostly on coding, but also provides a lighter overview of billing concepts.
