School of Allied Health - Medical Billing & Coding Specialist

Have you ever wanted to be part of a medical facility, but preferred an administrative angle? Now, with your degree in Medical Billing & Coding, you can have the ability to be part of a clinical office, hospital, nursing home, or you may even work from home!

The Medical Billing and Coding Specialist Program will prepare the student to access health information for medical billing and coding. Students will learn skills in coding procedures, coding classification and reimbursement (ICD-9-CM coding, HCPCS coding, CPT coding). Students will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of medical ethics and legal issues, and basic anatomy and physiology including medical terminology. Finally, students will be able to identify diseases, and assign appropriate medical codes to narrative descriptions of health diseases and procedures required for reimbursement, medical research, quality assurance, or risk management. Upon completion of the program, graduates will receive a certificate of completion from RGV College. Graduates of this program may pursue certification by passing national measures and proficiency examination with the National Center for Competency Testing. Employment opportunities may exist in medical offices, outpatient clinics, private billing agencies, consulting firms and home office. This program is represented to lead to multiple job opportunities and is not meant to lead to any particular outcome. While job placement assistance is offered, finding a job is the ultimate responsibility of the student.
