The Medical Billing program helps students develop the knowledge and skills needed to successfully work in healthcare reimbursement. Students learn medical terminology, documentation and confidentiality, medical coding basics, and patient billing and collections as well as specialized considerations such as the ICD-10 code set and X12 5010 billing system.
The Career Step Medical Billing training program is 145 completion hours. Since the program is completely self-paced and the online training format allows you the flexibility to study as much or as little as your schedule allows, the time it takes you to complete the course will vary from other students. Some students are able to complete their training program in as little as 1 or 2 months and others, who are more limited in the time they can devote to the course, take longer (for example, students who can devote about 10 hours a week may finish in about 4 months).
Every student who enrolls in the Career Step Medical Billing training program receives an initial 6-month period of enrollment. Though the program is designed to be completed in 3 months of full-time study, you'll have a full 6 months to complete your training. If you need extra time to complete the course after your initial 6-month enrollment, we have 3-month extensions available for purchase.
In addition to one-on-one instructor support and personalized graduate support, students receive five textbooks and a one-year membership to the American Medical Billing Association. Everything you need to succeed is included and this course will take 145 hours to complete. Additional details are available at www.careerstep.com/bellevue.
