Medical Billing and Coding professionals play an essential role in the health care industry. If you are interested in a health care career and would prefer not to work directly with patients, Keiser University can help with our Associate of Science in Medical Administrative Billing and Coding.
This degree program prepares graduates to take the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) credentialing examination as an apprentice.
This program instructs students in how to understand and use the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) as well as the Current Procedural Terminology and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (CPT-4/HCPCS) to assign accurate medical codes for diagnosis, procedures, and other services provided by physicians and other health care practitioners. Students also learn clerical and administrative functions related to insurance claims, compliance, and reimbursement. Graduates understand medical insurance terminology, claim forms, electronic health records, and insurance plans.
Students in the program also take courses such as Medical Law and Ethics, Computerized Medical Office Management, and Medical Office Procedures with Insurance.
