What Does It Mean To Earn Your Industry Certification As A Medical Coding and Billing Professional?

A professional coder reviews clinical documentation and translates medical procedures, diagnosis, supplies, and services into codes that are submitted on a medical claim to payers for reimbursement. A professional biller utilizes the codes assigned by the medical coder to process, submit, and track medical insurance claims. An individual with both medical coding and billing knowledge and training often fulfills both roles, assigning medical codes and processing healthcare insurance claims. Professional Coders and Billers demonstrate their proficiency by earning industry-recognized certifications.
