    Medical Billing/Coding (15 units)

    Medical Billing/Coding
    workers are primarily responsible
    for submitting documentation of patient medical care to insurance
    companies. Duties include billing insurance companies
    and patients; collecting payment for services; and documenting

    Certificate program provides the training that is required to
    perform these duties. Employment outlook for medical billing/
    coding workers is expected to grow much faster than the average
    for all occupations through 2012, due to rapid growth in
    the number of medical tests, treatments, and procedures that
    will be increasing scrutinized by third-party payers, regulators,
    courts, and consumers.
