“The launch of our Medical Billing program is very exciting as it is a natural follow-on to our AHIMA-approved medical coding training,” said COO Mark Thomas, the executive leading program development. “Medical billing and medical coding are often inter-related careers, and our experience in the inpatient and outpatient medical coding fields provides a training perspective that helps us prepare Medical Billing students with exactly the skills they need to succeed.”
The new Medical Billing course helps students develop the skills essential to a career in this area of healthcare reimbursement. The curriculum trains students in the payment process, the differences between various payers, billing and collections, office communication, industry specific forms and paperwork, and more. Experienced medical billers and medical billing managers have helped Career Step design this program to ensure graduates have the skills they will need to get jobs and succeed in the workforce.
The Career Step Medical Billing program includes 145 hours of curriculum and can be completed in less than 3 months. With the course’s online format, students can enroll whenever they are ready to get started and can study on a schedule and at a pace that fits their individual needs. Students also have access to experienced instructors throughout the course and extensive graduate support as they are looking to turn their education into a job.
The medical billing field is part of the rapidly growing healthcare reimbursement field. These professionals are categorized by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics in the Medical Records and Health Information Technicians category. This field is individually expected to experience 21% employment growth between 2010 and 2020, which equates to over 37,000 new jobs, and represents a faster rate of growth than the average for all occupations.
