Medical Coding & Billing Classes in New York

Topics covered

In order to become a certified medical biller and coder (or “health claims specialist”), one must gain knowledge of several different subject areas, including anatomy, anesthesia, pathology and radiology. This option allows you to work in healthcare without attending medical school for 4 or more years. According to Trend Statistics, 25% of healthcare organizations’ budgets go towards administrative costs, which include salaries of medical billers. This represents one of the largest proportions of funds allocated to administration in the world. Medical billers should also learn to present information as clearly as possible, given that a survey conducted by TransUnion Health in 2014 showed roughly 54% of insured Americans said they were either occasionally or always confused by medical bills.
