Ross offers medical billing and coding related training in the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration program. Students receive direction from experienced instructors on basic human anatomy and physiology, disease processes and the associated pharmacotherapy, and medical terminology.
They are also instructed on administrative skills including medical charting and filing, financial recordkeeping, proper processing of medical insurance claims, and other routine medical office procedures. Graduates of this program should be prepared to seek entry-level employment in positions such as Medical Receptionist, Medical Secretary, Billing Clerk, Patient Account Representative, and Patient Services Representative.
Medical billers and coders are essential to the healthcare team at any medical facility. A medical biller and coder performs many administrative tasks that keep communication going between patients, physicians, and insurance companies. Some of the tasks they perform include tracking and recording patient data, communicating with doctors and other medical staff to ensure they have the correct information, managing coded information, and assigning the appropriate ICD-10 codes for treatments and diagnoses.
At the end of the classroom portion of the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration program, each student will go on to complete their externship. The Ross externship experience is vital to what we do as it gives our students real-world experience in a healthcare facility working with other healthcare professionals. It also allows employers the opportunity to check a student's skills as well as sharpen them before making any hiring decisions. Ross knows the importance of the externship experience, that's why we include it as part of the program.
Employers look for certification as they look for qualified healthcare professionals to fill roles in their facility. Certification proves that you possess the skills and knowledge that are fundamental in success on the job. However, it also speaks to the committment you have to your field.
As a healthcare training institution, the staff at Ross knows how important certification is. We are confident that we have fully prepared our graduates for their healthcare career, and we encourage our graduates to pursue certification to express their committment to patient care and excellence. Ross proves their confidence in their program and the education they give students by offering reimbursement to graduates that take the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist exam through the National Healthcareer Association.
Before I started Ross, I was looking to further my education, but was struggling financially. Ross makes sure that they help you be able to afford their program.

I have loved pursuing my education at Ross College! The instructors and staff are always smiling, and eager to help you succeed.Heather Mcpheeters Graduate Medical Assistant student at Quad Cities, IA campus Graduation: February 26, 2019
Ross has given me confidence that I haven't had in a long time. I've made some great friends and learned a lot while being here. I decided to further my career in the medical field because of my grandma who passed away last year. I'm glad I decided to do it every day when I pick up my kids from school. My doctor asks me if I'm going to be a doctor. I just laugh and say "Far from it," but I'm glad she sees me in that light.Sarah Long Graduate Medical Assistant student at Owensboro, KY campus Graduation: March 27, 2019
Before I joined Ross, I lost my job, my car, and I lost a child. I came to the conclusion that I was tired of being broke and working dead end jobs that I didn't enjoy doing. I wanted to do something I enjoyed and got paid to do because I take pride in my work. I always have to consider my 5 year old daughter when I make my life decisions, because she's been with me through all the struggles within the past five years. This time around I just had a talk with God. I asked him what I was destined for. That's how I ended up at Ross Medical. I am enrolled in the medical assistant program. I want to be a Phlebotomist and EKG Technician. The teachers and advisers are awesome! They are very fluent, vocal, and hands on when it comes to helping their students be successful. I enjoy coming to school every day. When I'm having a rough day, everyone is so welcoming, warming, family oriented, and understanding. Ross makes me happy. I appreciate and thank you ALL.Keturah Roberson Graduate Medical Assistant student at Saginaw, MI campus Graduation: January 17, 2019
Ross has helped me to realize even higher goals than I could have imagined for myself. I like the multi-cultural environment. Ross values diversity and gives back to the community through volunteer opportunities. I have been inspired to even pursue my master's degree and eventually my PhD. With English being my second language, it is a huge challenge for me to grasp the clinical part of the program, but because of the different resources and help that Ross has provided for me, I am more efficient and confident of my abilities as a future medical assistant.Isabelita Tatman Graduate Medical Assistant student at Fort Wayne, IN campus Graduation: March 27, 2019
