What is Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration?

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.

Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration Externships

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.

Certification for Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration Graduates

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.
