Medical Billing (MBLG 100)

This Medical Billing program is a completely online, self-paced program that will quickly prepare students to successfully enter the workforce in this rapidly growing healthcare field.

This program helps students develop the knowledge and skills needed to work in healthcare reimbursement. The program focuses on documentation and procedures and includes hands-on exercises that allow students to apply what they learn. Students learn medical terminology, documentation and confidentiality, medical coding basics, and patient billing and collections as well as specialized considerations such as the ICD-10 code set and X12 5010 billing system. In addition to one-on-one support from experienced instructors throughout the course and access to personalized graduate support after graduation, students receive five textbooks and a one-year membership to the American Medical Billing Association.

This program includes six months of online access from the date of activation and students can register anytime. With an average completion of 145 hours, most students are able to finish the program in two to three months of part-time study (approximately 15-20 hours per week).
