Medical Coding CPT

60 students review


p> In this course, we're going to learn medical coding from the ground up. Whether you are new to medical coding, or already have experience, this course is written in 'laymen's terms' yet is comprehensive enough to help even seasoned medical coders. The healthcare industry, complex and rigorous even for the most knowledgeable and thorough of professionals, requires that paperwork be submitted both in a highly, accurate, and timely manner. The area of healthcare involving the completion of paperwork outlining patients' billing histories and submission of them to the individual's insurance company for reimbursement is known as 'medical billing'. Within medical billing there exists the practice of 'medical coding' whereby codes are assigned to medical procedures and diagnoses in order to relay in a universally accepted medical language information to the insurance company or in some cases, governmental agencies.
