A major part of managing a medical office is billing patients for services rendered. In this fast-changing area, students will learn to understand the procedures of billing, recognize the different forms used by third-party carriers, complete each claim form for reimbursement and define insurance terminology and different types of coverage. Learn the responsibilities of a medical insurance specialist, the life cycle of an insurance claim, and the various templates for billing commercial insurance.
