Coding is required to bill insurance companies. It also is used in the medical records departments of different medical facilities. Students will learn the different rules in coding various diagnoses in ICD-10-CM format. Those same codes are used for billing insurance companies in order to get the best reimbursement. In CPT coding, the students will learn how to code the doctor’s or the medical facility’s procedures/services.  This course is a prerequisite for Medical Insurance Principles.
