Medical Administrative Services
In the Medical Administrative Services Program, students learn and practice the responsibilities of becoming an important, integral member of the health care team. Employment is usually in the hospital setting, however, the student will be qualified to work in other health care areas, such as doctors offices and clinics, in a non-clinical role. Most hospitals and health care facilities require employees to pass a criminal background check before being hired.
The Medical Coding and Reimbursement Specialist certificate insures that medical services are correctly identified on insurance claim forms. The individual codes the diagnoses and procedures performed, submits claim forms, researches and corrects insurance claim rejections. This program prepares graduates to file insurance forms for reimbursement and to code properly using the ICD, CPT and the HCPCS codes for patient diagnoses and procedures. Students are provided with an in-depth knowledge of medical terminology, anatomy, and coding procedures.
