What you'll learn

The Medical Institute of Kentucky Medical Billing and Coding program is a course that runs for 18 weeks. Students will engage in a stimulating range of learning activities that include basic medical terminology, revenue cycle monitoring, processing an insurance claim, patient payments, legal aspects of health insurance, HIPAA and compliance, guidelines for proper use of ICD-10 CM and ICD-10-PCS codes, and more. Career Development is also obtained throughout the program.

The Healthcare employee with Medical Billing and Coding Specialist training will assist the healthcare facility to manage insurance claims, invoices, and payments.  They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories. Most billing and coding technicians work in hospitals or physicians’ offices.

According to the Department of Labor, as the number of practices increases, the need for medical coders will also increase, ultimately resulting in a projected 9 percent job growth from 2020 to 2030. The majority of Medical Coders are promoted from within the practice. Two to three years of experience in administrative areas is preferred prior to holding a coding position.

The Medical Coding program student will complete instructional and simulation laboratory procedures for a period of up to 18 weeks in length. Successful completion of all courses is required to receive a program certificate of completion.
