Diploma in Medical Billing & Coding
American National University

Program Details

Have you ever wondered what happens to your insurance claim when you walk out of a doctor’s office? A Medical Coder accurately records specific codes from your diagnosis and treatment. Then, Medical Biller follows an administrative sequence to process the claim through the insurance company and notifies you of any payment due. At American National University, an online Diploma in Medical Billing and Coding enables you to prepare for not one, but both of these careers. In as little as 10 months, you can acquire the skills to succeed in these behind-the-scene positions which are critical to the healthcare industry. Some of these skills include:

  • Learning medical terminology and how to code procedures and diagnoses (CPT and ICD standardized)
  • Medical records maintenance
  • Billing applications and processing using various software
  • Processing insurance claims

Once you complete your Diploma in Medical Billing and Coding from American National University, you will be eligible for certification through the American Association of Medical Billers (AAMB) or the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).
