Program Overview

The Medical Billing & Coding Associate of Science Degree curriculum is designed so that upon graduation students are prepared for an entry-level career as a Medical Biller & Coder. These positions can potentially be found almost anywhere in the medical field: hospitals, clinics, doctor offices, specialized medical offices and even health insurance companies.

This process can take anywhere from a few days to a few months to complete, details and follow up are critical to ensure complete transactions. The medical coding portion is used to transform descriptions of diagnoses and/or procedures into one universally known language known as medical codes.

Several specialized courses help prepare the students for completion of the degree:

  • Electronic Medical Records
  • Billing and Coding
  • Record Management

The Daytona College of Medical Billing and Coding is recognized by the National Healthcare Association. Graduated students will be eligible for the Certified Bliling & Coding Specialist exam, and the Certified Electronic Health Record Specialist exam.
