The online Medical Coding and Insurance Diploma program teaches students the various procedures within the medical services billing area, so students learn about the various billing processes such as patient account management, diagnosis and procedure coding, and insurance claim completion and processing. The curriculum educates students on the claims processes of many insurance programs and plans including Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, profit and non-profit third-party payers, and disability coverage, and teaches nationally recognized coding systems in order to classify procedures and diagnosis related to treatment. Students will be able to understand and use the language of medicine, use technology for healthcare applications, interpret health records, perform diagnosis and procedure coding, perform bookkeeping and insurance procedures, and exhibit ethical behavior.
