Most people believe that going to school as an adult learner requires a huge change to your normal way of life. No more day job. No more weekends off. No more free time.
We’re here to tell you that this doesn’t have to be the case. Florida Gulf Coast University’s Medical Billing and Coding Specialist programs in partnership with MK Education, make it possible for you to build on your existing career rather than start a new one from scratch—and we help you do it around the busy work schedule and family obligations you already have.
The shortage of qualified personnel in technology-related healthcare fields provides opportunities for our graduates to excel in some of the most in-demand specialties. Medical Billing and Coding Specialist positions are projected to increase by 22% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. (www.bls.gov)
Medical billers and coders collect, analyze, and manage the information that steers the healthcare industry. They have an advanced knowledge of insurance and medical claims processing in accordance with professional, legal, and insurance industry standards. At the heart of the profession’s information responsibilities are records, both computer, and paper-based. Medical billers and coders orchestrate the collection of many kinds of documentation from a variety of sources, monitor the integrity of the information, and ensure appropriate access to the individual record.
Our Medical Billing and Coding Specialist programs are designed to help you advance your current health care career or to find entry-level employment in this field. You can feel confident that this flexibility also comes with high standards in training and education. Get started in an undergraduate certificate program and earn a credential employers recognize.
