Online Medical Coding & Billing Certificate
Point University’s financial-aid eligible Medical Coding & Billing Certificate program prepares students to thrive in the rapidly growing healthcare field. With an emphasis on medical terminology and the two most commonly-used coding manuals – CPT and ICD – students will gain the confidence to navigate patient health records, code data, and process insurance claims to ensure prompt payment to healthcare providers. In addition to providing in-demand skills that will qualify students for immediate employment in the field, students will also be prepared to earn certifications offered through AAPC, the American Health Information Management Association, and the National Healthcareer Association.
Students looking to further their education and career opportunities can transfer the 24 credits earned through the certificate program towards Point’s 100% online Associate of Science in Medical Coding & Billing, and then the Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration. While the certificate allows students to begin working and building experience, earning an associate degree shows commitment to the profession and is highly sought-after by employers.
