There are at least 25 hospitals in San Antonio. There are also dozens (if not hundreds!) of general practitioners, eye clinics, pediatricians, dentists, urgent care facilities, outpatient surgical centers, and physical therapists. Other than taking care of patients’ various needs, what do all these healthcare institutions have in common? They all need skilled employees who know how to do medical billing & coding.
But what exactly is Medical Billing & Coding?
Medical billing and coding classes teach skills needed in a healthcare setting. Doctors’ offices, clinics, and hospitals all hire employees for medical billing and coding. Many of the skills overlap with those needed in a regular business office. But in healthcare, employees need to also know medical terminology and processes.
