Medical Insurance Biller & Coder

Recording and coding patient health information.

More people than ever have access to health insurance and are using health care services today. As the aging population grows, the number of individuals with health insurance will also continue to climb. As a result, there is an increasing demand for trained Medical Insurance Billers and Coders who can organize and manage health care information.

Medical Insurance Billers and Coders and other health information technicians are tasked with documenting the health information for a patient, including their medical history, any symptoms, test results, and treatments, along with any additional information about health care services the patient received. Their responsibilities often depend on their employer and on the size of the health care facility in which they work.

Although Medical Insurance Billers and Coders do not offer hands-on patient care, they often work with doctors, registered nurses, and other health care professionals to clarify diagnoses or to obtain additional information to make sure patient records are complete and accurate.
