Posted Tuesday, Nov 22, 2011 by Allen B. Ury
If you live or work in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you can train for a career in medical insurance billing and coding (MIBC) at Everest College’s Fort Worth campus. The campus, located at 5237 N. Riverside Drive near the intersection of I-820 and I-35W in Fort Worth, Texas (76137), offers a diploma program that can prepare you to compete for entry-level jobs in MIBC in as little as eight months. Career services assistance for graduates is also offered at Everest campuses.
What Is MIBC?
Today, most doctors’ offices, hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities process their patients’ insurance claims electronically. For speed and accuracy, the insurance industry has developed a series of alphanumeric codes to identify the conditions, procedures, and drugs the health care industry commonly encounters. Understanding and utilizing these codes takes time and training. Over the years, medical insurance billing and coding has become a specialty with its own career path.
