What is MIBC?
Today, most medical insurance claims are processed electronically. Rather than requiring people to write out the full names of diagnoses, procedures, medications, etc., the industry has developed a series of alpha-numeric code that can be more easily entered into reports, claim forms, etc. Understanding and utilizing these codes takes time and training. Over the years, it has become a specialty with its own career path.
Where do MIBC specialists work?
MIBC specialists can be found in a variety of locations. These include:
