Rethink Medical Billing And Coding Near Floresville. Online Is The Way!

The Need for Medical Billers and Coders

When determining your career path, you probably need to consider multiple factors in your decision, and one of those should be the projected growth of the work. Did you know that the medical billing and coding field is slated to increase by 15% between 2014 and 2024? This field is crucial to the smooth functioning of different areas within the healthcare industry. Why is this? First, healthcare is one of the United States’ biggest industries. Next, the American population is aging – and that means more healthcare visits. Finally, the not-so-stellar health of some Americans means more tests and treatments and this also translates to more healthcare visits.

The Work of Medical Biller and Coders

Although they do not work directly with patients, medical billers and coders are important in the healthcare industry. They are responsible processing patient data, including procedure and treatment records and their related insurance details. Then, they assign a code to each treatment and request reimbursement from the patient’s insurance company.

Your Training for Medical Billing and Coding

To obtain the knowledge to work as a medical biller and coder, you need to have the appropriate education. You will find medical billing and coding near Floresville at various vocational colleges.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
