Medical Billing and Coding Schools Online… with Financial Aid in Mind

If you want to study for a secure career, working either with others in a medical office or having a flexible schedule working from home, medical billing and coding may be the right choice for you. Many medical billing and coding programs are available online, enabling you to fit your studies around your family life or current job. To ensure that your investment for the future is an affordable option today, look for a program where you are eligible for financial aid.


What You Learn at Medical Billing and Coding Schools Online

Studying a medical billing and coding program leads to a job as a medical billing or coding specialist — you become the connection between doctors, patients, and insurance companies. Most programs teach practical skills that are immediately useful for a career, including:

  • Medical insurance billing
  • ICD-9 and ICD-10
  • Medical coding
  • Charting
  • Patient care
  • Office procedures and administration
  • Business communication
  • Keyboard skills
  • Computer applications

You will work with industry professionals who can provide you with the knowledge you need to be successful in your new career. Many schools continue to support you even after you graduate with career assistance; however, as medical billing and coding specialists in such high demand, finding a job is usually not difficult. Completion of a medical billing and coding program leads to a certification, such as the Certified Billing and Coding Specialists (CBCS), Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), and Electronic Health Records Specialist (EHRS), which shows prospective employers that you are already trained and ready to begin work.  

Financial Aid

When you enroll in a program, the school’s finance team will help you find aid to meet your needs. Some schools offer their own financial assistance programs and financing options to help students meet their expenses — if you receive a grant or scholarship, you never need to pay the school back. Other institutions will be able to provide you with information and resources to gain a scholarship or grant through another organizations, or set you up with a loan that has a repayment plan that works for you. Veterans can seek out specialized financial aid services for military personnel, including programs approved for VA funding. Talk to a funding specialist in the school to find out how best apply your military benefits toward your chosen medical billing and coding program and for help with gathering and completing the necessary paperwork.

SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“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.”


Bonnie M
