Class Description


What you'll learn in this medical training:

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the projection of growth and demand for medical coders and billers is growing rapidly. With the skill set you will obtain in this series, you will be prepared to sit for the license exam for a national certification with AAPC or AHIMA. So if you’re interested in working with a doctor’s office, clinic or healthcare facility, dental office, insurance company, or independent billing company, LACC Extension’s Medical Billing and Coding Series is a great place to start your career or expand on your skills!

Medical Terminology: 

To work in healthcare, knowing medical terminology and having the ability to communicate with physicians, dentists, and other medical professionals is a must. Learning medical terminology will open the door to many job opportunities in the healthcare field. Students in this course will receive thorough instruction in developing fluency with medical terms covering the different body systems, body orientation, diseases, and medical treatments. By the end of this course, you will be familiar with word components for quick mastery of countless medical terms and be able to communicate effectively with peers in the field. Required book: The Language of Medicine by Davi-Ellen Chabner, 10th, 11th, or 12th edition. Physical book or .pdf version.

Medical Coding:

In physician practice it is common for the Medical Biller to also be the Medical Coder because physicians depend on the Biller/Coder to determine the diagnostic codes for procedures. In this class, you will learn how to find the proper procedure (CPT-4) and diagnostic codes (ICD-10), how to do proper code sequencing, and when to use these codes. Prerequisite: Medical Terminology or experience in the medical field. Required Books: ICD-10-CM for Physicians (Professional or Expert). Any preferred publisher. CPT Professional Edition (CPT/Current Procedural Terminology). Published by American Medical Association. For both books, old editions are permitted if only to be used for practice (2020, 2019, 2018, 2017). Current edition if to be used for current year’s license exam.

Medical Insurance Billing: 

Once you have taken Medical Coding, you are ready for the final class in the series. In Medical Insurance Billing, students will get a thorough know-how of billing all 3rd party payers for physicians’ charges. This class will give you a look into the differences between insurance policies and insurance companies, how to fill out forms required for billing, how to handle patients, and collect their payments. Prerequisites: Medical Terminology & Medical Coding. Have your ICD-10/CPT-4 coding books.
