Introduction to Medical Billing and Coding
Medical billing is the preparation of invoices for procedures rendered, and these are given to patients and insurance companies. Medical billers act as the financial waypoint between patients, providers, and payers. Without billers, healthcare providers couldn’t be reimbursed for the procedures they perform. The training videos in this section cover the key concepts and guidelines that underpin the billing process. You’ll learn how the insurance process works, and what types of payers affect the reimbursement process. Finally, we’ll discuss Medicare, Medicaid, and the regulations enforced under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
