The Medical Information Coder/Biller certificate is a 37 credit hour program. Coding professionals provide reliable and valid information for reimbursement and research. Hospitals or medical providers report coded data to insurance companies or the government for reimbursement of their expenses. New coders who earn the coding credential will demonstrate their competency in the field.

Coding professionals work in a multitude of settings throughout the healthcare industry including hospitals, physician offices and clinics, long-term care facilities, insurance companies, government agencies and home care providers.
