Clackamas Community College

Medical Billing and Coding, Certificate


Looking for a career in healthcare but don’t want to give injections or draw blood? Work with physicians and help patients in the front office with the Medical Billing and Coding certificate from Clackamas Community College.

Medical Coders analyze the doctor’s documentation using specific guidelines to determine the correct codes for billing the doctor’s services. The insurance biller will apply healthcare laws to create and submit the claims for the doctor’s work. The insurance biller will work with the insurance companies and patients to track the claims through payment of services rendered.

The work of the coder and insurance biller can produce prompt and proper payments to your doctor and lower their costs by applying current health insurance regulations and practices to healthcare billing, coding, and reimbursement. After completing this program, students will be exposed to the knowledge to prepare them to sit for the national certification exams through the AAPC: The Certified Professional Biller (CPB) and Certified Professional Coder (CPC).
