Medical Billing Training and Certification
Medical billing is a rapidly growing healthcare profession. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare industry is expected to need 21% more medical billers by 2020. The main reason is because physician reimbursement is undergoing a dramatic change accompanied by new government regulations. The traditional fee-for-service coding and billing is being replaced with Quality Payment Programs under MACRA. Though these changes may seem intimidating at first, MMI is here to help you every step of the way.
Medical billers are very important in a physician office setting. The medical billers are the people who are mainly responsible for pulling money into a practice by managing the revenue cycle. They do the work of submitting and following up on all the claims with health insurance companies in order to receive payment for the services rendered. If the person in this position is not trained and certified, the medical practice could be missing out on significant revenue. Being a certified medical biller shows your knowledge and skills in the industry and billing cycle, which in turn gives physicians the confidence that their practice is being run efficiently.
MMI offers a nationally-recognized online Registered Medical Billing (RMB) certification specifically for the outpatient and physician-office settings. Here you’ll find the industry’s most up-to-date coursework, credentialing, and certification exams to fuel your billing career.
