“”
Carrington offers a really supportive environment, and that support continues even after you graduate. They were really committed to helping me find a job after I graduated. I even did a mock interview session with my Career Services Advisor so I was better prepared for job interviews. That kind of support really made a big difference. It helped boost my self-confidence. When I received four job offers within two weeks, I was so grateful.

Career Opportunities

A Medical Coder translates patient records into various languages, while a Medical Biller submits those codes to various agencies for payment. The Medical Biller needs to understand how to read medical records and, like the medical coder, be familiar with the various code languages. Medical billers must also keep track of claims to make sure they are appropriately processed by health care payers to make sure the medical practice receives reimbursement. This involves precise record keeping.1

Medical billers’ duties may vary depending on where they work. They can include both front- and back-office jobs such as gathering patient information, verifying health plan coverage, checking prior authorizations, collecting copays from patients, and ensuring medical codes are accurate before sending them to payers.1
