Medical Billing and Coding

Medical Records Training

The HEARTBEAT of the Allied Health field!

Do you want a career in the healthcare industry, but you don’t want to deal with bodily fluids? Do you like working with a computer and enjoy interacting with people?

Then you’re an ideal candidate for Pennsylvania Institute of Technology’s Medical Billing and Coding Certificate Program.
What is Medical Billing and Coding?
The medical billing and coding department is the backbone of every doctor’s office. Physicians and medical coding specialists use a set of specific codes that correspond with patients’ diagnoses and procedures. Using these codes, medical billers are able to charge patients and their insurance companies for services. Physicians need support staffs who understand how crucial these skills are to the office’s success.

If you are detail-oriented, if you love to multi-task, and if you are cool under pressure, then you’ll be successful in medical billing and coding.
What kind of career will I have?
The medical coding and billing field constantly needs professionals to support the healthcare industry. In these positions, you will ensure the billing process goes smoothly, which helps patients, physicians, and insurance providers.

P.I.T. students with a certificate and/or an associate degree will be able to find work in a variety of rewarding healthcare settings, including:
  • Doctor’s offices
