Medical coding professionals play a vital role across the healthcare industry!
Each time a patient receives treatment, a detailed record is maintained. Coders are then responsible for assigning a code(s) to each specific diagnosis or procedure and ensuring that the information is communicated clearly, accurately and efficiently between healthcare providers and insurance payers.
In the Kentucky Online Medical Coding program, students will learn about the business side of healthcare, the human body, and its diseases and cover ICD-10-CM coding, Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS), and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) coding.
