Because Patient Care Doesn't End After the Procedure

National College's Medical Billing and Coding program is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to perform the functions of a medical biller and coder and to understand the professional and ethical responsibilities.

Graduates of our Medical Billing and Coding program will be positioned to work as either a medical biller or a medical coder. They may also choose to incorporate both career paths as some employers seek one person who is capable of performing both functions.

Students completing the Medical Billing and Coding program are eligible to take a certification exam as a Medical Biller through the American Association of Medical Billers (AAMB) or as a Certified Professional Coder (CPC) or Certified Professional Coder-Hospital (CPC-H) administered through the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).
