Program Overview

At AlliedRx Institute of Healthcare, we offer a robust curriculum that covers all aspects of medical billing and coding. You will gain a deep understanding of medical terminology, procedure codes, and the intricacies of the healthcare industry. Our courses also introduce you to the Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS), an essential tool used in accurately assigning procedure codes for medical services.

Upon completion of our training program, you will be fully prepared to take the AAPC, NHA or AHIMA designated exams. This comprehensive exam evaluates your knowledge and skills in medical coding, including accurately assigning procedure codes, understanding medical histories, and navigating the healthcare common procedure coding system. With our rigorous training, you'll have the confidence and expertise to excel in the exam and launch your career.

What are you going to learn?

  • Medical Terminology and Anatomy: To accurately code medical procedures and diagnoses, students must have a foundational understanding of medical terminology and the human body's anatomy and physiology. This knowledge ensures that coders can understand medical records, physician notes, and other documentation to assign the correct codes.
  • ICD and CPT Coding Systems: The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) are the primary coding systems used in healthcare. Students will learn how to navigate these systems, understand code updates, and apply the appropriate codes based on the medical services provided.
  • Healthcare Reimbursement and Insurance: Medical billing specialists need to understand the intricacies of healthcare reimbursement processes. This includes knowledge of different insurance plans (like HMOs, PPOs, and Medicare), the claim submission process, and how to handle denied or rejected claims to ensure that healthcare providers receive appropriate compensation for their services.
  • Regulatory and Compliance Standards: The healthcare industry is governed by various regulations to ensure patient safety and privacy. Students will learn about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its importance in protecting patient information. They'll also be educated on the importance of accuracy and ethics in coding to avoid fraudulent claims and ensure compliance with industry standards.
