Overview

Work closely with healthcare professionals as a medical billing specialist! At Lakewood College, we will give you the skills necessary to qualify for entry level employment with various healthcare facilities. A medical billing specialist works closely with insurance companies, health care providers, and patients. Medical billers compile data from medical coders and submit claims to insurance companies, then bill patients. As a medical biller you will also verify patients’ insurance coverage, handle collections on unpaid accounts, and manage your facilities accounts receivable reports. Lakewood College’s Medical Billing program will provide knowledge-based training and instruction on medical billing practices, EHR data keeping, and insurance policies.
