Description

Med Pro Medical Billing Online - 2 year's

Medical Billers assemble, organize and evaluate medical records and charts for completeness and accuracy. They ensure that all forms are properly identified, signed, and that all necessary information is in the computer. Once all of the relevant data are correctly assembled, the Medical Billing Specialist then bills the insurance company or Federal Government for the services and goods rendered while treating the patient.

Clearly, the Medical Biller is a vital part of a private practice or hospital environment. The Medical Biller is responsible for making sure payments are made by insurance companies and that cash-flow is maintained. Without this function there is no practice or hospital!

A Medical Billing professional can also be referred to as a Medical Reimbursement Specialist or Health Insurance Specialist.
