Dallas Medical Billing And Coding Jobs Overview
Medical billers and coders keep medical practices, clinics, and other healthcare providers in business by making sure bills are correctly coded and then paid. Medical billing and coding is an exact science. For example, did you know medical treatment after being bitten by a pig (once) is vastly different than a trip to the doctor for being struck by a pig during a second encounter? Professionals with medical billing and coding jobs know the two diagnoses are vastly different to an insurance company. So much so that if the wrong code (W55.41XA vs. w55.42XD) is entered on a medical bill, the patient won't be covered, and the medical practice will not be paid.
Medical billing and coding jobs are found in medical practices, insurance companies, and organizations that specialize in billing. Along with determining the correct code for medical services, a medical biller and coder prepares invoices for payment and insurance claims, tracks those payments, and corrects rejected claims. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment in medical billing and coding jobs to increase by 8% over the next 10 years.
