Insurance Coding

VC's Workforce & Continuing Education Department offers training in Insurance Coding. Insurance coders translate a patient’s medical diagnosis into universal codes so that hospitals and insurance agencies can communicate about the specific medical services performed.

This seven-week course will teach you how to code using different terminologies and classifications in order to process claims accurately. This course prepares you for a career in the health information field, enabling you to properly code ICD-9 and CPT insurance forms for reimbursement of medical services.

Coursework includes emphasis on accurate insurance coding and medical office procedures for payment/reimbursement by the patient or a third party and prevention of insurance fraud. You will also learn to identify different nomenclatures and classification systems and assign codes using appropriate rules, principles, guidelines, and conventions.

Upon successful course completion, you will be ready to work in a medical office environment and be able to describe and explain the differences or similarities among insurance plans. The hands-on clinical component that is required will also provide valuable experience and help prepare you for a career in medical coding.
