Scranton, PA (PRWEB) January 05, 2014
Distance learning school, Stratford Career Institute, has revised their Medical Billing Specialist course. Stratford had updated three of the four modules included in the popular home study course.
The new modules cover the following topics: health insurance, procedural terminology, insurance claims, managed care, and types of insurance coverage plans.
Stratford says many of the same topics were also part of the previous course curriculum, but that the textbooks have been modernized to reflect more recent changes in healthcare and billing.
“The healthcare industry is continuously changing, so it is imperative that we keep up with the latest information and procedures,” said Dr. Claude Major, Director of Education for Stratford Career Institute.
The course begins with an overview of basic medical terminology, then goes over health insurance terminology, ICD coding guidelines, claims, Medicare, Medicaid, fraud and more.
Similar to Stratford’s popular high school diploma program, the Medical Billing Specialist course can be completed entirely at home through guided, independent study.
Students can complete exams online, through the mail or in combination. Instructors are available throughout the entire course via e-mail and toll-free phone. Stratford’s online eService allows students to track shipments, make tuition payments, use the online library, and more.
