Medical billing is a payment practice within the United States Health System. Medical billing translates a healthcare service into a billing claim. The responsibility of the medical biller in a healthcare facility is to follow the claim to ensure the practice receives reimbursement for the services performed either by a physician or a Healthcare provider. Billers often perform more customer-service oriented tasks and act as the financial waypoint liaising with patients, physicians, and insurance companies on claims submissions. Without billers, healthcare providers couldn’t be reimbursed for the procedures they perform.
Medical billing is a fast-growing, highly-rewarding part of the allied healthcare industry. You can enjoy competitive pay, varied career opportunities, and flexible work options. Completing a medical billing program prepares you for a vital role in healthcare, which spans across a wide variety of industry fields. There are opportunities within scientific services, hospitals (state, local, and private), medical centers, and you can also find home-based medical billing job opportunities within Acusis itself.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical billers fall within the category of medical records and health information technicians. Job growth in the field is projected to be about 13 percent through 2026, which is faster than average, compared to all other jobs. With increases in population, there will be a greater demand for medical services and for people who work in allied fields to support the medical services.
