The Medical Billing and Coding program offered by ACHT in Riverside and Huntington Park, CA is designed to provide graduates with the skills necessary to qualify for entry-level positions in the insurance billing & coding field. Students will learn medical terminology, medical office management & billing/coding. Work-site learning in a medical facility is a component of this course.

Medical coders are essential to medical record keeping. Medical coders assign alphanumeric codes to specific injuries, illnesses and medical procedures, using a system of medical coding consistent across the health care system. Doctors and hospitals use the codes for planning and internal data collection, while public agencies and insurance companies require codes to reimburse health care providers.
