Clackamas Community College offers medical billing courses
For those looking for a career in health care but don't want to give injections or draw blood, Clackamas Community College has a new medical billing and coding program that teaches how to work with physicians and assist patients in the front office.
"Students who complete our medical billing and coding program will leave qualified to work in the industry, earning between $42,000 and $51,000 annually," said CCC Health Sciences Director Jarett Gilbert. "In less than a year, we can prepare you for a profession in the health care industry."
The college's medical billing and coding program consists of three terms of study, including insurance billing, medical coding and other core classes. The new program's goal is to prepare students for the Certified Professional Biller (CPB) and Certified Professional Coder (CPC) national certification exams through the American Academy of Professional Coders.
The program will start winter term and classes begin Jan. 6. Applications for the program are due by 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2.
