About the Program
Our Medical Coding Program is a 44-credit fully online program that prepares you for coding certification and entry-level employment in a coding profession. A medical coding specialist assigns a universal numerical code to each symptom, treatment, diagnosis, and procedure. Knowledge of healthcare, disease process, and treatments is used to expertly determine these codes. These codes are used to report diseases and accidents and to inform third-party payers of services performed. Without knowledgeable medical coders, medical insurance claims could not be paid.
The cost for the program is $5928.48 plus online fees of $110.00. Tuition is paid quartely based on the number of credits taken. Students are also responsible for books with an estimated cost of approximately $650; this is not included in the cost of the program. See the MC Booklist for quarterly requirements in the right banner. It is your responsibility to purchase the required textbooks. A functional PC, access to the Internet, and Internet Explorer are necessary.
