Medical Insurance and Pharmacology KMCB
This course covers two important areas of knowledge that are required for employment in the medical coding and billing field: medical insurance and pharmacology. Medical Insurance helps us pay for office visits, tests, drugs, and surgical procedures. Understanding how medical insurance works will not only help those who are employed in the healthcare industry but every person who needs medical care!
Familiarity with different types of drugs (or pharmaceuticals) and how they work is the second area we will cover in this course. We are given prescriptions for drugs to help us when we are ill or have other medical problems. Medical coders and billers need to know what the different types of drugs are and how these affect the coding and billing process.
