Healthcare Reimbursement (Associate's)
A rewarding career in healthcare doesn't necessarily mean providing patient care. Professionals in medical reimbursement handle functions that are vital to the health of any medical practice: billing, coding and working with insurance companies to achieve the right financial reimbursements.
Virginia College's associate's degree in Healthcare Reimbursement is offered in a convenient online format and designed to help prepare you for a career in this growing field.
This program focuses on the fundamentals of medical office protocol along with specialized skills. Classes include training in Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and Health Care Financing Administration Common Procedural Coding System (HCPCS).
In addition to your classroom experiences, you will also be placed in an externship for on-the-job training. You'll be supervised by a physician, nurse, or health services professional and learn the billing and coding process from the working perspective.
What does employer Gail Wilson say about Virginia College students with this kind of training?
"Because of the training they have received at Virginia College and the knowledge they have learned, they can step right in and do the jobs that we request them to do at the office."
