Professional Medical Coding and Billing

James Madison University Outreach & Engagement has partnered with Career Step to help students train for a rewarding new career in Professional Medical Coding and Billing. The Professional Medical Coding and Billing non-credit program helps students prepare for the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) or Certified Professional Coder (CPC) certification exams. Topics studied include healthcare information management, reimbursement methodologies, medical terminology, anatomy, pathophysiology, pharmacology, and current code sets. Students practice their coding skills in an extensive practical section to gain valuable hands-on experience before graduation. In addition to one-on-one support from experienced instructors throughout the course and access to personalized graduate support after graduation, students receive textbooks, industry codebooks, access to an online reference library, and a voucher for one of the national certification exams.
