Medical Coding and Billing (Associate of Applied Science)

Online Medical Coding and Billing (Associate of Applied Science) Degree Program

Earning your Medical Coding and Billing degree from Grantham University can help launch your career in the healthcare arena. In most healthcare facilities, patient records are carefully maintained by trained specialists in medical coding and billing. With a specialized degree in this field required for this career path, Grantham’s program will arm you with the preparation you need.

Through our 100% online learning environment, you will learn to use the standard medical coding system, ICD-10. This system ensures compliance with federal regulations, verifies that the bills can be read by medical professionals everywhere, and meets practical insurance requirements.

Medical billing is considered to be a sub-specialty of the general discipline of medical coding. Many schools offer medical billing training all by itself. However, schools that train in both billing and coding in a single program, like Grantham, are generally considered to offer a more complete education, because medical coding is the first step in the medical billing process.

Grantham University allows you to study, test, research and perform all medical billing and coding functions completely online. This is a wonderful opportunity if you work at home or need to conduct studies online, as you will never need to enter a physical classroom or conform to a set schedule.
