Health Care Services Coding and Reimbursement, Certificate

Certificate in Health Care Services Coding and Reimbursement (275003C)

The Health Care Services Coding and Reimbursement certificate is designed to provide graduates an in-depth understanding of how health care services are reimbursed by insurance. In the case of those graduates who will bill for their services, that understanding will make them more attractive to health care system employers. In the case of graduates seeking to move into a managerial role in their department or operational setting, that understanding is fundamental to maximizing the department's revenue stream, again making the UA graduate a more attractive employee manager.
