Do you want to pursue a career in the business side of health care? As a health claims specialist, you will work in medical billing and coding, and prepare, submit, and process medical insurance claims.
In the Health Claims Specialist Plus program you will also take courses in medical billing and coding, medical office administration and more.
In addition to processing routine claims, a health claims specialist might also investigate pending claims and resolve medical billing discrepancies.
