You can register and pay for multiple courses upfront or you can register and pay as you go. As a medical coder, you read patient charts, electronic health records, physician notes, nurses' notes and assign the proper codes to any medical procedure and diagnosis. You are responsible for translating medical procedures into a coded form for reimbursement purposes from insurance companies. TTC’s curriculum teaches toward two national certifications: AAPC credential CPC (Certified Professional Coder) and AHIMA credential CCA or CCS (Certified Coding Associate or Certified Coding Specialist). You are encouraged to pursue both national certifications after successfully completing the program. Learn More >
