What is the difference between medical billing and coding?
Medical billers and medical coders work together closely. In fact, some medical offices combine the two positions. Most commonly, medical coders review provided medical services and identify an appropriate code. Medical billers use this code and submit claims to insurance companies. They then bill patients for the remainder of the liability that is not covered by insurance, creating repayment plans if necessary.

Are there opportunities for advancement as a medical biller?
Medical billers most commonly work 40-hour weeks. For those willing to work during off-hours, there are greater opportunities for advancement. Typically, medical billers advance into positions as office managers or supervisors. They can also become directors of entire billing departments. These positions often require working morning or evening shifts.

How can I become a certified medical biller?
There are two major organizations that offer certification as a medical biller—the American Medical Billing Association (the AMBA) and the Medical Association of Billers (MAB). Membership to both requires fees ($325 and $199, respectively). Certificates are mailed upon passing a comprehensive exam and are good for one year. Both organizations have guidelines for recertification.
