Cape May County Campus Offers Medical Billing and Coding Classes

September 4, 2008

For the first time, Atlantic Cape Community College will offer Medical Billing and Coding classes at its Cape May County Campus.

This comprehensive course, which previously had only been offered at ACCC's Health Professions Institute in Atlantic City, will help prepare Cape May County students for the growing field of billing and coding in a medical office setting.

The 180-hour course is divided into two 90-hour modules running 6-9 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, Sept. 29-Jan. 26 (Module I), and Feb. 9-May 20 (Module II). The evening format is designed to accommodate working people who wish to advance or change their careers.

In addition to learning the technical and clerical aspects of medical billing and coding, students also will study anatomy, physiology, medical terminology and medical law and ethics.

At the completion of the course, students will be eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association Certified Billing and Coding Specialist certification exam.

Students must attend both modules to attain certification.

The Cape May County Campus is at 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.
