Medical Coding and Medical Billing

Medical billing and medical coding are two distinct jobs. The health care industry relied upon skilled and qualified medical insurance billers and coders to accurately record, register and track patient accounts. Every duty performed in a medical office has a particular code assigned to it and needs to be coded properly in order for proper billing. There are specific medical codes for symptoms, medications and diagnoses. Medical billers are responsible for making sure everyone is being billed correctly.
