What does a Medical Coder/Biller/Office Specialist do?
Medical billers, coders, and office specialists are the healthcare professionals responsible for many important tasks in the medical office.

A medical coder codes individual patient services and diagnoses, and a medical biller uses those codes to request payment from the patient’s insurance company. These medical office specialists perform vital administrative tasks, freeing doctors and other medical staff to provide care to patients.
