A Healthcare Reimbursement Specialist associate degree will show you how to perform a variety of degrees in a medical office.

Healthcare reimbursement specialists analyze complex medical records, assign codes and facilitate accurate reimbursement of medical services for healthcare providers. They also work to insure compliance with insurance carriers and government/regulatory agencies, and are advocates in preventing fraud and abuse in healthcare billing. Healthcare reimbursement specialists review medical records, assign codes, submit claims, manage rejected claims and perform chart audits. As a healthcare reimbursement specialist, you can work in various settings such as physician offices, hospitals, billing companies, insurance companies, regulatory agencies, etc. Our program can be completed in 18 months for students in our day classes, or in 27 months for those taking our evening courses.

Once you graduate from the Spencerian College Healthcare Reimbursement Specialist program, you'll have various options for certification. The program curriculum includes mock certification simulated exam experiences to assist you in skill development for your future exams. Certification would be an additional indication of your skills and professional abilities.
