Medical Coding and Billing - Health Information Technology

Start your career in MCB-HIT today.

The MCB-HIT program is offered in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston Northwest, Houston Southwest and San Antonio.

With a career in Medical Coding and Billing – Health Information Technology (MCB-HIT), you can obtain the independence, professional environment, and mentally stimulating responsibilities you have been seeking. When you choose to get your MCB-HIT training from The College of Health Care Professions, you will be poised to join motivated health care teams at hospitals, nursing facilities, physician offices and many more.

When you get your MCB-HIT training from CHCP, you attend an externship site, where you will receive hands-on administrative training in the coding and billing of medical records and managing that health information for health care professionals and patients. Students will also review necessary competencies required to take an entry level certification exam in coding and medical records.  After you graduate, you will be qualified to collect and organize medical information and data from patients, physicians, and other health care providers.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical records and Health Information Technicians is expected to increase by 21% through 2020.* With a career as a MCB-HIT professional, you will be responsible for completing medical billing forms, filing medical insurance claims, both manually and by automation, practical application of CPT-4, ICD-9/10 and HCPCS codes as well as record-keeping practices for both the hospital and physician offices, procedures in content and filing of patient medical records, and use of a variety of filing systems which include alpha and numeric.
