New Comprehensive Medical Billing Study Course offered by medical billing experts Alice Scott, Michele Redmond and Merry Schiff designed specifically for the medical biller to understand complete practice management. Because it is designed by experts currently operating a billing service today the courses include important information often omitted from other courses.
In hiring employees who have graduated from medical billing courses for their medical billing business Alice and Michele found a disconnect between the classroom and workplace in the knowledge required for the actual work in the field of medical insurance billing. In many courses much time is spent on subjects not really relevant to billing insurance claims with information not required for the job of billing. Many courses lack or don’t go into enough depth on topics that are crucial to billing.
Partnering with teacher/author Merry Schiff and Linda Walker, Alice and Michele are bridging this gap with their new course designed to teach a student exactly what they need to move into the field of medical billing with the tools they need to succeed along with free support as they learn.
Merry found that in developing a course for a university she was limited in what she could offer and was directed as to what should be included in the course. She was unable to include topics she felt important to include. Merry is very passionate about this industry and wanted to create a course that included all aspects that a biller would need to succeed in this field. When Alice and Michele started their billing service back in the early 1990s Merry was one of their first mentors. Merry was interested in teaming up with Alice and Michele as she liked their writing style and ability to communicate with the reader in easy to understand language.
Linda Walker founded a medical billing business in 1997 after over 10 years experience as a claims examiner with major health insurance company. She is the founder of Practice Managers Resource & Networking Community with over 7000 subscribers. Linda also holds an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration, a paralegal certification along with various other designations in the health insurance industry. She is passionate about legal issues that affect healthcare and her primary focus is on consulting.
Alice and Michele used their experience with training employees combined with Merry’s experience in writing and teaching and Linda’s knowledge and background to develop a comprehensive course designed to cover exactly the knowledge required to start working in the medical billing field. They have the perfect combination of working knowledge and experience to develop a well rounded course designed to bring the student up to speed much quicker than other courses.
The first three courses will be released October 15, 2013
