Description

A medical biller is responsible for submitting medical claims to insurance companies and payers such as Medicare and Medicaid. It is a position that is critical for the financial cycle of all health care providers, from single-provider practices through large medical centers. It requires attention to detail and experience with the electronic and paper systems used in medical billing to make sure a facility receives the highest reimbursement possible for a claim. Employment is expected to increase by 14% from 2016 – 2026 with a 2018 median annual wage of $40,350 (Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Projections).


Medical Billing versus Medical Coding

Because these positions work in tandem with one another, some small offices hire people to do both jobs. The primary difference, however, is that medical coders translate medical services into codes, while medical billers translate the claims from these codes into reimbursements from insurance and patients. Medical coders work with physicians and health care facilities while billers work with insurance companies and patients in addition to physicians and health care administrators.
