The Medical Coding – ICD-10 program prepares students to work as healthcare professionals. Medical coding professionals keep records, calculate patient charges, and review files.

Job opportunities are prevalent in this area. Effective October 2014, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will require that the standard ICD-9 code sets, which are used in medical billing and coding to report health care diagnoses and procedures, be replaced by ICD-10. This move from ICD-9 to ICD-10 will have a significant impact on healthcare providers and on the process by which they receive reimbursement. The adoption of ICD-10 will create enormous challenges for the U.S. healthcare system and the requirements of medical coding.
