Accurate processing of health insurance claims has become very rigorous even as health insurance plan options have rapidly expanded. These changes, combined with modifications in state and federal regulations affecting the health insurance industry, are a constant challenge to health care personnel. Those personnel responsible for processing health insurance claims require thorough instruction in all aspects of medical insurance, including plan options, payer requirements, state and federal regulations, abstracting of source documents, accurate completion of claims, and coding of diagnoses and procedures/services. Instructional Goals and Purposes: The purposes of this course are to review and expand information about major insurance programs and federal health care legislation; to provide a reinforcement of knowledge learned in other courses of national diagnosis and procedure coding systems; and to simplify the process of completing health insurance claim forms. Learning Objectives: 1. Explore career opportunities and job responsibilities in medical coding and billing. 2. Identify and explain the impact of significant events in the history of health care reimbursement. 3. Explain the role of managed care organizations in health care. 4.
