Why did we revise the exam?

  • We evaluated the job (by way of a thorough Job Task Analysis) and confirmed that the best billing and coding specialists have a foundational understanding of both topics. Many certifications focus either on Billing OR Coding, but not both. Our exam gives nearly equal representation to these two key areas.
  • This new exam validates specialized knowledge in a wide range of billing AND coding activities, covering the application of coding plus giving an understanding of the complete Revenue Cycle, which is a critical component to understanding all financial transactions in the medical office.

The revenue cycle is what impacts the revenue stream for the practice. In order to decrease billing and coding error, you must know where in the revenue cycle the error occurred and take the initiative to correct the error and continue with the billing process.

Why is it important to know both Billing AND Coding? 

  • Billing and coding are each their own separate processes,  yet each function is equally important. Medical coding involves extracting pertinent information from the medical records and clinical documentation with accuracy to be billed, and medical billing uses those codes to create insurance claims and bills for patients.
  • When a specialist has knowledge and expertise in both billing and coding, rather than just one or the other, they are multi-skilled and an asset to any medical office. 


Why is Revenue Management important?

With an effective RCM system, healthcare organizations can keep costs down and focus on improving patient outcomes. When an integrated billing and coding system is employed, care providers can:
  • Achieve higher rates of clean (error-free) claims
  • Have fewer past-due patient payments
  • Bring in higher revenue and profits
