Certified Billing & Coding Exam and Prep

This accredited certification exam proves competency in the knowledge and tasks most important for an entry-level billing and coding specialist and is accompanied by robust CBCS Exam Preparation materials designed to keep students both informed and engaged.

Three Coding manuals are required to take the CBCS exam; CPT Professional Edition | HCPCS Level II | ICD-10-CM. Please review the Candidate Handbook pg. 27 or our FAQs to ensure your learners bring in the correct year of manuals—this is important, or they will not be allowed to take the exam.

How is our exam different?

  • 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.
  • The 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. Sandra Brooks, MBC Program Director, Fortis College EDU


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 Cycle 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
