How to correctly book patient appointments
How to correctly document patient information
How to correctly file medical insurance

Identify medical billing laws and regulations
Understand insurance coverage types and plans
Recognize billing modifiers
Assist in medical insurance fraud prevention
Properly administer reimbursements
Complete health insurance claims

Ensuring prescriptions are submitted correctly saves both the patient and pharmacy a lot of time. After this certification training you will be able to:
