Medical Administrative Coder Programs

If you are fascinated with the medical field and the effects the process of diseases, conditions and illnesses have on the human body and you like research, analysis and connecting the dots, then a career as a medical administrative coder could be for you. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the medical billing and coding field is expected to grow 21 percent between now and 2020. Graduates of our program are in high demand and the demand is only expected to increase over time – in fact, many students secure employment before graduating.

Employers are looking for highly skilled coders, which you will be after completing our program. Your specialized training includes medical ethics, records management, medical terminology, human anatomy, health insurance, medical billing, medical transcription, coding and Medical MS Office Suites. Plus, you’ll have a significant advantage when it’s time to take your certification, as our program follows the curriculum of the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC). AAPC is the world’s largest training and credentialing organization for the business of healthcare and BTC is the only program in Wisconsin to partner with AACP.

With a focus on out-patient coding, you will be prepared for a career working in physician practices, large healthcare and allied health organizations such as clinics, hospitals and foundations, insurance companies, medical publishers, research organizations and medical product manufacturers.

Most of the Medical Administrative Coder program courses are offered through MyEdChoice, which means you can choose from three different ways to attend each week/day of the classes including in the classroom at a set time, video conferencing (referred to as ITV) or online.
