    Medical Coding, One of America’s Fastest Growing Jobs

    Bellevue College Continuing Education has recently partnered with Career Step to offer Professional Medical Billing and Coding. Our program was built by AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainers and other experts with decades of experience to ensure you gain the skills you need to excel in this field

    Medical Coding is one of the fastest growing jobs in the United States. Currently only 49% of healthcare employers reported being adequately staffed with medical coders. The most common reason is the lack of qualified candidates.

    A qualified Medical Coder can be expected to earn (according to the national average) about $47,870 annually*. You will be part of a fast growing industry with potential for growth.

    To become a qualified coder you need to:

    1. Find an AHIMA approved curriculum
    2. Get ICD 10 focused training
    3. Get prepared for industry certification
    4. Hands-on training
    5. Practical experience
    6. Affordable tuition
    7. Graduate support and counseling

    At Bellevue College Continuing Education we offer all of this. Through our program you will graduate prepared to earn your Certified Professional Coder (CPC) or your Certified Coding Associate (CCA) credentials.

    The medical billing and coding training program is designed to be completed in 4 months of full-time study. However, the online format allows you to study on your own schedule and your own pace, so your enrollment includes 12 months of program access in case you need extra time.
