Why should I choose this program?

Does this describe you?

I am very interested in the healthcare field; however, I don’t want to provide direct patient care. I am very detail-oriented and like searching for facts. I also have a keen eye for finding information in reading material. I like looking up medical codes and procedures, and I feel satisfaction with obtaining all necessary information about a procedure or diagnosis, as well as obtaining maximum reimbursement for my employer. I prefer to work on a reimbursement case, while others around me are providing patient care. I would like to first obtain a certificate as a Medical Insurance Specialist. then, I may decide to move onto an associate degree in this area.

If this sounds like you, then you are the perfect candidate for the Medical Insurance Specialist (MIS) certificate.

Medical assisting appeals to a large population of practitioners, due to the flexibility of full time, and part time opportunities, and having the ability to work a traditional work-week schedule from 9-5 on Monday through Friday, as well as having weekends and holidays off.
