Description

This course will teach you how Administrative Medical Assistants are versatile and valuable healthcare team members who handle a broad range of duties. You will also be prepared for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) national certification exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).


Administrative medical assistants are skilled multi-taskers who direct the flow of patients through an office. Effective patient flow allows the practice to operate efficiently, increase revenue, and provide a positive patient experience. Their duties can include scheduling appointments, entering demographic and insurance information into practice software, managing patient check-in, and check-out, answering phone calls, filing and retrieving paper records, maintaining electronic records, composing correspondence, performing daily financial practices, assigning medical codes, and processing insurance claims.


Medical billers and coders are also in high demand. In addition to providing the knowledge and skills you will need to become a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant, this course also offers valuable training in legal, ethical, and regulatory concepts central to this field, including HIPAA compliance, official coding guidelines, and third-party payer requirements. You will understand all phases of the revenue cycle—from patient registration through medical coding, claims submission, reimbursement, and collections. You will also learn medical terminology as you study word parts and the structures and functions of the human body. Also presented are the disorders and medical procedures common to each body system, including musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, nervous, endocrine, integumentary, genitourinary, lymphatic, and immune.


Upon completing this course, you should be well prepared to find your place in this rewarding healthcare career. You will be prepared for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) national certification exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) and receive a voucher that covers the exam fee. You will also be able to choose a voucher for the professional certification that best aligns with your interests and career goals related to medical billing and coding.
