What is the most important skill in medical billing and coding?
« on: September 22, 2016, 07:13:16 PM »
Hello to give you a little background, I am currently taking medical billing and coding course in college and I really enjoy it. I am learning a lot in school, but! how can I learn more or outsource to other information to master or get better at coding and billing? I am far from my clinical, but I just want to know what is the best skill to practice now? ICD 10, CPT, different softwares etc...

A lot depends on what you are leaning towards more...coding, or billing?

I definitely encourage you to research subjects on your own, because the one thing I hear time and again from new people in both billing and coding, who went to school for it, is how what they learned in school is so very different from actually doing the work "in the real world".
