Medical Biller/Receptionist AGS Degree

The medical biller/receptionist curriculum prepares the student to answer telephones, route calls, greet visitors, respond to inquiries from the public, perform medical insurance billing and provide information about the healthcare facility. Job opportunities are in medical offices, hospitals, clinics, health-related facilities, urgent care centers, and surgical centers.

Any student wishing to pursue an associate degree can apply all 16 credits from the Medical Biller/Receptionist Skills Certificate toward an Associate in General Studies (AGS) degree. Depending on the desired career path, discuss other options for an associate degree with an academic advisor. All program required courses must have been completed with a grade of 2.0 or better.

Not all courses are offered each semester.  Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
