  • How to learn Medical   Billing ?
     

  • I have seen most of us asking how to learn Medical billing and become a Medical biller . Here, I have tried to cover most of the important things in the Medical billing that I have learned the hard way. Learning Medical billing  is a step by step process, so must learn it step by step. So this guide will also show how to learn Medical billing step by step. No one can become a complete Medical biller in 30 days, so it’s a journey. This guide will also show some best Medical billing tutorials.

 

  • Medical Billing : 

  • Medical billing is the process of submitting and following up on claims with health insurance companies in order to receive payment for services rendered by a healthcare provider. Medical billing translates a healthcare service into a billing claim. The responsibility of the medical biller in a healthcare facility is to follow the claim to ensure the practice receives reimbursement for the work the providers perform. A knowledgeable biller can optimize revenue performance for the practice.

  • Tools and  IDEs:

  • Previously we have eclipse with Android SDK bundle to develop applications.

  • Currently most of the companies using Official Android Studio for development.

  • I would suggest Android Studio as it has many internal tools to build applications fast and it will give an efficient final product.

  • You can download the latest Android studio from below link
    https://developer.android.com/studio/

  • Choosing which programming language(Java/Kotlin) to use:

  • Java is a first programming language used for developing Android applications. If you are a Java developer or if you know core java, you can start the android application development.

  • If you don’t know the Java programming language better start learning Kotlin. Because Kotlin is now official language for Android applications development.

  • Currently, we have the support of both(Java and Kotlin) languages for developing the applications.

  • Learning Kotlin is a big plus for future android developers.
