Our Medical Billing and Coding Professional Development Program is completely self-paced, so it can be done around YOUR schedule. It is designed to ensure your complete understanding of the field so that you can not only pass tests but complete medical claims for our clients.
Traditional courses run in the thousands of dollars, and often take a year or more to complete, plus they do not provide you with work after completion. That is what sets us apart, here at BlackThumb. We have work waiting for you to finish your program so that you can jump right in.*
All of our positions are entry-level positions, so you do not need a degree to become certified. We assist every step of the way throughout your certification process and you can begin completing claims immediately following your successful completion of the program, which typically only takes 4-6 months.
The need for medical coding specialists will grow 15% in the next few years. These certified specialists earn an average of $39,180-$57,680 per year. These specialists are vital to the medical field and there is always more need than certified specialists. Healthcare is one of the few “recession-proof” career fields, so you will be able to continue working for many years to come in your new career.
There is upward mobility in that you can continue to progress and increase your certifications. For example, Certified Professional Coding Instructors (CPC-I) earn an average of $76,021 per year.
