Job Description for Certified Medical Coder (CMC)

Most of the transactions and payments processed by a hospital or clinic do not involve direct payments from patients. Rather, these institutions rely on payments from private and public insurance companies. The key to making these transactions run smoothly is having procedures, referrals, and lab work properly coded and classified so that insurers pay promptly. While an individual doctor’s office in a smaller practice may delegate this responsibility to an office manager, larger clinics or hospitals often hire certified medical coders (CMCs) to perform this work.
