Job Description for Medical Biller

Medical billers are responsible for the billing and collection of medical debts. They work in an administrative capacity to ensure that patients are billed swiftly, accurately and with as much clarity as possible. Every time a patient receives medical attention, the appropriate payments are tallied up by the biller and issued in the appropriate format (by mail, online, or a combination of both). It's very important for medical billers to be able to understand the varying complexities of medical billing; this extends to different types of insurance plans, government assisted programs (Medicaid, Medicare, etc.), and how other discounts are applied to different groups of people. A strong understanding in this field will ensure that the billing is accurate, and easily fixed in the event of an error.
