Medicare billing certificate offered

May 2, 2012

The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) now offers a certificate program for health care staff members who submit claims to Medicare Part B.

The Web-based program provides an overview of Medicare Part B as well as in-depth information on Medicare billing. It includes specifics on claim filing for various types of health care practitioners.

The course takes an estimated 21 hours to complete, according to the CMS.

Participation in the program involves taking a series of web-based training courses and reading required materials. A list of additional resources is provided.

Participants who score 75 percent or higher on an online assessment test will receive a Certificate in Medicare Billing for Part B Providers from the CMS.

The CMS offers a similar certificate program for Medicare Part A billing.

To participate in the Medicare Part B billing certificate program, visit the Medicare Learning Network website (www.CMS.gov/MLNproducts) and click on the “Web-Based Training Modules” link under the “Related Links Inside CMS” heading.
