Certified Medical Reimbursement Specialist Program

A Continuing Education Program

Firm, consistent financial policies are a customer service that patients deserve and respect. - Cyndee Weston, Executive Director, American Medical Billing Association

What does a Medical Reimbursement Specialist do?

The work of a Medical Reimbursement Specialist is focused on the proper submission of health insurance claims, paper and electronic, and the follow up necessary to insure prompt receipt of payment for services. Specialists in this field are knowledgeable in claims management, patient’s rights and responsibilities, medical terminology, billing practices and regulatory procedures, including those related to Medicare and Medicaid.  Certification in this field is desirable because it ensures an employer that you are competent in all levels of medical billing and reimbursement.
