Certified Medical Reimbursement Specialist

Understanding the language of claims

Trained to explain

If you’ve ever received an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) in the mail, you know how puzzling they can be to read. Is this for the lab test or just the office visit? What did my insurance cover? How much do I owe?

After completing our Certified Medical Reimbursement Specialist program, you’ll be the one who can answer those and other questions, whether asked by a patient or a health care provider.
