What is medical billing?

Medical billing is the process of creating and submitting claims to insurance companies in order to receive payment for health care services provided. The medical biller works with patients, health care providers (such as physicians, hospitals, physical therapists and outpatient facilities), and health payers to negotiate and arrange for payments due. It’s also the job of the medical biller to ensure that the data on an insurance claim is accurate and that the claim is adjudicated correctly.
