Billing, LLC, announced today its Junior Billing Associate (JBA)
program to help teach, train, and mentor individuals entering the
medical billing and coding field. The training, which provides 4 weeks
of hands-on learning, bridges the gap between classroom learning and
real-world medical billing and coding. The participants gain experience
by engaging in the health care revenue cycle.
jobs are expected to grow faster than any other industry - roughly
22%, or 3.2 million new jobs, by 2018. As baby boomers age, healthcare
professionals will become more in-demand than ever. Despite demand
increasing, most healthcare providers report challenges in obtaining
reimbursement from third party payers due to inadequate training of
billing and coding professionals.
"We have an epidemic here. The billing and reimbursement process in
health care is extremely complex and there are no national standards or
health centers report collecting less than 75% of possible
reimbursements. For us, at Synergy Billing, we have not been able to
hire qualified candidates fast enough. Since the training doesn't exist
we have created our own. We know it works because we are using it. I see
our certification becoming the industry standard," reports M.
Jayson Meyer, CEO, of Synergy Billing.
In addition to the health care revenue cycle, Synergy Billing's training
places a special emphasis on Federally
Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). The Affordable Care Act identifies
these safety net providers as a critical piece of health care delivery
in the United States. Synergy Billing's Director of Training and
Mourino, leads the initiative helping participants to gain
healthcare knowledge and experience.
"Schools and specialized programs teach theorized knowledge, here we
give participants what employers are looking for, experience. Fifty
percent of participants end up working right here at Synergy Billing,"
explains Marlegny Mourino.
