Medical Office Coding

Program Overview

Coders must have a thorough knowledge of anatomy and medical terminology. Using codebooks, the medical coder assigns correct codes to record the service levels for the procedures performed and to account for supplies used to treat the patient during an encounter with the physician. Proper assignment of ICD-10-CM codes corresponds with the physician’s diagnoses and completes the “story” of the patient’s illness or injury. This curriculum is certified through the American Academy of Professional Coders and upon completion, the students may take the certification test to become a Certified Professional Coder (CPC).

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available through the Tri County Tech Foundation for Full Time & Flex programs, as well as some Fast Track programs. After you are accepted into a program, you will receive a financial assistance application. The form must be filled out and turned in with the most recent two months of pay stubs for every working member of your household.

Our main goal for financial assistance at Tri County Tech is to provide assistance for financially disadvantaged students who would be unable to get the education they deserve. Assistance consists of grants, scholarships, and employment. An individual might participate in one or more resources, depending upon eligibility and need.

We do not accept funds from FAFSA or PELL.
