He had attended MTTI as an auto mechanic student about 5 years earlier.
I had worked as a HUCNA (Health Unit Coordinator) and a Certified Nursing Assistant on an oncology unit.
We sometimes had to discharge patients because the insurance company would not cover additional days. The patient would then be required to pay out-of-pocket or leave the hospital.
I enrolled in the Medical Billing & Coding program to learn more about medical insurance.
Everyone was very warm and welcoming, and also very helpful. From day one, when I visited the school, through the interview process—and even on the first day of school—I felt right at home.
The other students in my class had nothing but positive comments about the school, the teacher, and the Medical Billing and Coding program.
Even with my medical background, the course wasn’t easy. From the first day of class, Ms. Roc instilled in us that if we dedicated ourselves to our studies, we would pass the class.
She also drilled into us all of the information we needed to work in the medical billing & coding industry, and to prepare for the Professional Coders exam. After class ended at 3 pm, if we had a question, Ms. Roc was available by phone, email or text.
I attended class fulltime—five days a week—plus studied at home. It was challenging, but manageable.
At school, my classmates helped one another. At home, my family took care of the household while I dedicated myself to my studies.
PMG appreciated my professionalism and work ethic; my years of medical background was a plus. PMG also liked that I was trained at MTTI; they have had good experiences hiring medical billing and coding graduates from the school.
Working as a Billing Specialist, I am able to use all of the skills and knowledge that I learned at MTTI.
PMG treats me like I’ve been a valued employee at the company for many years.
MTTI prepared me with the knowledge of billing, coding and office administration. Best and most exciting was learning all about medical insurance, hospital billing and coding, and how to work with Excel spreadsheets.
Having a good knowledge of coding enables me to work through appeals, charge entries and payment exceptions.
Instructors and Staff nurture you. You feel like you have been adopted into a family. Even after graduation they still reach out to see how you’re doing.
In October, my step-daughter will be starting school in MTTI’s Medical Assistant program.
The funny thing is that, even without reminding them where I went to school, my employers can tell. They know, because of the knowledge and skills I bring to my position, that I attended school at MTTI.
