Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend it the professor was very engaging during this course and made the course seem so much more interesting thing I thought it would be.
The profitability of a health care provider is dependent on the organization’s ability to operate efficiently with respect to handling patients at the time of delivery of service. Although the direct care with doctors and support staff have a lot to do with the patient experience, coordinating staff and handling the billing process with the various payors effectively is paramount to being successful. It is important that all of the necessary and required information is obtained upfront from the patient to deliver the best care and services. This starts during the patient registration process. Even though much of this effort is behind the scenes for patients, the billing for reimbursement is vital to maintaining a reasonable revenue cycle. This is accomplished with a solid understanding of how claims are coded, processed, and resubmitted in working with the different payors. In addition, there are various rules and regulations that must be followed in handling patient information during the registration process and the billing cycle.

Advice for students:
Connect with instructors early. I know initially for me, I didn't contact my instructor because I felt like the course was going to be really easy for me. But after multiple writing assignments were returned to me to revise, I quickly changed my approach to the course and reached out for help. Once I started coordinating with my instructor, I realized I needed to change my writing style. You have to really stay in contact it's extremely important.
