Medical Billing and Coding students, seniors Areanna Saldana, Josseling Gutierrez, Vanessa Villegas, Jesse Flores, and Veronica Meza, passed their certification exam with 100 percent passing rate. The students took the 3 hour test on April 26.

“Before the exam, I was freaking out all day and I was really scared because I realized how important this test was,” Josseling said. “When I realized I passed, I was extremely happy and felt so proud of what I accomplished.”

By passing the exam, the students now have a national certification as Insurance and Coding Specialists and have the options of working in a healthcare facility, clearing house, or medical insurance company.

“Taking this test has given me a chance to have a professional job at a young age and to be a financially independent woman,” Areanna said.

The exam tested their knowledge and skills in the areas of medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, as well as diagnostic and procedural coding, insurance claim processing, and medical billing procedures. It also tested their knowledge in accounting and medical law.

“I was so very proud of my students as they, one by one, walked out of the testing area with a smile on their face, a sigh of relief, and a great sense of accomplishment,” Medical Billing and Coding Instructor Olivia Garza said. “It was a true testament that hard work and dedication pays off.”
