Medical Billing & Coding: Dual CPB/CPC Preparation Self-Paced


Dual Certification in Medical Billing & Coding 

The CPC + CPB certification combines the CPC certification with the CPB (Certified Professional Biller). This dual certification makes you an expert in both medical billing and coding.Medical billing and coding certifications qualify students as healthcare business professionals and open doors to a variety of career opportunities in the healthcare industry.

Both medical coding and billing play integral roles in the healthcare revenue cycle. Medical coders identify billable information in the clinical documentation and translate that information into standardized codes. Medical billers use those codes to bill patients and create medical claims to submit to insurance companies.

Dual certification as a CPC and CPB validates expertise in pro-fee coding, as well as proper claim form preparation, submission and payment processes, regulatory compliance, and insurance requirements.

Many people choose to launch their healthcare careers with dual certification for advantages in employability and salary negotiations. Once earning both certifications, which takes 9 – 12 months when training in an online coding and billing program, students can begin successful careers working in physician offices, outpatient facilities, and laboratories.

Legacy has partnered with the AAPC.  AAPC sets the standard for medical billing and coding — and created the CPB® and CPC® certifications, which, with few exceptions, are prerequisite for the profession.
