    Medical billing programs can mean either of two different things. Firstly it can mean programs of study in this vocational field. Secondly it can mean computer programs (software) used in this field.

    Study programs in this field can be online, or in a classroom setting, or sometimes both. The training can help both beginners and more advanced students pass the certificates they need to further their career in this field. There are a wide variety of courses available, some for those who wish to get certification for their existing skills and knowledge in this field.

    Some medical bills are sent via a clearing house, rather than direct from the medical facility to the insurance company. This can help prevent errors, reduce the amount of rejected claims as well as speeding up the payment process. Clearing house submission can be done by some software, as well as direct submission.

    At the present time all submitted medical bills need to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) act made in 2005. It is common for software to be compliant with this legal standard.

    Some medical billing software adds other areas of functionality such as scheduling, letter and report writing, finance handling and accounting, and other tasks necessary in the management of a medical practice. The integration of these different areas of data-management can improve efficiency and clarity. Transcription capabilities can reduce the need for paper records, saving both time and money. Some software can be accessed via portable devices such as palm handhelds or even mobile phones, allowing work to be accomplished away from the main data center.

    Some medical billing programs claim that they even increase the amount of money that the healthcare business receives from the insurance companies. Since the insurance companies use a variety of different data formats, the software needs to be able to handle them all accurately. Another significant area is help and support, both from included help-files and from phone support centers for the software.
