Degree: Medical Billing & Coding

I am on my last coding class. I am completely lost in the Buck coding instruction. They compact a lot of information into a chapter. There are no lecture explaining anything so I am lost. I have a BS and 28 masters units and have never had classes with no lectures at all. There has to be lecture or you leave students feeling overwhelmed. I was a 4.00 gpa in graduate school so I know it is not my study habits. There must be better schools that teach medical coding.

It was great while I attended. I do wish they had better career help after you graduate. Communication was great. Courses were great the student portal was easy to navigate. Easy to do the licensing exams at the end. All around a great experience. I really enjoyed it.

I signed up with Penn Foster a few months ago on a whim. I had been looking at local schools and it was outrageous what the cost was for a simple certificate program. I stumble upon Penn Foster and signed up that day. After I signed up I found horrible reviews and was nervous that I had made a terrible decision. I'm happy to say that it wrong. I love this course and the online learning. Being a single mom it's great to work at my own pace and have no deadlines for assignments. I haven't had to reach... Read More

Do not waste your time or money on this program. I have worked in the medical field for 15 years doing claims and billing. With years of experience using the icd, cpt, and hcpc codes it should be easy to find work. After making close to 100 applications to coding jobs and not getting even 1 interview, it is totally useless. This is after passing the CPC exam as well. The simple fact comes down to nobody wants to hire a newby to coding when there are several others out there with prior experience.... Read More

Don't waste your time on this program. I went through their course for medical billing and coding. The course itself I thought did a decent job of explaining the codes, terminology and all, but is very minimal on the billing side. Also their interactive billing program was very frustrating. The system kept kicking me out and I would have to perform the task multiple times before I could submit that portion and it actually saved on their stupid system. By far and away the most frustrating part is... Read More

I absolutely love the school and the program it worked with my budget and when I couldn't make my payments on the specific due date they allowed me to move it no problem yes the class is online so really don't have teacher interaction but I expected that when I signed up because it is online and when o had a question it was answered within a day or two depending when I emailed them...never had a bad experience with any of the people I talked to or emailed. Every person is different and experience... Read More

I enrolled at Penn Foster and began my program on March 1st, 2016. As of now I am 30% through it and so far, I think it's the best decision I've made concerning my education. I have been wanting to learn medical coding for a long time and I had actually found a free program online through WHO. I spent about a month doing that but I found it hard to stay motivated. I never knew how I was doing because there were no tests or progress checks. There was structure to how it was set up, but for my tastes... Read More
