Is it better to take Billing or Coding first?

by Robyn
(San Diego, CA)

The place that I am doing the courses online offer them separately, and they leave it up to you to chose which one to do first, but I was wondering if you suggest taking one before the other?

Thank you


Thanks for visiting our site.

It may not make too much difference but I would suggest taking the billing course first. Most billing courses typically include at least a brief introduction to coding - so that you'll know enough for the billing course.

Many coding courses I've seen get pretty in depth in coding - but you usually don't need to know this detail to take a billing course.

Hope this helps.
