The William Floyd Family Center recently held graduation ceremonies for 25 adult education students who completed the 96-hour Medical Billing course focused on such topics as code diagnostics, coding procedures, introduction to medical billing terminology, advanced medical billing terminology, computerized billing and more. Graduating students received a Certificate of Completion from Suffolk County Community College, which qualifies them for employment in the medical billing field.
“We received excellent feedback from the students; many of whom will continue to work with our employment specialist to develop their résumés so that they can pursue a career in the Medical Billing field,” said Jodi Lieberman, Program Director, Family Service League’s William Floyd Family Center.
The goal of the William Floyd Family Center is to serve as a conduit for vital resources such as counseling, vocational training, housing assistance and educational workshops for residents. Adult education students will also be able to work with an employment specialist who will assist them with résumé writing, interview skills and in a job search.
The Medical Billing course, as well as some of the family support services, are made possible through grant funding from the JP Morgan Chase Foundation.
