The Learner will know what office equipment will be needed such as: computer system with modem and printer, fax machine, billing and EHR (electronic health records) software and/or business opportunity fee, reference materials, CMS 1500 & UB-04 forms, phone, voice mail or answering machine, stationery and office supplies, postage, complete business opportunity package, which can include lead generation, seminars, marketing help and hold-your-hand technical support along with the software, and hiring a clearinghouse–the companies that receive and transmit claims electronically.
