MIBC technicians serve as direct liaisons between healthcare and insurance providers and are responsible for answering insurance reimbursement questions, and analyze, organize, and evaluate health insurance claims forms by coding diseases, therapies, procedures, and more.
MIBC technicians work in a variety of areas, including:
- Public and private physicians’ offices
- Local, state, and national hospitals
- Skilled nursing and continuing care facilities
- Health insurance companies

Although the majority of MIBC technicians work in-house, there may also be some remote or freelance jobs for people in the field with an impressive educational background and training.
