We Grow Because of You

MAB welcomes you to our association!  Our mission is to assist you in your professional growth, whether that is entering the industry, strengthening and updating your skills and knowledge, or preparing you for career growth.  We are here for you during every step of your journey, whether that is in the front office, the billing or coding department, or in practice management.  MAB is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the development of medical billing and coding practices and is centered on the principles of encouragement, excellence, integrity, and service.  

Why Join MAB?

Membership in a professional association like MAB shows employers that you work to the highest ethical and professional standards.  With the rapidly changing billing, coding, and compliance regulations, it is challenging to keep up.  MAB provides you with the latest information on Medicare and insurer changes, coding and reimbursement trends, claim submission, health care insurance regulations, medical accounts receivable strategies, managed care trends, audit protection, HIPAA, the Correct Coding Initiative, various Congressional Acts, and more.  All this - plus the ongoing need to properly code and bill claims properly the first time to limit appeals and to mitigate cash flow concerns - means that a Certified Medical Billing Specialist certification and membership networking is more vital than ever before.
