The Medical Billing and Coding Module of Wonderlic’s Quality Care Inventory (QCI) includes multiple assessments, each designed to measure knowledge and skills associated with a specific billing and/or coding role.

Recommended Competency Modules

Tailor Assessments for Your Practice
While each assessment includes a core set of recommended competency modules that are common to particular position titles, we recognize that each practice is unique and may have its own expectations about the responsibilities assigned to a given role. Therefore, competency modules can be added or removed to tailor any assessment for your practice’s specific hiring and/or training needs.
