This is not a billing course. This course is meant to teach the Basics of CPT coding, in order to: 1) prepare attendees for entry level coding in various healthcare settings where CPT is used, such as physician offices, medical group practices, clinics, billing companies and hospitals. 2) To assist attendees to prepare to take the CCA or CCS exams offered by the AHIMA to become a Nationally certified coder. Course covers guidelines/conventions, as noted in the AMA-CPT book, APC reimbursement information, with numerous coding exercises. Recommended: Medical Terminology.
