Continuing Education: Medical Billing & Coding

Course Details

This course offers the skills needed to solve insurance billing problems,  file claims manually (using the CPT and ICD-10-CM manual), complete common insurance forms, briefly overview trace delinquent claims, and examine the process to appeal denied claims and use generic forms to streamline billing procedures.

The course covers the following areas:

  • CPT (Introduction, Guidelines, Evaluation, and Management).
  • Specialty fields (surgery, radiology, and laboratory).
  • ICD-10-CM (Introduction and Guidelines) and basic claims processes for medical insurance and third-party reimbursements.

Students will learn how to find the service and codes using manuals (CPT and ICD-10-CM).

Note: After obtaining the practical work experience (6 months to 2 years), students who complete this course could be qualified to sit for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) Certified Professional Coder (CPC or CPC-H Apprentice) exam; the American Health Information Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Associate (CCA) exam; and/or other National Certification Exams.

This entry-level course does not require the use of a computer as the focus of a coding professional is the proper use of coding and the related coding manuals.
