4 Online Medical Coding Training: These classes are intended to provide learners the necessary education and coding experience to pass the national certification exams in medical coding and/or billing. They are continuing education and are not intended to be a replacement for college coursework, nor do they constitute college credit. Each course is a Module. All modules have the necessary topics containing 1) reference ebook chapters 2) learning objectives, 3) chapter Q & A, 4) medical cases for coding, 5) PowerPoint lectures and 6) a short competency quiz for each topic area. There is a pre and post-test to measure your progress. Tier I Program Description: Physician & Outpatient Coding Module 1: Medical Terminology Abstraction (CPC, CCS-P Prep). This module is specifically designed for the medical coder and is a refresher course in medical terminology, i.e., anatomy, physiology and pathology terms. The course covers all 12 organ systems and teaches the coder how to accurately do medical abstraction (identify and define) key terms for the purpose of diagnostic and procedure coding. Module 2: ICD-9 CM Outpatient Physician Coding (CPC, CCS-P Prep). This course covers the guidelines and conventions for ICD-9-CM diagnostic coding. This course will focus on professional (outpatient) diagnosis coding to prepare you for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) Certified Professional Coding (CPC, CPC-H, CPC-P ) Exams, or the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Specialist-Physician (CCS- P ) Exam. Proper coding is based on abstracting the key information from the medical documentation to show medical necessity and then assigning and accurately sequencing the primary and secondary diagnoses codes to 3rd digit, 4th digit, and 5th digit specificity. Module 3: Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) and Modifiers (CPC, CCS-P Prep). This course covers the all of the guidelines and coding conventions for Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) Codes and Modifiers, and the corresponding National Correct Coding Initiatives (NCCI) for all sections of the CPT coding book, including E/M, Anesthesiology, Surgery, Radiology, Laboratory, Medicine and for Category II and III codes. This course will focus on professional (outpatient) coding to prepare you for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) Certified Professional Coding (CPC, CPC-H, CPC-P) Exams, or the American Health Information Management Page 4 of 17

5 Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Specialist-Physician (CCS- P) Exam. Module 4: HCPCS Level II (DMEPOS) and Modifiers (CPC, CCS-P Prep) This course covers all of the guidelines and conventions for HCPCS Level II Codes and Modifiers. These codes are for DMEPOS, or Durable Medical Equipment Parenteral/Enteral Therapies, Orthotics and Supplies for medical billing. These codes are used in both the inpatient and outpatient setting and are being taught to prepare you for the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) Certified Professional Coding (CPC, CPC-H, CPC-P) Exams, or the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Specialist-Physician (CCS- P) Exam. This Tier (I) facilitated course covers 5 modules of study. It is a comprehensive 180 day curriculum review. It is a must for anyone who is either preparing to take the national coding certification exam through the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC) for the CPC, CPC-H, CPC-P, or the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) CCS-P. It is also appropriate for those who need to be updated in the latest professional medical coding guidelines and conventions for outpatient coders. Course modules are filled with illustrations, Q & A, and medical record cases. In addition you will be facilitated by an instructor with expertise in the area of medical insurance billing and coding and also who has successfully completed the national certification examinations from both AAPC and AHIMA. Module 5: Medical Billing & Reimbursement (CPC, CCS-P Prep-Optional) This comprehensive course covers the 1) Revenue Cycle from Fee setting, to Medical Appeals, 2) Insurance 101 from Medicare to Managed Care to Private pay, 3) Front/back office processes, 4) medical computer systems and 5) medical records management.
