Basic CPT Coding, Part 2

Online Education Courses

A continuation of Part 1 of the Basic CPT/HCPCS Coding course, Part 2 utilizes higher level, more complex examples (case studies, records and scenarios). This course covers surgery coding, anesthesia coding, radiology coding, pathology and laboratory coding, and reimbursement in the ambulatory setting. Students are assigned exercises to complete using Nuance Healthcare's Clintegrity 360 encoder.

Coding Basics is a self-paced program which will cover the foundational concepts in the coding and billing profession. Coding professionals abstract clinical data from health records and assign appropriate medical codes. These codes are used for reimbursement, planning, and research. Comprehensive training in inpatient and outpatient coding is provided, along with the necessary background courses in health record content, medical terminology, and disease process.
