Basic CPT Coding, Part 2

Online Education Courses

The purpose of this course is to reinforce basic principles of CPT coding with case studies written at an intermediate level.The focus of this course will be on reimbursement and surgical coding.

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.


At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Follow guidelines for assigning CPT codes to the surgical sections.
  • Code procedures for data collection and processing.
  • Apply the practice of existing control procedures to ensure accuracy and completeness of coded information.


You must complete each item found on the main course page to successfully complete this course. Completion is identified with a green check mark symbol.

Each lesson has an associated lesson-level quiz provided for review. You may take the quizzes as many times as you like. However, note that you must achieve a score of 70% or higher on each quiz for it to mark as complete. Lesson-level quiz scores are not included on your course transcript, as the quizzes are review resources with unlimited attempts.

Unlike the quizzes, you are only allowed to take the Final Exam once, and you must complete it with a score of 70% or higher to successfully complete the course. Your score on the Final Exam composes 100% of the score shown on your transcript for the course.
