Each course consists of a streaming video taught by Marcia Brauchler.  Each course is accompanied by a comprehensive exam created to provide additional assistance on the tested material while maximizing your CE credits. 

 

Coding Class

 

Continuing Education Courses Available:

History of Medicine, Physician Training & Medical Coding (2 CEUs)

Goals of Training:
We start with a review of ancient medicine, and learn about the father of modern medicine (Hippocrates) and those who first wrote medical text books and revolutionized the clinical research process. We learn about the evolution of the practice of medicine from the use of anesthesia, to the invention of important medical technologies. 

There are medical professions today that didn’t even exist 20 years ago. Having a history of the evolution of the field gives Coders an awareness of their place in the profession of medicine. 

To be successful doing business with physicians, we must have an appreciation for the training of the physician. 

We review the history of coding, from ICD-9 to the 4th edition of CPT.

 

Calculating Medicare Payments (1 CEU)

Goals of Training:
The goal of this course is to further the coder’s understanding and comfort in determining what reimbursements they should expect from Medicare. Learning and practicing how to calculate Medicare payments serves as a great baseline for almost all other payers. This course will review Resource Based Relative Value Scales including exceptions as well as Relative Value Units and Advance Beneficiary Notices. It will step coders through practice problems to ensure currency in Medicare payment calculations.
