Coding for Physicians
CCO will help new and seasoned medical coders, billers and practice managers with their certification education – first to get certified then to maintain certification.
This is done via articles, videos and practice questions many of which are freely available through out the site. Some are paid products like our popular Coding Certification Review Blitz and CEU On Demand Classes and Physician Based Coding Course. We have a discussion board where aspiring coders can ask their questions about getting certified and one where certified coders can discuss ways they've maintained their CEUs for their respective credential.
The 4Med+ CIPCP program provides education on ICD-10 that is tailored for physicians and other clinical providers. The course does not require any previous experience with the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) system, though most providers will be somewhat familiar with ICD-9-CM. This course is not designed for professional coders, and it does not focus in depth on the codes themselves. Instead, the course focuses on the information that providers need, especially the documentation required to support proper ICD-10 coding.
The course describes major changes in the transition between ICD-9 and ICD-10. It provides an overview of both ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS. ICD-10-CM is the Clinical Modification version used in both ambulatory and acute-care settings. ICD-10-PCS is the Procedure Coding System used largely in hospitals. The course focuses on documentation requirements, and it includes quick reference guidelines for 16 medical specialties. These specialties are:
- Ear, Nose, and Throat
- General Surgery
- Hematology and Oncology
- Internal Medicine and Family Practice
- Mental Health and Substance Abuse
- Nephrology and Urology
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
The course also includes the entire ICD-10-CM coding set, including the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting 2014.
Module titles within this course include:
- An Introduction to ICD-10 for Clinical Providers
- Understanding ICD-10-CM
- Understanding ICD-10-PCS
- Understanding Root Operation Groups
Successful completion of this course awards a Certificate of ICD-10 Proficiency for Clinical Providers which has been reviewed and authorized by the 4Medapproved professional medical and technical advisory boards, in partnership with Libman Education Inc., a leading provider of online coding education.
