The NEW Professional Medical Coding and Billing program was designed by leading industry experts to prepare students for the new ICD-10 code set, and this training is used by some of the largest and most respected healthcare organizations in the country.
The AHIMA-approved Professional Medical Coding and Billing program includes 600 hours of curriculum. Since the program is completely self-paced and the online training format allows you the flexibility to study as much or as little as your schedule allows, the time it takes you to complete the course will vary from other students. Some students are able to complete their training program in as little as 4 months (working on the course full-time, 8 hours a day 5 days a week) and others, who are more limited in the time they can devote to the course, take longer (for example, students who can devote about 20 hours a week may finish in about 8 months).
Every student who enrolls in Career Step's Professional Medical Coding and Billing program receives an initial 12-month period of enrollment. Though the programs are designed to be completed in 4 months of full-time study, you'll have a full year to complete your training. If you need extra time to complete the course after your initial one-year enrollment, we have 4-month extensions available for purchase.
Students are also prepared for the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) and Certified Professional Coder (CPC) certification exams. Topics studied include healthcare information management, reimbursement methodologies, biomedical sciences, and ICD-9/10, CPT, and HCPCS codes. In addition to one-on-one instructor and graduate support, students receive a free certification exam voucher upon graduation, a free ICD-10 FastTrack course, textbooks, a complete set of industry code books, and access to an online reference library. Everything you need to succeed is included in our 600 hour, AHIMA-approved Professional Medical Coding and Billing course and additional information can be found at www.careerstep.com/bellevue.
