Program Details

As prerequisites for our CPC course, you'll get 6 weeks' free access to complete the invaluable Medical Terminology and Human Anatomy and Physiology courses.

Once you have a solid grasp on those topics, we'll introduce the principles of medical coding and the three main coding systems (ICD-10-CM, CPT, and HCPCS). This ensures a broad knowledge in reviewing and assigning the correct procedure and diagnosis codes for professional (physician's) services.

First, we'll familiarize you with the purpose and structure of the three code books, and you'll learn the official coding guidelines and conventions.

You'll learn how to apply coding guidelines to accurately assign diagnoses and procedure codes and learn how to determine E/M service levels. You'll practice coding a wide variety of patient services using CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II codes and provide practical application of coding operative reports and E/M services.

Included in the cost of enrollment, you'll get the three main code books, CPC training textbook and workbook, AAPC student membership, and TWO exam vouchers to cover the cost of CPC exam registration. Please note, the AAPC requires candidates to hold a high school diploma or equivalent before sitting for the CPC exam.
