Does HCPro offer the Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online as an on-site course?

We can offer a customizable version of Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online for organizations that have a number of employees who need coding training. For more information on hosting an on-site course, click on “Host an On-Site Course.”

Is the cost of the AAPC CPC exam part of the course registration fee?

No, the cost of the exam is not included in the $1,599 course registration fee. Course participants desiring to take the examination will be required to register for the exam with the AAPC and pay a separate examination fee (currently $260) and student membership fee (currently $70) directly to the AAPC. Information on registering for (and paying for) the examination is sent out upon receipt of the student's course registration materials. Please do not send payment for the exam with your course registration fee.

Does completion of the course lead to any formal certification?

We anticipate that many of the Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online course participants will, at some point, sit for the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) exam offered by the American Health Information Management Association. While the Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online should be helpful in preparing for the CCS exam, CCS candidates should be aware that the exam also covers topics other than inpatient coding, notably outpatient CPT coding and Medicare reimbursement. Consequently, candidates will need additional training/preparation beyond the Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online. CCS candidates may also want to consider taking our Certified Coder Boot Camp (focused on CPT coding) and our Medicare Boot Camp—Hospital Version (focused on Medicare reimbursement for hospital services).

How is the certification exam structured?

See www.ahima.org.

Does the course require previous coding experience?

Because of the fast-paced nature of the course, it is highly recommended that Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS Online, participants have at least one year of coding-related experience. While prior inpatient coding experience is helpful, this course is also designed for individuals with outpatient coding experience (such as CPCs or COCs) who are interested in enhancing their coding skills.

Also, if you do not already have a solid understanding of medical terminology, we strongly recommend that you complete a medical terminology self-study course prior to the start of the course. A good self-study program is Medical Terminology for Health Professions, 7th Edition, by Ann Ehrlich and Carol L. Schroeder (ISBN 1133687318). The book is available at www.amazon.com and may also be available from one of your local bookstores. Our students who do not have a strong background in medical terminology typically find this book extremely helpful.

Do I need to bring my own coding manuals to class?

You will need the most current ICD-10-CM manual and an ICD-10-PCS manual. To purchase coding manuals from HCPro, please visit our website.

Are there course materials provided with the online training?

Students receive proprietary materials and exercises the Thursday prior to the start of class.

Is the course material updated for all code changes?

All HCPro coding Boot Camps are updated yearly to reflect the coding changes published each year.

Does HCPro ever share contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) with other companies?

Historically, we have not shared contact information with anyone outside of our company. However, it is possible that at some point we might share contact information with other companies that offer products and services that we think would be of interest to our customers. If you would like us to keep your contact information confidential, please let us know so that we can flag your information in our customer database as "Do Not Share."
