JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario: 2018 CPT® Online Edition

Real-world coding simulation to sharpen your coding skills

JustCoding’s Clinical Scenario: 2018 CPT® Online Edition provides an opportunity for coders to practice and refine their skills in a hands-on way by using a wide range of real-life case scenarios. Coders will determine the correct CPT and ICD-10-CM codes to report for each case scenario based on provided documentation, evidence of sufficient medical necessity, and any conditions present that would allow for Hierarchical Condition Category capture.

This online learning course also includes labeled illustrations for select cases to help coders by highlighting important anatomic details.  These 52 case scenarios let coders practice real-world coding without risking actual revenue.

When applicable, cases will also include references to guidance from CPT Assistant, Coding Clinic, the ICD-10 and CPT guidelines, and the NCCI Manual. 

This book will help coders by:

  • Simulating real-world coding by actively reporting ICD-10-CM and CPT codes for each case scenario
  • Providing answers for every case with rationales from experts who explain why certain codes should or should not be reported
  • Giving a refresher on certain standards, bundling policies, and coding guidelines necessary for compliance

What makes our online training course different?

  • Adjustable difficulty — Each case is available in beginner and advanced levels, allowing users to set the amount of challenge they are comfortable with. The beginner level provides additional details such as the code descriptions while the advanced level provides only the scenario, leaving code selection completely up to the user.
  • Easier distribution — This course allows managers to delegate cases to be done and you can track your team’s progress as they work through the cases.
  • Instant feedback — Instead of referring to an answer key, our interface allows you to easily see whether your answer is correct upon submission.
