Does the course require any previous experience or training?
Because of the fast-paced nature of the course, it is recommended (but not required) that participants have at least one year of experience working in a professional practice setting. However, the course starts with Medicare fundamentals and does not assume that participants have any particular background or experience. Familiarity with the CPT coding system will be particularly helpful.
How is the course taught?
The course is taught using a combination of lecture, class discussion and hands-on exercises/case studies.
What do I need to bring to class?
When you arrive at class, you will receive an extensive binder of course materials. However, in order to get the most out of the course, you should bring a current CPT manual to class. Any current version of the CPT manual will be fine so long as it is published by the American Medical Association. (Our instructors use and recommend the AMA's CPT Professional Edition.)
HCPro offers the 2009 edition of the CPT Manual (published by AMA) on HCMarketplace.
Ingenix publishes a manual called "CPT Expert." We recommend against using CPT Expert for this course because CPT Expert does not contain all of the official CPT guidelines.
Please bring the following to all classes:
- Your CPT manual
- A handheld calculator
- Note paper (we recommend "3 hole" paper so that you can insert your notes in the course workbook)
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."
