Medical Coding at a Glance

What is Medical Coding?

What is Medical Coding?

Medical Coding is the combination of letters and numbers to describe diagnosis, procedures, medical service and equipment for inpatient and outpatient records on a computer.

 

Medical Coding Professionals help ensure that codes are entered correctly during the medical billing process. By using physicians' notes, medical record documentation, labs and radiology results, coders translate the written observations into the appropriate codes - which then becomes a claim paid by insurance carriers. 


Risk Adjustment Course

Students will be taught the different types of Risk Adjustment coding methods. Students will code a wide variety of patient services using ICD-10-CM coding and differentiate between inpatient, outpatient and payment services.

Physician Coding Course

Students will gain knowledge of outpatient facilities and departments; navigate the business side of hospital outpatient services; review critical pieces in the billing and revenue cycle management process and develop outpatient hospital facility Compliance knowledge.

Inpatient Coding Course

Students will be taught different types of hospital facilities and their departments. Students will code a wide variety of patient services using ICD-10-CM coding and differentiate between inpatient, outpatient and payment services.

Outpatient Coding Course
