I'm a hospital Inpatient Coder. What courses should I take?
The inpatient Module covers DRG's, facility (UB-04 Form) coding, APC's and other inpatient-related topics.
For inpatient coding and billing, the CPC-H and the CCS exam, I recommend ordering both the sample CPC-H exam and the Inpatient Billing and coding module.
However, you must know ICD-9, CPT and HCPCS coding before you study hospital, inpatient coding.
Our Prep course prepares you for the CPC or CSS-P coding exam. It covers ICD-9, CPT and HCPCS for physician coding (CMS-1500 Form).
Can I ask questions?
Yes. Most questions are sent and answered by E-mail. We try to get back with you promptly, usually within a few hours.
You can also call us at (901) 517-1705.
Always be very specific as to the location of the question. For example, you would need to state that the module is HIPAA Exam, test 2, question 9.
