McHenry County College will be offering a three-day Coding Certification Exam Prep Boot Camp from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on May 2, 3 and 4 in Room A119 at MCC.
This course is designed for coders and other health professionals who have working knowledge of billing and coding or for students who have successfully completed a medical billing and coding course and want to prepare for national certification.
This three-day preparatory boot camp provides an extensive overview of the information needed for participants to pass the AAPC CPC (Certified Professional Coder), or CPC-H (Certified Professional Coder - Hospital) exam. This course does not teach how to code, but instead, reviews essential information and provides indispensable strategies and tips to give test-takers a better chance of passing the exam.
It’s highly recommended that test-takers have at least two years of coding experience prior to sitting for this exam or attending this course. Pre-course materials (anatomy and medical terminology info within textbook) will be provided to each student for review and study prior to the start of class. Students will be responsible for completing homework assignments before each class. Review textbook is included in the cost of this course. Coding manuals (AMA CPT Professional, ICD-9-CM and HCPCS) required for this bootcamp and for the CPC/CPC-H exam are not included and must be purchased separately. Credentialing organization (ie: AAPC, AHIMA) membership and/or examination fees are not included in the cost of this course.
Cost is $999 and includes a continental breakfast, lunch, light afternoon snack and refreshments each day.
