LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Upon successful completion of this program, learners will display proficiency in the following areas: • Basic Medical Terminology and Anatomy & Physiology • HIPAA and Medical Documentation • Federal regulations and standards • Best practices in using coding and medical forms • Professional communication to use with both patients and co-workers • Female reproductive anatomy, cycles, and illnesses DESCRIPTION: This multimedia-rich program is specifically designed for any individual who wants to become a medical coder with an OB/GYN specialization. If you want to enter this field with an entry-level medical coding job, then this OB/GYN specialization course is ideal for you. Furthermore, existing professionals in the industry can also use this program as an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills and potentially advance in their careers. This all-inclusive and user-friendly program will provide you with the necessary knowledge and comprehensive training experience so that you can become a valuable healthcare professional. The program is divided into five sections. These include: 1. Anatomy and Physiology 2. Medical Coding 3. ICD-10 Coding 4. Medical Terminology 5. Obstetrics and Gynecology In this program, you will develop skills in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, and more. You’ll also learn how to code properly by using the current ICD,HCPCS, and CPT systems. We also provide you with an exam voucher for the prestigious Certified Professional Coder (CPC) national certification exam by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AACP). This program also gives you a voucher for the OB/GYN Specialty exam. You’ll also receive a year-long membership to AAPC. Thus, with this program, you’ll be able to secure a job as a professional medical coder at hospital facilities, ambulatory facilities, and private practice offices. CERTIFICATION: After completing this program students will be prepared to sit for the AAPC's Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam. Included in the program tuition is a voucher for the certification exam, one year membership fee to AAPC, and the recommended CPT, ICD, and HSPCS manuals (included manuals are AAPC approved for use during the certification exam). The CPC examination consists of questions regarding the correct application of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes used for billing professional medical services to insurance companies. Examinees must also demonstrate knowledge on proper modifier use, coding guidelines and regulatory rules. A CPC must have at least two years medical coding experience (member's with an apprentice designation are not required to have two years medical coding experience.) Membership is required to be renewed annually and 36 Continuing Education Units (CEU's) must be submitted every two years for verification and authentication of expertise. Due to the level of expertise required of medical coders, AAPC expects certified coders to be able to perform not only in an exam setting but also in the real world. In addition to passing the certification exam, coders will also be required to demonstrate on-the-job coding experience. Those who pass the CPC exam but have not yet met this requirement will be designated as an Apprentice (CPC-A) on their certificate. CPC-A Status: Members with an Apprentice designation are still required to submit annual CEUs while completing the coding job requirement. COBGC Requirements: Must schedule examination four weeks in advance While there is no requirement, we strongly recommend that the candidate has at least two years of experience in the specialty. Please be aware that these are difficult, high-level examinations. Each state may have additional licensing requirements, be sure to research your states requirements for employment by visiting your states occupation board.
