Medical Coding

with Joanna Clymer


Using specialized computer software, students will learn the medical coding skills needed for completing all required documentation according to national coding standards. This involves understanding patient charts and converting the applicable information into a series of alphanumeric codes known as ICD-10-CM or CPT codes. The course also teaches students how to interpret and correct coding errors.

Note: This class does not meet requirements to become a medical coder.

Course fee includes cost of book, $140.

Prerequisites: Computer basics and a completed course in (or working knowledge of) Medical Terminology.
