This short-term training program is designed to provide practical application of coding operative reports, evaluation, and management services. The student will learn principles of medical coding related to the three main code books: CPT®, ICD-10- CM Code Set and HCPCS Level II. This course is recommended for anyone who is preparing for a career in medical coding for a physician’s office and strongly recommended for anyone who is preparing for AAPC’s CPC certification examination. With course completion, students should be proficient at coding a wide variety of patient services.

What does a CPC do?
A certified professional coder reviews clinical documentation and translates medical procedures, diagnosis, supplies, and services into codes that are submitted on a medical claim to payers for reimbursement. CPCs need a good grasp on medical terminology and anatomy to understand medical charts and abstract important information. They serve a vital role in the financial wellbeing of their employing organization and indirectly influence patient outcomes through accurate medical coding.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of medical terminology and anatomy strongly recommended. 

Potential Certifications: Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the AAPC's Certified Professional Coder (CPC) Exam.

Tuition: $3,897 Full Price; $1,299 FastForward WCG Price
Supplies and Fees: Tuition includes cost of textbook, AAPC online exam registration fee, as well as a $50 credential attainment incentive.

How much does a CPC make an hour?
CPC's make between $20 and $30 per hour, which varies by location, experience, and additional credentialing.
