Increase your coding skills and prepare to take the official certification exam to become a Certified Coding Specialist.

Facility coding (hospital coding) is one of the best-paying sectors of the coding profession. If you're already performing some aspect of facility coding, the Advanced Hospital Coding (AHC) Program will fill in the gaps, making you a more marketable employee. These skills are essential to your successful completion of the American Health Information Management Association's (AHIMA) mastery-level credentialing exam, the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS).

If you're currently working in a physician’s office or billing service, this program will give you the edge you need to advance in the workplace. Most hospitals will only hire coders with previous exposure to facility coding or who are already certified. Training on-the-job is a luxury most hospitals are unable to offer. Coders of all levels must undergo continuing education to stay current with the constantly changing regulations.

The AHC program covers advanced, hospital-specific coding and billing procedures and is designed to help students meet the challenge of today's changing standards. This program will utilize your existing knowledge of medical terminology and healthcare sciences. Your coding skills will be heightened and focused, preparing you for employment testing and successful completion of the CCS exam. Upon registering, you are given six months to complete the program. 

When you've successfully completed this program, you'll:

  • Understand how health information travels within departments of a facility
  • Be able to define the roles and responsibilities of a coder in both in- and out-patient facilities
  • Know how to interpret health-record documentation using your knowledge of anatomy, physiology, clinical disease processes, and medical terminology
  • Accurately assign codes for diagnoses, conditions, problems, or other reasons for patient encounters 
  • Select codes according to Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Sets (UHDDS) definitions and official coding guidelines
  • Evaluate the effect of code selection on Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) assignment, and verify DRG assignment based on Prospective Payment System (PPS) definitions
  • Determine proper use of Modifiers, CPT vs. HCPCS Level II codes, and Medical Necessity (linking diagnosis to procedure or service)
  • Understand reimbursement methodologies and documentation rules and regulations
  • Identify the Charge Master and its components
  • Understand the CPT guidelines, with special emphasis on surgery coding

This program will help you become competent in these hospital-based coding areas:
