Course Description

The Basics is designed especially for staff who have never attended a coding and billing workshop and have no formal training in procedural and diagnostic coding.  This course will present the very basic elements of bill and coding, and will provide participants with an effective understanding of the CPT and ICD-9-CM coding systems.


Coding Manuals

Manuals required for this course include a current ICD-9-CM (Volumes I and II) and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT).   Manuals will not be provided by IHS or the instructor.  Participants are to bring the required manuals to this training.  The instructor also suggests a medical dictionary. 



Program Goal:  The goal of the Basic Update and Review class is to advance the “beginner level” coder and biller to a level of competency to code and bill for health care services rendered at a California Indian Health Care Facility, with supervision.
