Certified Professional Biller Course

A Complete, Online Education for Medical Coders to Physician Based Medical Billing

For over 16 years we have been teaching medical coding – with many students successfully passing their first exams after training with us by viewing our videos and learning our techniques. This Certified Professional Biller course will provide you with the training you need to learn medical billing in a physician's office.

BHAT™ System Included

Includes The BHAT™ System

BHAT™ (pronounced ‘bat') stands for “Bubble, Highlight and Annotate Technique“. This is a proprietary system created by Laureen Jandroep in 1999 that uses bubbling, highlighting and annotation techniques to help students quickly find key answers in their manuals during the open book AAPC exams.

Instead of flipping back and forth between pages where the guidelines are, the answers are right next to the codes when a student takes the board exam. Students have stated the BHAT™ system gave them the confidence they needed to pass the exam. Another plus: the BHAT™ system helps coders in their day to day coding work after the exam as well! [Learn More]

40 CEU Credits Included With This COC Outpatient Coding Course

CCO Club & Find-A-Code Essentials Now Included

Starting January 1st, 2017, this course now includes access to the CCO Club and Find-A-Code Essentials.

We provide CEUs, replays, transcripts and Answer Sheets of all our Q&A Webinars, Facebook Events and Support Calls.

FindACode.com is an online database of medical billing codes and information.  People use Find-A-Code to assign codes to medical diagnosis and procedures in order to be reimbursed by insurance companies and Medicare.  Rather than searching through 10 or more books, Find-A-Code has combined the information into one simple search. You will also have exclusive access to CCO Shared Notes to help you code even faster.

18.5 Continuing Education Unit Credits (CEUs)

Once you've passed the COC™ exam, you'll need to maintain your certification every year by acquiring 36 CEU credits if you have one credential. A second credential bumps that requirement up to 40.

We've taken that worry off your shoulders by providing up to 18.5 CEU credits for this medical billing course alone. So once you're certified, you won't have to worry about acquiring CEU's for another year.

Our Programs Have Worked For Hundreds of Students!

“It definitely got me well prepared”

Just want to let everyone know that I took my CPC exam on December 08 and passed with an 88%. I did an online course so I did not have a teacher in front of me at any time. I attribute much of my success to the Blitz videos because then it felt like a teacher to help me. Laureen is the best! If I can do this at age 54 then anyone can do it! Do not doubt yourself, hard work and hard studying pay off. I did over 750 practice questions to get me ready for this. Not one question was on the exam but I think it definitely got me well prepared along with the “Bubbling and Highlighting” technique. Good luck to anyone studying for the CPC!” – Darlene Bakaj-Wood, CPC-A

“I failed two times… then bought your videos”

“At age 49, I started to go back to school in a MBC program, Graduated at age 50 with high honors, and valedictorian…. I attended an alumni meeting a year later, and the MBC Program Director hired me to teach the MBC Externship Program…. I had to become CPC® certified within months to keep employment there. I failed the first time, couldn’t finish in the 5-1/2 hours allotted then.

Failed the second time by the skin of my teeth- 69. And then restudied, restudied and bought your videos, which I viewed a few times.

Going through the CPT book and BHAT™ guidelines and all those tips made the exam go smoother. I took the exam, passed and incredibly finished in 4-1/2 hours. That’s a record for me. Yes, it cost me again to pay for the exam but I have no regrets whatsoever. Your videos helped me tremendously the 3rd time around and I just wanted to say thanks to you. 3 Times was a charm for me.  NEVER GIVE UP. Keep up the great work. You are awesome, you teach from your heart and your tips are EXCELLENT” – Mary

Can you hear me screaming from the roof top??!! I passed my CPC certification on the very first try! I am so thankful for your Blitz videos and practice exams. I just found out today that I actually passed the test.
Brittany Pendleton
Just wanted to say that I took my CPC exam in December and I passed. I honestly feel that this course was amazing! I researched coding and found this site and am so grateful that I did. I was nervous about starting an online course. I felt the Blitz was extremely helpful in helping me pass the exam. It is very important to do the Blitz and practice exams. I don't feel like I could have done it without CCO! Thank you.
Karie Jarvis-Slayton
I passed my CPC exam on first try with 80%. I could not have done this without the Blitz videos and practice exams. The bubble and highlighting really assisted in my getting thru all 150 questions in the allotted time. My thanks to Laureen and the team as I could not have done it without you guys!!
Lisa Colbert
Dear Laureen, I found out today that I passed the CPC® exam with 87%. Your CPC Review Blitz videos were extremely helpful. I learned so much more from these videos than I ever did in school. Every chapter was well structured and easy to follow. It boosted my confidence and kept me motivated all along. I can’t thank you enough.
Kartika Shree, CPC®-A
I’m one of the ones that passed the certification exam because of your Blitz videos…I’m back in class taking refresher coding courses to keep my self abreast of the updates. I’m in 2 classes with about 20 students in each class, all trying to get certified. As your Blitz was such a blessing to me, I printed from the internet your advertisement page for your Blitz Videos. I’m going to give each of my classmates a copy and let them know that I had tried passing the certification exam several times and didn’t pass until I viewed your course. I hope some, if not all, will take an interest and will order your course. Thanks again for the help you have been to me.
Mary L. Springs
Dear Laureen: I’ve just received notification that I’ve passed my CPC® exam- on the first try!!! There is no way I would have passed the exam without your Blitz Course. The advice and tips you gave are invaluable. Money well spent. I hope to use this certification and my past experience to become an instructor in medical coding and billing. Thank you so much for this step up to my future career!!
Virginia Farrell, CPC®
The Blitz along with several practice tests really helped me feel confident when I walked into the exam. I finished with 40 minutes to spare, which I took to go back over the questions/scenarios I wasn't super sure I did all I could to answer correctly. I was able to take some time and change a couple of answers in that extra time. And I PASSED my first time taking the CPC exam!
Much thanks to Laureen and Alicia for your help and support! I passed the first time with an 88%! I feel such a sense of accomplishment! I knuckled down and completed the PBC course and the Blitz. The bubbling and highlighting is superb! Also, the practice exams were very helpful as Laureen and Alicia advised. Alicia's understanding and nurturing coaching style is perfect for me. She was available when I needed her. Looking forward to continuing my studies with both of you.
