Monthly Q&A Webinar continues to be FREE of charge – It is important to note that everyone continues to be able to register for and attend the monthly Q&A webinar FREE of charge. There is no cost to attend our 90+ minute webinar that shares medical and coding information each month. For over two years, CCO had provided this service free of charge, and offered 1 free CEU each month. This past year, we have been upgraded to 1.5 CEUs awarded monthly.
CEU Certificate Cost – The $10 fee is for those individuals who attend and wish to also receive AAPC CEU certification for their attendance. Exceptions are for CCO Club members whose CEU certification is included in their club membership
Cost of Doing Business – As the content of our webinars continues to grow, and the efforts to put the webinar together each month also increase, we are offsetting administrative costs by charging a nominal fee … but only for those who wish to obtain CEU certification for attending. If you apply for your certificate within 24 hours after the webinar, the cost will be $10.00. Once CEU application expires for the monthly webinar, only CCO Club members will have CEU access – which of course is free of charge for CCO Club Members.
The initial change in CEU certificate procedures was announced in October 2015, effective for the November 2015 webinar. The new $10 fee was announced during the April 2018 webinar. With the industry average cost of $27/CEU, we see the nominal $10 fee a substantial bargain for a value that equates to $40 for the 1.5 CEUs you receive for attending. We enjoy conducting the webinars, and welcome all who come to further their education.
