Access to Find-A-Code (For Select Plans)

FindACode.com is an online database of medical billing codes and information.  We twisted the arms of the good folks at Find-A-Code to be able to include this package including the ability for any notes entered by CCO subject matter experts to be made viable to our users on our Annual Plans. People use Find-A-Code to assign codes to medical diagnosis and procedures in order to be reimbursed by insurance companies and Medicare.  FindACode.com is a quick and easy system that uses a simple search to return accurate information.  Rather than searching through 10 or more books, Find-A-Code has combined the information into one simple search.

Extended Access to All CCO Courses & Review Blitzes You've Purchased In The Past

If you are a current or past CCO Student, you're going to love this CCO Club benefit! If you've ever purchased and fully paid for any CCO Course or Review Blitz, you will receive continued access to any and all the products you purchased as long as you are a CCO Club member in good standing.

Even if you purchased the product 2-3 years ago, you can sign up to the CCO Club and once again receive access to the latest lectures, videos, and resource materials. This benefit does not include One-on-One support with a personal coach but that's ok because with the CCO Club, you can always ask the community for help along the way. And if you really need extended One-on-One personal coaching, we have plans available. Please contact our our Support Desk for more information.

Access to the BHAT™ Cave

Learn How to Bubble, Highlight and Annotate Your CPT and ICD-10-CM Manuals

BHAT™ 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 CPC® 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!

In this membership, you'll learn how to mark up your manuals using CCO's exclusive BHAT™ system.

Ask for Help with Coding, Billing or Workplace Challenges

This is a very popular request that we're happy to finally offer in a private community. If you have any challenges you're facing at your job, the CCO Staff and Community are here to help and provide solutions. Here are some common issues you're welcome to ask for help resolving. Naturally, you're not limited to only these topics:

  • Medical coding, codes and challenges
  • Billing/Reimbursement assistance or challenges
  • ICD-10 questions and clarification on meanings
  • Medicare Regulations
  • Modifiers questions and clarification
  • E/M questions and clarification
  • Inpatient/Outpatient coding questions or clarification
  • Workplace productivity and career guidance
  • Nearly anything else you can think about regarding medical coding, billing, auditing, risk adjustment and more…

Share a Case You Need Help Coding

Here's another immensely popular request that we're thrilled to include in the CCO Club. Cases! You can now share a case (redacted of course) that you need help coding and what you think the codes/billing should be, and the community will weigh in with their thoughts. Here's a list of topics we're happy to receive codes for:

  • Medical Coding
  • Medical Billing
  • ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding
  • Risk Adjustment Coding
  • Inpatient Coding
  • Outpatient Coding
  • E/M Coding
  • Modifiers Coding
  • More coming soon!

Many CEU Opportunities Throughout The Club

Once you’ve passed at least one AAPC 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 many CEU opportunities throughout the CCO Club.

Take the Monthly Q&A Webinars, for example. There are CEU quizzes available if you miss a webinar so you can still earn 1.5 CEUs per month for the last year. That’s up to 18 CEU’s per year, just for being a member and watching our monthly videos and passing the quiz at the end.

We aren't even including all the other content that is regulary being released inside the CCO Club!

Invitations to Select Live Events and Support Calls

The team at CCO is frequently hosting many Live Events and Support Calls every week. As a CCO Club Member, you will occasionally receive invitations to select events to attend and join in on the educational fun.

You know what's even better? We're planning to make many of these select events and calls into CEU approved events. That means even more CEUs when it comes time to renew your certification with the AAPC.

And once your done with the event, head back over the CCO Club to discuss it with peers, ask any additional questions that came up or post your thoughts and comments. Our CCO Club community loves helping out.

Access Also Includes These Exciting Community Features

We Are An Authorized AAPC Education Provider

Go to http://www.aapc.com. There are several ways to get to the CEU Tracker but one way is to do the following. On the home page, hover over the Continuing Education on the top (horizontal) navigation bar. Then click on CEU Tracker. Scroll down, if necessary, and click on the ADD CEUs button. This will bring up a page where you can enter the index number and appropriate date. Be sure to click SAVE.
If you are not certified then CEUs are not needed however anyone can take the quiz to test their knowledge, and all are welcome to join the Club to enhance their education and network with peers.  And once you get your certification the videos and CEU quizzes will be waiting for you.
The CCO Club is for everyone! It may be easier for those with medical coding knowledge to understand and grasp the content, but the more you are exposed to helpful coding examples, guidelines, and topics about the medical coding professions, the sooner you will learn it. Therefore, please feel welcome to sign up for the CCO Club no matter what level of coding expertise you currently have so you can learn more! We are very proud of the supportive environment our student support hubs have been and fully expect that to carry over to the CCO Club.
If you wish to cancel this membership, click here to login to the Member's Area. On the product listing page, you will see a “cancel” button beside your Membership. Click the button to cancel your membership. You will continue to receive access until your current enrollment period ends. We do not give prorated refunds.

Yes, you can re-join but you will lose your current lower rate and will need to re-join at the current fee. Membership fees will increase every month until we feel the Club has reached maturity.

In addition, there is a reactivation fee of $25 to reactivate your monthly access to the CCO Club. If you would like us to also reactivate your access to past Review Blitzes and Courses after canceling, the fee increases to $125 to accommodate for the manual labor involved in verifying and providing access once again.

We have emailed existing replay club customers that they will be invited to the CCO Club and they will be grandfathered in at their current rate. Note that grandfathered replay club customers do not qualify for the Find-A-Code Essentials package with CCO shared notes nor access to the BHAT™ Cave unless they upgrade to one of the annual plans.  If you did not get your email please request it be resent by opening a support ticket at http://cco.us/helpdesk and one of our friendly team members will be happy to help.
Yes, the initial live presentation of the Monthly Q&A Webinar is free, and a service CCO gladly offers to help coders in understanding a variety of topics. Once the live webinar is complete, we process the recording taken during the live webinar and archive it to our CCO Club, which is open for further viewing exclusively for our CCO Club members along with full transcription, handouts and answer sheets.
Adding new CCO Club members to the CCO Find-A-Code account is a manual process and usually takes one business day.   If you have not received a system generated email from Find-A-Code within two days please feel free to open a support ticket at http://cco.us/helpdesk.
That's fine you don't have to use it or be added to the CCO account – just open a support ticket at http://cco.us/helpdesk if you don't want to be set up on CCO Find-A-Code.  This only applies to annual plans as the CCO Find-A-Code is not included in monthly plans. We don't provide any discount or lower rate for those that choose not to use Find-A-Code.
We have made an arrangement with the good folks at Find-A-Code to allow CCO Club members to get access to the CCO account version if they want to switch. Just open a support ticket at http://cco.us/helpdesk
Yes! When you enroll in either annual plan you will be given a OTO (one time offer) to upgrade to the professional plan for $250 per year.  If you are interested in an upgrade to the facility version of Find-A-Code open a support ticket at http://cco.us/helpdesk.
Yes! And we highly reccomend them!  To see the list of add ons and to request an invoice for them see this page http://cco.us/fac-request
