Alicia: The Future of Coding >> ICD-10 Prep – CCO Style
Boyd, did you want to tell us about this or did you want me to?
Boyd: Yeah. Just give them a little recap about our three courses there Alicia, while I copy the links into the chat.
Alicia: Well, I think everybody knows, or if you don’t know when you’re new, you’re going to find out that I love ICD-10, and we’ve got some fantastic steps to get you prepared for ICD-10 and make you fall in love with ICD-10 as well. First of all, we have an ICD-10-CM Blitz and we went down to Florida at Boyd’s studio, recorded a two-day event that gives you, it’s a 16-hour equivalent. Lots of great CEUs, 16 CEUs just on ICD-10 with the basis being able to pass the proficiency assessment, but it’s much more than that. It really helps you prepare for ICD-10. If you’re already a CPC and you just need a little extra training, this is what’s for you, the ICD-10 Blitz. But, let’s say you need more than just the Blitz, you really want to get down to the specialties and understand each body system in ICD-10. Then, we have an ICD-10-CM Full Course, and it’s an 80-hour equivalent course worth 40 CEUs. That’s more than you need in two years with the AAPC, and again that’s ICD-10-CM. And, because it’s such a long course, Laureen put in a payment plan, so that’s kind of nice.

Last, we wrap it all up with two fantastic practice exams. Now, we have a free 50- question exam. You might want to just go and take that and see, “Do I need the Blitz? Am I okay, kind of, but I just need a little brush up with ICD-10, can I transition pretty well?” Or, if you don’t do well on that free exam, that’s an indication that, “OK, I think I need a full course. I need a little more in-depth training.”
And then, if you go to your training and you want to take another CPC practice exam, we have another 50-question practice exam that’s $29.95. Not much,just a drop in the bucket to see if you’re ready and make you feel comfortable for that proficiency assessment. I can tell you that our free exam and the paid one is we’re told is much more difficult than the proficiency assessment. So, if you did not know, if you’re a certified, core certified AAPC member, you do need to take this proficiency assessment here before December 31, 2015. It’s very, very important and we can answer your questions about that. Send a question to the Helpdesk and we’ve got some other information for you. But just be prepared, don’t let the time fly and miss out on getting ready.
