Online Medical Coding Course

A Complete, Online Education for Learning Medical Coding in a Physician’s Office

For over 16 years we have been teaching this medical coding program – with many students successfully passing their first CPC® exam after training with us by viewing our videos and learning our techniques. This Physician Based Medical Coding course will provide you the training you need to learn HOW to do medical coding and gives you all the training needed to pass the CPC® exam or other physician-based coding credentials like the QMC, CCS-P or CMCS. You will be ready to start your new Medical Coding career.

Our goal is to give you all the current information needed to be a successful medical coder AND pass your medical coding CPC exam test. This includes training in CPT coding, HCPCS and ICD-10-CM coding as well as understanding payment methodologies.

When you are finished with our medical coding course online, you will be able to review and assign the correct procedures and diagnostic codes for patient encounters in a physician office or outpatient setting.

  • Existing students enrolled outside CCO that require supplemental training
  • Healthcare workers looking to switch roles at their workplace such as front office clerks, medical receptionists, case managers, medical records clerks, transcriptionists, schedulers, research coordinators, nurses, caregivers or similar roles.

Includes The BHAT® System

BHAT® (pronounced ‘bat’) stands for “Bubble, Highlight and Annotate Technique“. This is a proprietary system, which is used in connection with our educational services, 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 also helps coders in their day to day coding work! [Learn More]

Maybe You Are One of The People Who Is:

  • Not sure if that local school down the street has good medical coding certificate program?
  • Curious if you actually need to attend a local college because you prefer a medical coding course online?
  • Worried about reports of people attending a $19,000 online medical course and not having the skills that will help them become a certified medical coder or pass the exam?
  • Wondering if you will finish your medical coding certification program in the typical 4 months online programs give you to finish?
  • Wishing someone would just take your hand and guide you to become a medical coder from beginning to end without emptying your wallet?

If You Need To Learn Medical Coding Online, You’ve Come to the Right Place!

My name is Laureen Jandroep and I’m the founder and CEO of CCO. I’ve been teaching and coaching medical coders prepare for their medical coding specialist certificate since 1999.

I basically thought I was going to be an Occupational Therapist when I grew up and I was for a number of years. I actually ran a therapy practice here in South Jersey. At our zenith, we had about 27 therapists, aides and office staff. On average we  did over 1.6 million in billing a year of which I was quite proud. But what I was most proud of is that we had less than a 0.06% rejection rate and that was because we did good coding. Kind of by accident, I basically had to do billing. I had to learn about cost reports and all of that. I got out manuals and I actually read the introductions of my coding manuals. We had a very low denial rate and in the rehab industry, that’s just unheard of. So I have taken an interest in coding since back then. Medicare basically changed the way rehab agencies like mine were able to bill, and many of us went out of business. So I got into the billing and coding world. I ran a school for a number of years which I loved… and guess what… I’m still teaching even now!

We have a unique way of teaching myself new concepts and we share that with our students. So they “get it”. As fast as possible. Because medical coding demands that we stay current on changes in medical coding and billing. So let me tell you…

There is a Solution to Finding the Best Online Medical Coding Training

You see, it doesn’t have to be that hard. You don’t need to stress. After all, most medical coding schools are using the same textbooks and workbooks. So the important thing to focus on is the instructor and their teaching methods. There is an easier way…

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.

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.
