Description

Community Health Coding & Billing Specialist (CH-CBS) Training and Certification Prep Class
"Learn More to Earn More"

January 17-18, 2019


Why attend?

  • With the recent requirement by CMS to require FQHCs to provide HCPCS code-level detail (CPT and HCPCS-2) – it has never been more important to make sure you are documenting and coding for 100% of what is done. If you aren’t documenting and coding correctly you may not be capturing everything that is done and some revenue may be left on the table!
  • We will present a detailed review of the AMA’s 2018 CPT Professional Edition from the perspective of community health focusing on the services typically provided by FQHCs and look-alikes. We will focus on the guidelines that appear before and after key coding sections that rarely are accessible to providers and coders/billers in their EHRs and encoder software.
  • With Information Technology finding its way into more areas of medical facilities the difference between clinical documentation, professional coding, and medical billing have never been more important.
  • We will limit the review of codes that will rarely or never be performed in community health – but will review the CPT cover to cover including guidelines, appendices, and modifiers with focus on level of visits and preventive services.

Who is the class for?

This class is designed for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, facility and financial managers that work in FQHCs and FQHC look-alikes.

What is being taught?

The Community Health Clinical Documentation/Coding portion will be taught live from 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. over the course of January 17th and 18th 2019. The Community Health Billing portion will be taught via 3 hours of webinar training and accessible within 1-2 weeks after the in-person class. Each webinar session will last 1.5 hours and slides will be provided for reference. There will be live and recorded webinar options available for registered attendees.

Earning the Community Health Coding and Billing Certification

Upon completing both sections of class (as verified by registration information maintained by SCPHCA and ARHPC) authorized attendees will be able to take a 100 question online examination. If a score of 75% is achieved, a certification of Community Health Coding & Billing Specialist (CH-CBS) will be provided by the Association for Rural & Community Health Professional Coding. Full attendance includes the live training sessions, a one year ARHPC membership, the billing webinars, and the testing fee.

After you pass the optional examination

A certificate suitable for framing will be provided along with annual CEU renewal requirements and membership dues based upon the date of the class they attend. If the test is not passed the first time a free re-test is available. The test must be taken within 60 days of the last day of class or a fee of $75 will be charged. The class includes a 1-year ARHPC membership and discounted manuals and eLearning!

To maintain your CH-CBS credential you must earn 12 CEUs each year and pay the $110 annual fee with at least half coming from ARHPC educational sessions (e.g. webinars, in-person class, eLearning, etc.).

Participation in this class includes 11 CME's or 11 CEU's.
