- CHCN offers FREE TRAINING and CROSSWALKS for Health Center providers, billers, and staff. The training has been developed by the AAPC, or American Association of Professional Coders, the nation’s largest medical coding certification body with more than 100,000 credentialed coders. CMS offers very short (less than 10 minutes) free, on-line training, and there are many other organizations offering training. If you have questions about CHCN’s selection of AAPC or are looking for other resources, please contact Maria Faer, Director of Training at email@example.com.
- CHCN selected the on-line, self-paced training offered by the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC) after consulting with clinic leadership (CMOs, fiscal managers) and analyzing a number of free and vendor trainings, including CMS, Brown Consulting, and a number of others. The online, self-paced training responds to the requests of the clinics and providers that the training be available to individuals from either their office or home over a period of months.
- Over 100 Provider Training slots and Crosswalks are available for Health Center physicians and mid-level providers such as nurse practitioners. Each provider selects the training for his/her specialty (e.g., mental and behavioral health, family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, etc.). EACH Provider who signs up will receive a crosswalk for the 50 top diagnoses for his/her specialty. A VALUABLE TOOL.
- CHCN will provide each Health Center with one (1) complete ICD 10 Crosswalk containing over 1000 codes. As part of the ICD 10 training, CHCN has purchased from the AAPC a set of crosswalks containing over 1000 commonly used codes — 21 specialty groups, with the top 50 diagnoses per specialty. The Crosswalks will be sent to the Billers at your Health Center who have signed up for the Boot Camp. Click HERE to register on EventBrite for the AAPC ICD Training.
