AHMS 210 - Basic Medical Coding


Credit(s): 3

Prerequisite(s): AHMS 144 .
This course introduces basic coding information for CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM coding sets, focusing on learning guidelines and assigning CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM codes to a wide range of abbreviated coding scenarios covering different body systems and medical specialties. Complete source documents will be used periodically and AHIMA’s Standards of Ethical Coding will be reviewed. Basic billing & reimbursement issues will be discussed. (Coding will be taught for the physician reimbursement, not the facility, so ICD-9-CM will not be covered. These are covered in the Intermediate Coding classes.) (Fall and Spring Semesters)
