Advanced Coding for the Physician’s Office
This nationally recognized Advanced Medical Coding for the Physician's Office (ACPO) online program will teach you diagnostic and procedural coding using CPT, ICD-9-CM (Volumes I and II), and HCPCS Level II coding manuals. This is an advanced program, designed for students with previous medical coding experience. Prior to enrolling for this program, you should have already completed basic coding education or the ed2go Administrative Medical Specialist with Medical Billing and Coding (AMS w/MBC) or Medical Billing and Coding program.
Preparation for the Certified Coding Specialist Physician-based (CCS-P) certification exam is included in this program. The textbook for this program and the guide for certification preparation are provided. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.
Please note that this course is for coders who are seeking training in advanced physician coding, not hospital coding. It is designed for coders working in, or seeking employment in, a physician’s office, clinic, or group practice.
This program is compatible with Windows XP and later operating systems and IE 7 and later browsers. It can be taken on either a Mac or a PC; however, most medical offices currently use PCs. Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Acrobat Reader are required for this program.
ed2go will provide you with your program textbook and a current-year edition of the Professional Review Guide for the CCS-P Examination. As current coders seeking more in-depth knowledge, students should already have a set of coding books. They are not provided by ed2go. Students are expected to have their own current-year CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM coding books.
The Advanced Coding for the Physician's Office program is not an entry-level program. This program is designed specifically for students who have previous coding experience or education, such as the ed2go Administrative Medical Specialist with Medical Billing and Coding (AMS w/MBC) or Medical Billing and Coding program.
If you intend on partipating in the CSS examination, you must meet one of the following requirements:
All of our programs are self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start them when you want and finish them at your own pace.
