CPT Coding 101 for Non-Coders


Filing accurate claims that bring in optimal reimbursements is a team effort, and if you, your staff and your providers don’t have a solid understanding of basic CPT language and format, your claims are doomed to significantly reduce, delay and deny reimbursements. But, it doesn’t have to be this way…

Your entire team can quickly gain a firm grasp on what you REALLY need to know so you can improve your CPT coding accuracy and boost your overall pay-up – all in only 60 minutes.

National coding expert, Dawn R. Cloud, CPC, CMSCS, CHCI, CPOM, has a quick, down and dirty, CPT Coding 101 online training session that can make it happen. By viewing this step-by-step, plain-English training, your entire team will gain the skills necessary to allow you to file cleaner claims and improve your claims’ reimbursement.

Here are just a few of the practical, usable tactics you and your team will receive by taking advantage of this 60-minute online training:

  • Master CPT manual symbols – without them you’re guessing at the right code
  • Easy-to-understand E/M guidelines that will give you confidence in choosing your levels
  • Stop letting modifiers get in the way of correct payments – learn where they really belong
  • Maneuver through your CPT manual faster and easier AND pick the right code
