Facility coding (hospital coding) is one of the best-paying sectors of the coding profession. If you're already performing some aspect of facility coding, the Advanced Hospital Coding (AHC) course will fill in the gaps, making you a more marketable employee. If you're currently working in a physician's office or other ambulatory care setting, this course will give you the edge you need to advance in the workplace.
Hospital coding is rarely an entry-level position, and most hospital coders are required to be certified. AHC covers advanced, hospital-specific coding and billing procedures and is designed to help you meet the challenge of today's changing standards. This course utilizes your existing knowledge of medical terminology and healthcare sciences. Upon completion, you will receive a voucher to take the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) exam. Certification exams offered AHIMA only offers in-person exams in both the US and Globally.
