What is CPT coding, and why is it important in healthcare?

CPT coding, or Current Procedural Terminology coding, is a standardized system used to describe medical services and procedures performed by healthcare providers. It is crucial in healthcare because it helps ensure accurate documentation, billing, and reimbursement for medical services. CPT codes provide a common language for healthcare providers, insurers, and regulators, facilitating transparency and consistency in healthcare billing and claims processing.

What are the key differences between CPT and ICD-10 coding?

CPT codes describe medical procedures and services, while ICD-10 codes classify diseases, conditions, and diagnoses. CPT codes are used for billing and reporting medical services, while ICD-10 codes support patient care by documenting the reason for a service or procedure. Both code sets work together to provide a comprehensive picture of patient encounters.

About our Training Plans

HIAlearn Training Plans are developed to educate the coder in specific coding topics that have proven to be problematic. They are designed to focus on one area in detail, providing the coder with a thorough clinical knowledge of the diagnosis or procedure utilizing videos, photos, and valid websites to aid the coder in fully understanding the topic. Official coding advice and scenarios are utilized to integrate the clinical knowledge provided. Once you complete all the lessons within one course, a 10 question quiz follows. Upon completion, students will have a thorough knowledge of clinical concepts and coding guidelines of the particular topic. Participants have the option to submit their completion certificates to AHIMA, with a selection also available for AAPC CEU(s).  Learn more about us »
