The newest savings for SFMS members is access to discounted ICD-10 training through the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).
The California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with SFMS, will offer statewide, two-day ICD-10 code set seminars in Summer 2015. CMA/SFMS has negotiated a reduced price of $399 for CMA/SFMS members; AAPC typically charges non-members $799 for this course.
The training is designed specifically for coding staff and intended to give attendees a comprehensive understanding of guidelines and conventions of ICD-10, as well as fundamental knowledge of how to decipher, understand and accurately apply codes in ICD-10.
Training is provided onsite in a classroom format and would be conducted over two days, including 16 hours of intensive general ICD-10 code set training along with hands-on coding exercises. Each attendee receives the AAPC ICD-10-CM Work Book and recently published 2015 ICD-10-CM codebook. The onsite training course is approved for 16 continuing education units (CEU) through AAPC. Following the onsite training, attendees will be given an ICD-10 proficiency assessment to ensure understanding of ICD-10 concepts and guidelines.
A list of seminar dates and locations will be posted to the SFMS website as they become available.
