Rural Health Documentation & Coding Bootcamp


Become a Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist
October 24-25, 2017

This class is designed for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, facility and financial managers that work in Rural Health Clinics and small rural hospitals.

Full attendance includes the live training sessions worth 11 CEUs with class slides, a 90 day ARHPC membership that extends to one year if you pass the exam, the billing webinars, and the testing fee for the optional certification exam.

Upon completing both sections of class (as verified by registration information maintained by VRHA and ARHPC) authorized attendees will be able to take an optional 100 question online certification examination.  If a score of 75% is achieved, a certification of Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS) will be provided by the Association for Rural & Community Health Professional Coding.

Why attend?

  • With the April 2016 requirement by CMS to require RHCs to provide HCPCS code-level detail (CPT and HCPCS-2) – it has never been more important to make sure you are documenting and coding for 100% of what is done. Billing is not supposed to change – but if you aren’t documenting and coding correctly, revenue may be left on the table!  Increase revenue and reduce compliance risks.
  • We will present a detailed review of the AMA’s 2017 CPT Professional Edition from the perspective of rural health focusing on the services typically provided by Rural Health Clinics and small rural hospitals. We will focus on the guidelines that appear before and after key coding sections that rarely are accessible to providers and coders/billers in their EHRs and encoder software.
  • With Information Technology finding its way into more areas of medical facilities the difference between clinical documentation, professional coding, and medical billing have never been more important.
  • We will limit the review of codes that will rarely or never be performed in community health – but will review the CPT cover to cover including guidelines, appendices, and modifiers with focus on level of visits and preventive services
