You'll need access to both of the main medical coding books we'll use in this course: 2007, 2008 or 2009 CPT manual, Professional Edition 2007, 2008 or 2009 ICD-9-CM, Physician Edition The spiral-bound editions are recommended for both books. The course works equally well for all three years of the books. These books can also be purchased from the following locations: www.Half.com, www.Ebay.com, www.Alibris.com, www.abebooks.com, www.chegg.com (you can rent or buy here).No prior medical experience is required, but knowledge of medical terminology and human anatomy will be helpful.
Question: I have 2011 ICD9 data on my iPad instead of having the books. Is this acceptable for the course? I am very interested in taking the course.
Answer: It’s not the instructor’s preferred way for them to do it because it doesn’t give them the opportunity to learn to use the books (a look-up just requires you to plug in a number or a phrase to find the information rather than use the book as a resource), but if that’s the only way they can manage it, it’s been done before. They would still have to get the CPT manual, as that is not available for free digitally. The other way to get free manuals, paper ones, is to call around to doctors’ offices to see if they would be willing to give out their old copies. The course works with all books from 2007 to 2011.
Question: The question is, the medical billing & coding is only for US medical system or for both BC & US medical system?
Answer: The Medical Coding course recommended only for students residing in the United States.

- "If you are interested in learning about medical billing and coding, you will not find a better place to begin, nor a better person from whom to learn. Thanks to Jennifer I ve found a new career. Her knowledge, gentle coaching and encouragement were key to building my confidence and my understanding of a complicated subject. Along with my highest recommendation and appreciation, I give Jennifer five stars!!"
- "I have been a certified coder CPC with the AAPC for three years now. I have been a medical biller for 20+ years now; but, since I do not code per se, I felt a beginner s course would help me keep up on coding. Thanks, the Medical Billing Coding class did do this for me."
- "I wanted to thank you for the way you conducted this Medical Billing Coding class. You made it fun and intriguing. There were some obstacles, but they were challenging to jump."
- "Thank you for your expertise and professional organization of such a course. I have found a "remote" job from an insurance company. A RN adjudicator is mentoring me. I am so excited."
- "Thank you so much, I have spent a lot of money on other courses and did not learn as much as I did in this Medical Billing Coding class."
- "Your teaching method is EXCELLENT and very easy to understand! I have two friends in our church that are taking this course from other institutions and they have been with their course close to 18 months and one has graduated and last week after the 2nd lesson I was able to help her understand the Superbill and where to place the different codes correctly. I am enjoying this class very much and looking forward to what more you have to teach me. THANK YOU!"
