The Institute of Healthcare Management at Manor College has been created and designed to address the issues of the professional men and women in the healthcare industry.
In order to keep up with the pace of today’s healthcare requirements, medical staff may need to increase their efficiency, knowledge, and skills of current procedures. At Manor College, we can train your staff to become certified medical billers and medical coders.All employees in the medical field will benefit from our Medical Terminology/Survey of Anatomy and Physiology courses regardless of their position. See below for a complete listing of other courses and programs.
We offer a wide range of practical topics with maximum impact and clarity. Qualified instructors and counselors will discuss real world, current practices and procedures.
We will help you:
- Augment your career
- Prepare for a career change
- Enhance your technical skills
ATTENTION MEDICAL CODERS AND CODING STUDENTS:
ICD-9/ICD-10 UPDATE from MANOR COLLEGE:
To maintain AAPC certification, current certified coders must take and pass a proficiency test which begins October 1, 2012 and ends September 30, 2014. This is one year before implementation begins which is October 14, 2014. Here are the details as we know them:
- Online, timed, 75 questions, open book
- May use any resource available to complete
- $60 exam – includes 2 attempts to pass
- No CEUs
Of course this policy was in place prior to the delay and new announcement, so the dates may change.
The CPC certification exam has not yet been changed to include ICD-10 coding. Until that time, coding students will be taught and tested on ICD-9 coding procedures. This is actually a better scenario for current students and current coders. When the change takes place you will not need to take the CPC exam again, just the proficiency test! Everyone expects the new CPC exam with ICD-10 to be more difficult.
The Continuing Education Department at Manor College will remain alert to any and all new compliances and will keep you posted. We will begin teaching and preparing students for ICD-10 as soon we know when the CPC exam will be changed. We will also be teaching ICD-10 classes probably in the fall of 2013 for existing coders who will need to take the proficiency exam.
