Course provides training to help radiology coders prepare for ICD-10
BEDFORD MASSACHUSETTS – JULY 1, 2013 – The Radiology Coding Certification Board (RCCB), a radiology coding credentialing organization accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), has approved Libman Education’s online Anatomy & Physiology for Coders course for 23 CEU Credits.
This marks the third major credentialing organization to award CEUs (continuing education units) for taking the course. Students of Anatomy & Physiology for Coders are also eligible for 24 CEUs from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and 6 CEUs from the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).
Anatomy & Physiology for Coders is a 12-week, online, self-paced course that prepares medical coders for the anatomy-intensive requirements of ICD-10-CM/PCS coding. The course includes a comprehensive and complete review of major body systems, as well as videos, interactive educational games, and full-color anatomical drawings. Students get immediate knowledge to use in current ICD-9 and CPT coding.
ICD-10 is a high priority for radiology groups. Due to the upcoming ICD-10 transition, radiology coding faces important changes that require thorough preparation. With anatomy and physiology being fundamental to understanding documentation and applying ICD-10 codes, Anatomy & Physiology for Coders is a foundational ICD-10 course.
RCCB is a not-for-profit organization established in May 2000 to promote the highest standards of radiology coding through the credentialing of radiology coders. Certification demonstrates a commitment and interest in providing only the highest quality radiology coding in compliance with federal regulations. The RCCB is a fully autonomous entity, independent of any other association or society. This independence allows RCCB to maintain integrity concerning policy matters related to credentialing.
RCCB issues certificates to individuals who successfully meet its standards, adhere to those standards, policies and procedures, and prepare for and pass the certification exam. These individuals may present themselves to the public as Radiology Certified Coders using the designation RCC following their name. This certification is recognized as a sign of achievement and excellence. A listing of credentialed radiology coders will be available for dissemination to the public.
