Hospital Coding Certification
Certified Outpatient Coder-Hospital Outpatient (COCTM)
Course Cost: $1,800
Outpatient Ambulatory Coding jobs are growing faster than ever before. As physicians move away from private practice and join hospital groups, career opportunities in Outpatient Facilities such as Ambulatory Surgical Centers or hospital outpatient billing and coding departments are opening for coders. The COCTM exam validates your specialized payment knowledge needed for these jobs in addition to your CPT® and ICD-9 coding skills. Invest in your future with the COCTM certification---those with the COCTM earn 61% more than non-credentialed coders.
The healthcare industry is highly dependent on skilled and qualified medical coders to accurately record, register and keep track of each patient's account. Medical Coders really don't have too much interaction with insurance companies and patients. This job is perfect for someone who would prefer to spend time analyzing and coding data. Every duty performed in a medical office has a particular code assigned to it, and it needs to be coded properly in order for proper billing. The Medical Coder and Biller often work together to make sure all invoices are paid properly.
The goals of our certification programs are to provide job-specific training to enable students to be job-ready with our 16-week or 20 week online programs.
