ICD-10 training seminars coming this summer

Area(s) of Interest: Professional Development & Education 


The California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with your local county medical society and the California Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) will offer statewide, two-day ICD-10 code set seminars this summer.


The training is designed specifically for coding staff and intended to give attendees a comprehensive understanding of guidelines and conventions of ICD-10, as well as fundamental knowledge of how to decipher, understand and accurately apply codes in ICD-10.


This American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) course is the gold standard of training for coders and is being offered at a tremendous savings. CMA has negotiated a reduced price of $399 for CMA members and $499 for California MGMA members. The program is also available to non-members for the reduced price of $599; $200 of that may be applied to a new CMA membership following the course. AAPC typically charges non-members $799 for this course.


Training is provided onsite in a classroom format and would be conducted over two days, including 16 hours of intensive general ICD-10 code set training along with hands-on coding exercises. Each attendee receives the AAPC ICD-10-CM Work Book and recently published 2015 ICD-10-CM codebook. The onsite training course is approved for 16 continuing education units (CEU) through AAPC. Following the onsite training, attendees will be given an ICD-10 proficiency assessment to ensure understanding of ICD-10 concepts and guidelines.


CMA will announce the dates and locations of these seminars soon.
