The California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with your local county medical society and the California Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), is now offering 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 will 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 Code Set Course Manual and ICD-10-CM Code Set Draft Book. 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 and will have access to AAPC’s online ICD-10-CM Assessment Training Course through December 31, 2015.


To register, please call (800) 786-4262. Space is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional dates will soon be added in the areas of Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo and Yuba/Sutter/Colusa counties. Check the events page above for updates.
