Wendy..as you well know, there  is a big difference in billing and coding.

I would suggest that you look at our courses at medicalbillingstudycourse.com. The fact that they are online  allows us to keep them updated.
Are you planning to work in a facility or have your own business?

Be happy to recommend some of the specific courses to you depending on what your plans are.

You are welcome to look at our site at medicalbillingstudycourse.com or email me at merry@nebazone.com for further information.

Wendy,

I'm not familiar with AHIMA but it looks like a billing course.  If you want to start a business you may want to consider our courses on just the medical billing business.  We have a bundle with the two courses that will teach you how to operate a medical billing business and how to market a medical billing business.  Many times people learn billing but they don't know anything about the business side of it.  As with anything, you must know how to run a business in addition to knowing how to bill.  Marketing is the most difficult part of getting a medical billing business going.  Our online courses will help with both of these topics including things like how to write a contract, compliance plan, and marketing strategy.  This forum is also a great place to get information both from previous posts, and by posting any questions you may have.

Best wishes in your new endeavor!

AHIMA is inpatient coding certification...

As Merry said, coding and billing are very different and IMHO require their own training. What's nice about a billing company is that you can "add" coding later with proper certification and training and it's an add on service. :)

Wendy - One of the best free medical billing education's you'll ever get is reading what is on this website. Start a notebook, read everything this site has to offer, write down questions, and ask the people here. There are some excellent billers on this site that can help you out. If you're ready to take the plunge, sign up for the medical billing course Alice and Michele offer. I did, and it really helped. This will get you off to a smooth start. Best of luck!  :)
