Who is the Class For?
We recommend this class for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, and RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, facility and financial managers that work in Rural Health Clinics and/or Rural Hospitals.
What is Being Taught?
The Rural Health Clinical Documentation & Coding portion will be taught live from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on both days. The Rural Health Billing portion will be taught in two 1.5 hour sessions of webinar training within 2-3 weeks after class. The billing sessions will be recorded for those who can’t attend live.
Earning the Rural Health Coding and Billing Certification:
Upon completing both sections of class, authorized attendees can take a 100 question online examination. If a score of 75% is achieved, a certification of Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS) will be provided by the ARHPC. Full attendance includes the live training sessions, a one year ARHPC membership, billing webinars, and the testing fee.
After You Pass the Optional Examination:
A certificate will be provided along with annual CEU renewal requirements and membership dues based upon the date of successful class completion. If the test is not passed the first time a free re-test is available. The test must be taken within 60 days of the last day of class or a fee of $75 will be charges. To maintain the certification, CEU requirements must be met along with payment of membership dues payable one year after the date of the class attended.
