Credentialed Medical Assistants

Did you know that a recent Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) decision positions your medical assistant status as even more valuable to healthcare providers once you become certified?

Under the CMS rules established in late 2012, credentialed medical assistants can enter orders into the medical record for the computerized provider entry (CPOE), a task previously limited to licensed healthcare professionals. This means that medical assistant students who become credentialed can offer additional workflow efficiency and compliance benefits to their employers. This could heighten program exposure and credibility, and potentially provide valuable partnerships opportunites with local providers, which translates to increased placement rates.

Coming Soon:

ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Continuing Education Training

ICD-10 is happening- and it will change everything- not only for healthcare organizations that uses health information but for students who are currently training using ICD-9 -CM or former students who were trained under ICD-9 CM. As you know, October 1, 2015 ICD-9 -CM will replaced with ICD-10- CM and ICD-10-PCS. As with any changes (ICD-9 CM is over 30 years old), difficulty and confusion will be present. However, be rest assured that if you understand ICD-9- CM converting to ICD-10-CM should not be a problem if you get started now!

What Should You Do:

  • Enroll in our Free 4-week program beginning in October (Saturdays 12-2 pm)
  • Purchase Understanding Health Insurance 11th Edition- A Guide to Billing and Reimbursement.
  • Purchase Ingenix ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS
