Unit 1: The Fundamentals of Coding. This unit covers the purpose of coding. It also provides a broad overview of billing codes and describes how codes are used to document the services provided during a medical visit.

    Unit 1 is intended for beginner coding clinic staff who have never done medical coding before,
    or would like a refresher course in basic medical coding.

    nuances of selecting the appropriate code and capturing all of the elements of a medical visit.

Unit 3: Advanced Case Studies in Coding. This unit provides a range of complex, reproductive health-focused case studies for coding staff to test their skills.
