This series was designed to provide basic, foundational knowledge and skills on coding and managed care for audiology front office and billing staffs.
This Front Office Boot Camp Module Series is designed to be an introductory, fundamental course in compliance, coding, and managed care and to address the staff roles in the revenue cycle (from scheduling to payment) processes for front office and billing personnel who are new to audiology and/or hearing aid dispensing.

Module #2: Terminology and audiology lingo
Module #3: Basics of coding: Basic CPT, HCPCS, and ICD 10 coding, modifiers, and place of service codes

This entire course will be geared SOLELY to front and back office staff. It is NOT intended for audiologists. No continuing education will be offered.
It will be introductory and basic in nature and designed to meet the needs of new office hires who have little to no knowledge of audiology or audiology practice management. This course would be a precursor to and is not intended to replace the Audiology Resources Boot Camp: Foundations of Audiology Practice, Advanced Boot Camp or Hearing Aid Revenue Cycle traveling events.
