2 Day Bootcamp Information - This project is funded under a grant awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Grant Number U58CS06816.


What's new for 2019 - Student Workbook - Optional workbook with copy of slides and class exercises available for purchase at An electronic version will be available free of charge.

Who is the class for: This class is specifically designed for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, facility and financial managers that work in FQHCs and look-alikes to encourage building a shared foundation of knowledge.  We will provide action Items and how to “get results” by working together through hands-on practice.

What is Covered & Agenda

How well do your clinical providers know the rules: Do your clinical providers know the documentation rules related to capturing the valuable services they provide?  What type of training do they have on the differences between coding and billing?  How long has it been since they received updates?

  • Does your facility have a full record of each service provided (CPT/HCPCS-II codes) and why they were done (ICD-10-CM codes) regardless of whether you get paid or not?
  • Are you generating all of the revenue that you are entitled to when billing non-Medicare/Medicaid payers?
  • Are you reporting quality measures related to Shared Savings, Risk Adjustment, HCCs, or other Quality Improvement programs?
