Free Webinars (and Free CEUs)

Free Webinars (and Free CEUs)

AAPC’s free quarterly webinars are a great benefit for members seeking convenient educational opportunities, as well as no-cost continuing education units (CEUs).

Past topics have included an introduction to the Quality Payment Program, an overview of MACRA, and the future of diagnosis coding. The most recent webinar, “Hashtag, Pound and Keeping Up with the Code-ashians,” posted in June, discusses the rapid evolution of healthcare and how to stay abreast of new ways to conduct business.

Free webinars scheduled for the remainder of “Audit Findings in 2017” include “CMS Final Rules (PFS, OPPS, IPPS): Explore the Changes for 2018” (coming in September) and “Audit Findings in 2017” (coming in December).

To access the webinars, go to www.aapc.com/membership/quarterly-webinar.aspx. Or from the AAPC homepage (aapc.com), click on Member Benefits under the Resources tab at the top of the page, and then choose the link for “Free CEUs.”

Each webinar is approximately one hour long, and worth one CEU. There are six webinars available, currently. Additional webinars will be added each quarter. Be sure to check back often!

    Can you please advise me as to how I add the CEU code given at the end of a quarterly webinar to my profile? When I go to my CEU tracker to add CEU’s, the Webinar code (beginning with AAPC060……) didn’t work in the index # field..

  2. stephanie bunting says:

    Paula did you figure this out? On your member page bottom left is a field to enter the certificate #. It is called CEU tracker. AAPC folks are great you can always call them for assistance.

    Peace, Stephanie

    I really enjoyed my first Webinar and would like the information in a format where I can print it or save to my computer. Is there any way to obtain that?

  4. mary shepard says:

    If we are audited, what is our proof of watching these seminars? There is no certificate you can print out. You do get a code, but how is the code proof if audited. The healthcare monthly tests yourself, you get a certificate and not just a code.

  5. Dave Blackmer, MSC says:

    Jessica – These webinars don’t currently have any way to print their transcripts or save them, I’m afraid. However, they will live online for the foreseeable future (I haven’t heard any plans to remove any), so you can come back and refer back to any of them as often as you wish.

    Mary – In the CEU verification process, we’d skip over any of these free webinars that were submitted, not requiring a certificate. Our webinar subscription system has a whole process built to deliver certificates just to those who have access and complete the post-event quiz, but with these free webinars being more openly accessible to all members, we can’t use the same concept.

    Sushma,
    I was very surprised that no one had offered you any advice on free CEU’s that are AAPC approved.
    I have found several besides the quarterly webinars –
