    I am new to ER coding. Can anyone recommend a really good class to attend to learn how to code for ER and especially E&M coding.

    When I first got started in ER, I went to a Conference offered by ACEP. American College of Emergency Physicians. It was great. Their website has very useful information pertaining to Emergency services for both outpatient and facility. Hope this helps....

    I am going to start doing ER coding around April and was wondering the same thing. Could you share any info you may receive and maybe we could help each other out and network.

    ACEP is a good start. They actually have a coding seminar in early June in San Diego. They do that twice a year in pretty nice spots if you can get your managment to pay. Also some of the state chapters do coding seminars.
    ED Coding Alert is a pretty good publication. Very good on procedures. They are always having introductory offers.
    AAPC now has a separate ED certification. I ordered the practicum. And it is pretty good. Most is written by Dr Gravonsky who is a an ED Coding Guru
    Speaking of ED Gurus. If you see a seminar with Caral Edelberg; Todd Thomas; Jim Blakeman; John Stimler DO or Dr.Gravonsky. All are very knowledgeable and present well. One warning, all have slightly different takes on ED coding. But that makes it fun.
    I didn't include myself since I'm a GIT (Guru in Training).
    But I would be happy to join as well.
