Is there a cheaper way to earn CEUs?

  1. Question Is there a cheaper way to earn CEUs?
    Medical Coding Books
    I am currently unemployed and don't have a lot of extra money to pay for webinars. Could someone please let me know if there is an inexpensive way to earn CEUs. I received my CPC-A certification in July and need to earn 13 CEUs by May 2011.



    Thanks,

    Cheryl

    The Coding Edge Magazines and Edge Blast emails are excellent ways to earn inexpensive CEUs as the Magazine is included in your membership fee.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheryl:

    Don't forget local chapters. All the local chapters that I attend allow me to do so free of charge; the information and networking are quite valuable.

    Lastly, search the net for free CEUs. Medicare's website has several modules that provide free CEUs. Truthfully, about 90% of the CEUs I report bi-annually are free (no cost). The exception for me is my course work in HIM.

    Good luck to you. BC Advantage also has free webinars; they also have a very affordable subscription service for their magazine and that allows access to other free CEU opportunities.

    You can also check out websites from device manufacturers such as www.bostonscientific.com, www.medtronic.com, www.spineline.com. These sites, and more, offer webinars every month or two, with something going on every month at least from one of them. They offer free webinars with 1-2 CEUs each time. Its a great resource to learn something new also.

    Default Cheaper CEUs
    Another option for you is MedLearn. They will offer occasional free webinars full of great information! If you register with them, you should receive emails about upcoming free webinars as well as their coding compliance questions of the week -- I've learned a lot from those! I also have a subscription to JustCoding.com. It is $100 for the year, but you can earn CEUs quickly and easily by reading a few short articles and taking a 5 question assesment!
