    AAPC: Back to School
    Podiatry Today has some good information, along with some webcasts. Obviously it is geared towards podiatrists, but there is some coding info there.

    Default Podiarty Experience and Education

    I am currently working for a podiatrist and have exactly one year of experience; I have found no classes out there but the best that I have found was to join the AAPC, take basic medical terminology, anatomy,and physiology courses online and then prepare for my Certified Professional Coder's course. You can order a coder's companion for podiatry. Knowledge is what you will gain and experience at the office will make a more efficient coder

    I attend a seminar every year put on by McVey seminars. Dr. Warshaw is a podiatrist and CPC with some really great input in podiatry coding. You even get this great book which I reference alot. www.mcveyseminars.com

    Default Podiatry Resource

    The Podiatry resource I use and find very helpful is Optum (used to be Ingenix) Coding Companion for Podiatry.

    Default Podiatry Coding Resources

    I also code podiatric claims, but have the advantage of having worked many years as the doctor's medical assistant. (That was the easy part!!)

    As for actual courses, I am no help, but if you ever have the opportunity to attend a seminar conducted by Michael Warshaw, DPM, CPC, CPODCS, COCS, CSFAC, FACFAOM, make every effort to go! He is a practicing podiatrist and obviously well versed in billing and coding. The manual he writes for his seminar is referred to by many as the "Bible of Podiatry Coding". I refer to it often.

    I don't know if he sells it separately, and it is not a "basic" level resouce. It is written with the assumption that the coder already understands most of the procedures and diagnoses.

    OptumInsight (formerly known as Ingenix) publishes a Podiatry Coding Companion that might be helpful. It is arranged by CPT codes. After each procedure, there are explanations of the procedure, coding tips and applicable ICDs. Also included are definitions of terms with which you might not be familiar (and lots that you will already know!).

    Maybe one of these will be of some help. I'm also happy to help if I can. You can contact me at cherylcpc.netpod@gmail.com.

    Default Seeking coding companion

    I am trying to locate a used coding companion someone isn't using. I did hunt them online for way over a coders salary. I don't mind it being 2012 or even 2011 if it hasn't had much changes. email me, peggyharmon@hotmail.com thanks.
