Certified Emergency Department Coder (CEDC™) Preparation Training Course

Emergency Department Coder Preparation Training Course

With 43 out of 100 people visiting the emergency department (ED) each year, it's safe to say that the demand for CEDCs isn't going anywhere. And these visits come in all shapes and sizes — with 40% of patients per year treated in less than 15 minutes, and 14% requiring hospitalization, critical care admission, or hospital transfer.

Dealing with the unexpected for medical coders working in emergency medicine is cited as the best part of the job. It's also why the average salary for coders with the Certified Emergency Department Coder (CEDC™) credential jumps to $62,175 annually.

Employers have confidence in CEDCs, which is why you should pursue this specialty certification if you're a coding professional working in the ED. AAPC's online CEDC Preparation Training Course will ready you for the exam with a comprehensive review of ED coding — including an E/M chapter with ED coding examples using both the 1995 and 1997 CMS Documentation Guidelines.

Training Objectives

  • Review documentation issues for common ED diagnosis codes and conditions
  • Review CPT® and CMS E/M guidelines pertaining to the ED
  • Understand common procedures performed in the ED
  • Review the most missed concepts on the CEDC certification exam
  • Gear up with a practice test mirroring the format and structure of the CEDC exam

Training Content

  • Interactive audio/video lectures and online exercises
  • Practice test with 10 cases and 35 multiple choice questions
