2018 Rural & Community Health Coding & Documentation Bootcamp

Rural & Community Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS) or (CH-CBS)

Training and Certification Prep Class


“Learn More to Earn More”


Why Attend?

  • With the April 2016 requirement by CMS to require RHCs to provide HCPCS code-level detail (CPT and HCPCS-2) – it has never been more important to make sure you are documenting and coding for 100% of what is done. 
  • Billing is not supposed to change – but if you aren’t documenting and coding correctly, revenue may be left on the table! 
  • With Information Technology finding its way into more areas of medical facilities the difference between clinical documentation, professional coding, and medical billing have never been more important. 
  • Learn about the guidelines that appear before and after key coding sections that rarely are accessible to providers and coders/billers in their EHRs and encoder software.
  • We will limit the review of codes that will rarely or never be performed in your facility setting – but will review the CPT cover to cover including guidelines, appendices, and modifiers with focus on level of visits and preventive services.


Who is the Class For?

Team-based training is encouraged!  We recommend the class for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, and facility and financial managers who work in rural health clinics, small rural hospitals, and CAHs.


What is Being Taught?

The Rural Health Clinical Documentation & Coding portion will be taught live from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on both days. The Rural Health Billing and Health Billing portions will be accessible in two 1.5 hour sessions of webinar training within 1-2 weeks after class. 


Earning the Rural Health or Community Health Coding and Billing Certification:

Upon completing both sections of class, authorized attendees can take a 100 question online examination.  If a score of 75% is achieved, a certification of Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS) will be provided by the ARHPC.  Full attendance includes the live training sessions, a one year ARHPC membership, billing webinars, and the testing fee.


After You Pass the Optional Examination:

A certificate will be provided along with annual CEU renewal requirements and membership dues based upon successful test completion.  If the test is not passed the first time a free re-test is available.  The test must be taken within 45 days of the last day of class or a fee of $75 will be charged.  To maintain the certification, CEU requirements must be met along with payment of membership dues payable one year after the date of the class attended.   


Cost: $399 Per Person

(Includes class slides, 1 year membership if you pass the exam, billing webinars, and exam fee for optional CH-CBS or RH-CBS credentials)
