Orders for 2016 reference guides including a combination of CPT and ICD-10 items will be provided with the option ship all items together or to ship items separately (at an additional fee).  See detailed explanation of your options below.

Consolidated Shipment - Group my items into as few shipments as possible
Your orders will be consolidated into the fewest number of shipments possible. You will receive your order once all items are available.  This may take longer to ship depending on product availability, but there will only be one per-shipment charge. Please be aware that CPT products will not be available until mid-December can potentially delay shipment of ICD-10 products. 

Non-consolidated shipment - I want my items shipped as soon as they become available (at additional cost)
Your items ship as they become available, beginning with those already in stock. You should choose this option if your rorder includes both ICD-10 & CPT products and you want to receive ICD-10 products on or before Oct 1.  

If you are ordering the next year's edition, ICD-10 resources will ship after August 15th, CPT resources will ship after December 15th in the current year. Please see information regarding shipping options and rates above. If you are ordering the current year's edition, it will deliver in 7-10 business days. If you have not received your reference guides within that time frame, please contact a Coding Strategies® representative at 1.877.6.CODING.

Digital Navigators®

Yes, however only one browser session at a time.

The digital access is only accessible for one browser session at a time.

You have to close any screen grabber (or applications that have similar functionality such as the Windows snipping tool, Microsoft OneNote) before opening PDC files. This is one of a number of measures used to prevent unauthorized screen shot copying of content. For instance, if you have an application (process) running which ends in ‘capture.exe’ (e.g. screencapture.exe, m4capture.exe, wincapture.exe) then you will have to close down that process, and any others that end in ‘capture.exe’ by pressing CTRL, ALT, DEL on your keyboard to load Task Manager, and then in Task Manager > Processes highlight the processes and delete them. Unless you do this, the PDC document will not open.
 

Online Learning Center

Coding Strategies'® online courses incorporate information from a wide range of sources to give you a complete and practical perspective on coding and reimbursement. Users will learn from actual dictated reports, sample documentation and assessments throughout each course to gain a complete understanding of your specialties. Webinars are also a great training method but are only designed to give you 60- to 90-minutes of hot topic information and not a comprehensive education on your entire specialty or modality within a specialty.

Unlike generic online learning programs, which simply rehash the information in the code book, Coding Strategies'® courses give you the information you need in order to submit correct claims for your services, including descriptions of procedures, coding guidelines, coverage restrictions, modifier use, bundling issues, documentation tips, etc. Our programs are created by professionals who have experience and expertise in your specialty.

Earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs) upon completion of each course has never been so easy! Contact us for specific course details and CEUs.

Coding Strategies'® e-learning system was designed to give both large and small organizations easy access to measure individual specialty comprehension, down to a course by course level!
