Qualified Candidates eligible for discounts for courses written by nationally recognized Coding Experts Lynn Kuehn and Gail Smith
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – July 30, 2019 – Libman Education announces the Award10 financial support program to provide discounts to qualified candidates purchasing education related to the changes in the ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, and CPT code systems for fiscal year 2020. The Award10 program was launched to address the financial burden on some coders who do not receive employer support for ongoing education.
“Staying up-to-date on changes to the coding systems is a critical professional obligation of every coder,” said Barry Libman, MS, RHIA, CDIP, CCS, President of Libman Education. “Where employers are often able to take advantage of group discounts for training their teams, individual coders who pay for needed training out of their own pocket can now receive a similar discount to help defray the cost of these critical updates. It still requires a focused effort on the coder’s part to be ready for FY2020, but we want to make it a little easier.”
In the recently completed 2019 HIM Professional Census, HIM Professionals identified two significant challenges in doing their job: (1) keeping up-to-date with changes to coding systems, and (2) the cost of coder-specific professional training. (One-third of respondents stated they receive no reimbursement for education required to do their jobs.) In response to these challenges Libman Education released the Award10 financial support program which offers reduced tuition to individuals who do not receive reimbursement from their employer for the FY2020 updates.
Libman Education Code Updates courses are authored by nationally recognized coding experts Lynn Kuehn, MS, RHIA, CCS-P, FAHIMA and Gail I. Smith, MA, RHIA, CCS-P. The courses are unique in their approach: rather than a focus on memorizing the key changes in the codes, the authors provide tremendous insights into the application and nuances of the changes.
The ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Code Updates are available now; the CPT Code Updates course will be available in late November. Individuals who are eligible for discounts (individuals not reimbursed for professional education by their employer), should apply the special coupon code Award10 at checkout to receive 10% off the price of each course.
