This course will cover the basics of Modifiers and will help you clearly understand how modifiers work and how to properly use them. Specific examples are provided so you can be certain on a modifier's proper use.

The course has 5 sections

The answers to all coding exercises and section tests will be from the most current edition of the CPT and HCPCS Coding Manuals.

You will need the most recent version of the CPT and HCPCS Code Books or a subscription to AMBACode to complete this course.

The course is designed with a pre-test for each section, and a final examination. Upon completion of the last section, you will have the opportunity to take the final exam covering all of the sections. When you've completed the final exam, you will be able to print a certificate of completion. The test scores are not recorded until you take the final exam. You must correctly answer 75% of the final exam questions to achieve a passing score. If you do not achieve a passing score, you may retake the test.

Access to this course is set for one year. Average Course Completion Time is 30-40 hours.
