Billing Education and Training

1. Physicians and Allied Health Providers: Coding/Documentation Training Sessions

The compliance staff offer on-going training sessions for physicians and other allied health providers in both general and specialty specific coding topics (CPT and ICD10). Please call the Compliance Office to schedule a training session or to discuss specific needs at (858) 657-7487 or email Claudia Lewis at cplewis@ucsd.edu.

2. Annual Coding Updates for Billing/Coding Staff

An Annual CPT and ICD9 coding and training in-service for UC San Diego Health employees is held at the beginning of each calendar year. Training is geared towards staff who are responsible for abstracting and coding for physician services. Clinic nurse managers are also welcome. The in-service is accredited by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) (4-8 CEUs). Although there is no charge to UC San Diego employees, pre-registration is required to ensure space.
