Does the course require any previous experience or training?
No. However, because of the fast-paced nature of the course, it is highly recommended (but not required) that participants have at least one year of experience working in a long-term care setting. However, the course starts with Medicare fundamentals and does not assume that participants have any particular background or experience. Familiarity with the MDS and the ICD-9-CM and HCPCS coding systems is helpful, but not required.

The course is taught using a combination of lecture, class discussion, and hands-on exercises/case studies.
