Medical coding is the transformation of healthcare diagnosis, procedures, medical services, and equipment into universal medical alphanumeric codes. The diagnoses and procedure codes are taken from medical record documentation, such as transcription of physician’s notes, laboratory and radiologic results, etc. Medical coding professionals help ensure the codes are applied correctly during the medical billing process, which includes abstracting the information from documentation, assigning the appropriate codes, and creating a claim to be paid by insurance carriers.

I would like to say that OS2 is a great experience. The course is very detailed and the staff has been very helpful when help is needed. I would recommend this company to all who are interested in learning medical coding.
I can honestly say I have nothing but positive things to say about the OS2 risk adjustment training course. It is extremely thorough and very user friendly. I have done quite a few online coding courses elsewhere and OS2 has the most instructor to student support/communication I have experienced. Unlike the other programs I've done, I feel that OS2 not only sets you up to pass your exams, but to succeed in the "real world".
I believe my knowledge as a coder is getting better than I was last year. This pre-season training courses are very essential and benefits for being a great coder. Wish I had this training last year. My favorite part is to see video rational and help me understand coding step by step. Also all managers are very friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. I really recommend this training to someone who wants to be a HCC coder. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to take these courses.
I'm very glad that I decided to join the OS2 Pre Season Training Program. I learned a lot and I'm looking forward to the next phase of my training. The curriculum is perfect for both new coder and season coders. As a RHIA and an AHIMA remember, it gave me some exposure to the outpatient aspect of Medical Coding and AACP. It gave me boarder knowledge and balance of Medical Coding. The training modules/Moodle is user friendly. The staff are friendly, very helpful and professionals. I would highly recommend the training program to colleague and OS2 to clients.
Great class for anyone who does not have a lot of coding experience, this course prepares you for the CRC exam. By just focusing on the chronic conditions this allows you to become a specialty coder. The Interaction with the student learners and faculty is dynamic, good learning tool.
This has been an outstanding experience. I have been studying coding for over a year and half and I have gained more knowledge in the short period of taking this course then in the several months of studying on my own. The staff is so helpful and polite, most of all very patient.
