Phlebotomy Program Overview
The Phlebotomy program at LBCC is designed to train students quickly and effectively in the necessary techniques of a phlebotomist. Education is structured according to a comprehensive, handson approach that combines classroom, lab work, and cooperative work experience to leave students well equipped to enter the workforce. Though Oregon doesn't require phlebotomists to hold certification, many employers and other states do, so this program prepares students to take the certification exams.
In order to ensure as many employment opportunities as possible. This program is based in Lebanon, OR. The entire program lasts only 16 weeks, with the first 12 weeks based on classroom and lab work and the last 4 being comprised of cooperative work experience. Despite the relatively short length, the expected commitment during that time is significant. Students should be prepared to devote 35 hours per week to this program. The required cooperative work experience may be based in hospitals,.

Q: I currently hold a certification with NHA as a Certified Billing Coding Specialist, and working in the field. My certification exam was on ICD9. A: If you're going to go with AHIMA you can stairstep up, but I don't want to sound critical, but I've not heard anybody get a job as a CCA. I think if you even think you can do it, just get the CCS through AHIMA. Don't mess around with the CCA. And again, take a mock exam, and if you do well with it, you're already working in the coding, if your certification was in ICD9 that's great, but there's still CPT in there and you need to be familiar with that. If you're going with the AAPC and you're going to.
Get the CPC you really need to know your CPT. If you're going to get a CPC you need to know your CPT because a physicianbased is done on CPT for reimbursement, so it's heavy on that. Q 18: How is this going to affect home healthcare? A: Well, it's interesting that you say that. I worked in home health for a while and there are going to be some changes, but I can't tell you what there are going to be. It's really interesting; I haven't done that for over five years now or six, maybe. I can't remember how long it has been. It's all based on Medicare with them pretty much.
