Click on the topic button(s) below to display helpful FAQs!



Q: What is CodeProU?

CodeProU is one of several business lines operated by Lisa Selman-Holman, owner and principal of Selman-Holman & Associates. Lisa is one of homecare's leading experts on ICD-10-CM coding and OASIS and has been providing training to home health and hospice agencies for over 14 years.

CodeProU was launched in 2014 to address the demand for online training. CodeProU online training is produced by the Home Care Information Network [HCIN] who also markets, sells and supports CodeProU agency and individual subscribers.

Q: Is CodeProU a university?

CodeProU is a privately held for-profit enterprise and is not a university or institution of higher learning.

Q: Is financial assistance available?

CodeProU does not provide financial aide. If you are unable to pay in full at the time you place your order, consider checking into the PayPal Credit option displayed on the HCIN Store home page.

Q: What can you tell me about coding job opportunities?

Coding opportunities exist in...

  • Medicare-certified home health agencies
  • Medicare-certified hospice programs
  • consulting organizations providing coding services for home health and hospice clients
  • outsource coding companies who focus on the home health and hospice provider market
Coders may be employees of an organization or function as an independent contractor.

Q: I'm looking for training to be a biller/coder. Can I get it from CodeProU?

Maybe, maybe not! CodeProU training is for individuals who work - or want to work - as professional coders in the home health and hospice provider segment. In our market, billers aren't coders and coders aren't billers. The general term biller/coder typically describes a combine role in other healthcare segments - but not home health or hospice!

Because CodeProU training is specific to the home health and hospice provider segment, it is not recommended for individuals who are looking for general billing/coding training that prepares them to work in other healthcare segments.

Q:So is CodeProU training specific to home health & hospice coding?

YES! CodeProU online training is specifically designed and produced for those seeking a role of a professional coder within the home health and hospice provider market. It is not generic training on coding.

Q: Where do I start?
  • This is a commonly asked question. While it helps us to know where you're coming from (like health care training, education, experience) we've listed the most common scenarios below, all based on lots of conversations! Which one most closely describes you? Use that one for guidance on where to start. Take your time and investigate the recommended training programs. And if after reviewing you're still not sure, contact HCIN for help!
[1] You are a clinician currently working in a homecare setting...

You have an education in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology and you're pretty darn familiar with what goes on in a homecare setting (i.e. a Medicare-certified home health or hospice setting). You have had little or no formal training in coding. You have had little or no experience coding. Your goal is to be credentialed professional home health and/or hospice coder.

[2] You are a clinician in some other healthcare setting - but not a homecare setting...

You have an education in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. You are not familiar with what goes on in a homecare setting (i.e. a Medicare-certified home health or hospice setting). You have had little or no formal training in coding. You have had little or no experience coding. Your goal is to be credentialed professional home health and/or hospice coder.

[3] You are not a clinician and have little to no background in healthcare...

You don't have prior education or training in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. You're not familiar with what goes on in a homecare setting (i.e. a Medicare-certified home health or hospice setting). You have no prior formal training in coding or coding experience. Your goal is to be credentialed professional home health and/or hospice coder.
Here's our recommendation, listed in order:

  • Complete an anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology training course before you start any code training program.
    • Consider this Online Anatomy & Physiology Course it does include many references to pathophysiologies.
    • CPU4776 is not A&P101; it's a extensive review for existing clinicians with prior education in A&P.

  • CPU5387 | ICD-10-CM Coding for Hospice | Level 3 [Preparation for HCS-H Exam]
[4] You are an existing coder in an other health care setting and need to code for home health and/or hospice...

You have an education in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. You are not familiar with what goes on in a homecare setting (i.e. a Medicare-certified home health or hospice setting). You may already be a certified coder and may or may not seek a homecare coding credential.

  • Contact HCIN directly with your specifics. For hospitals and health systems, we can assemble a package of online programs to get your coders oriented to home health and hospice settings along with specific training needed to code in home health and hospice.
Q: Do I need a coding manual? Does the CodeProU training price include the coding manual? Where can I get a current coding manual? How much is it?

Yes, you must have a current ICD-10-CM coding manual before you start your CodeProU online training! No, CodeProU training does not include a current coding manual! Suggestion: order your coding manual in advance and having the book in-hand before ordering your CodeProU online training. It's also important to know that each coding year aligns with the federal government fiscal year - Oct 1 through Sept 30 - so plan on ordering a new code book every year.

Click this link for the current coding manual Lisa Selman-Holman uses and recommends for home health and hospice coders. The price is on the displayed page.

Q: Are other code training materials & tools required?

CodeProU subscribers can download all training presentation handouts and other pertinent collateral as appropriate; these support your training - along with the coding manual.

Other commercially-available tools like these are optional.

Q: Will I get a code certification when I'm done?

You will get a certificate of completion from the HCIN system - but this is not to be confused with the optional & voluntary certification aka credentialing process! CodeProU provides the code training...and a separate 3rd-party entity provides code certification/credentialing. It's important to note this entity -and not CodeProU - determines credentialing fees and policies.

CLICK THIS LINK to peruse information on the home health and hospice code certification credential available from the Board of Medical Specialty Coding [BMSC].

Q: The BMSC site doesn't tell me where the nearest computer testing center is! Can you help?

Yes, you need to be a trained detective to find that info on their site...however I can provide some clues!

The good news? Tests are administered at PSI Testing Centers world-wide. To find one near you CLICK THIS LINK and follow my clues highlighted in the picture shown below! If needed, use your browser zoom control to enlarge the pic.
