CPC Exam

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I took the CPC exam to be a certified medical coder today. It's a 150 question exam with a 5 hr 40 min time limit and I managed to finish it. A lot of people run out of time before completing it. I finish school the end of next week and the results for this exam should be posted week after next. It has a 40% fail rate and I am really hoping I passed it on my first try. I really don't want to have to take it again.

I wish you the best of luck!  Here are some test vibes vibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.giffor a happy outcome.  I was actually looking at class for this very thing at a local community college last night.  I do a lot of coding on my job, don't really have any trouble with ICD-9 but the CPT codes can be confusing.  I use them to get authorization for procedures and a lot of times have to call a surgeon's office or the hospital for help.

Thank you. I think the ICD-9 coding is easier to understand. Some of the ops reports had both the CPT and ICD-9 codes on them and I used the ICD-9 codes to select the right answer. I think it's really harder because of trying to know enough about the procedures to code them. I am completely lost when it comes to some of the neuro stuff.
