Overview

This review focuses on passing the CPC exam and is organized in an easy-to-follow, general outline format. It has been completely updated for 2005 and covers anatomy and terminology for each body area, reimbursement issues, and an overview of CPT, ICD-9-CM, and HCPCS Coding. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a timed, scored, 150-question practice exam that is modeled on the actual certification exams and is designed to be taken twice - once as a pre-test and once as a post-test. An additional final exam must be taken with paper and pencil, to simulate the experience of the actual examinations.

• The companion CD-ROM allows users to track their learning through Pre- and Post-tests.
• A basic outline format provides figures for reference as needed, making the text easy to use and understand.
• Essential information for both the AAPC (CPC) and AHIMA (CCS-P) exams is provided, with important aspects of physician coding highlighted throughout the text.
