Overview


Packed with test-taking tips and techniques, the OFFICIAL CPC CERTIFICATION STUDY GUIDE delivers a current and comprehensive review that is the ideal prep for the AAPC CPC Certification Exam. The guide begins with a complete summary of the business of medicine, ensuring a solid understanding of the medical office and the role of the coder. It covers ICD-9-CM guidelines using real-life examples. Each body system is reviewed, including coverage of anatomy, related diagnosis coding, CPT coding, HCPCS Level II coding, and modifiers. End-of-chapter questions are modeled after those on the actual certification exam, and operative notes give readers further hands-on experience coding what they have learned. An end-of-guide practice exam gives readers additional practice putting their skills to the test.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I think the book was great. It has pictures, which allows students to relate to what the codes should be used for. It was to the point but had enough information to allow the student to pass the exam."Kimberly Hockaday, Carrington College; Reno, NV

"Prior to me taking the CPC exam, I used this study guide to help me prepare for the exam. With that being said, I passed the exam with no problems."Monica Carmichael, Miller-Motte Technical College; Charleston, SC
