CPC-H Coding Exam Review 2007: The Certification Step / Edition 1

This book highlights important content necessary to pass the CPC-H exam. It includes all the content sections found in the exam AND two full practice exams with answers and rationales. Using a general outline format, the text covers anatomy and terminology for each body area, reimbursement issues, and an overview of CPT, ICD-9-CM, and HCPCS coding. Unit IV contains a pre-exam, modeled after the actual AAPC CPC-H certification exam. Also included is a bound-in CD-ROM with a post-exam, (which has the same content as the pre-exam), along with a final exam.

• Basic outline format, with figures for reference as needed, provides quick and easy review for students.
• Text highlights important content information required to pass the CPC-H exam.
• Bound-in CD-ROM contains a post-exam to give students more practice with the electronic format, especially now that the actual CPC-H exam is administered via computer.
• CD-ROM also contains a final exam modeled after the actual AAPC CPC-H certification exam.
• IER contains various course planning tools that allow the instructor flexibility to adapt the book to classroom needs.

• Includes suggestions for how instructors can implement the new practice resource The Extra Step: Facility-Based Coding Practice.
• Additional quizzes for extra assessment (located on the CD-ROM) give instructors another resource to readily test their students' knowledge.
