Want to get back to coding
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:36:08 PM »
Hi, I am new to the forum. I graduated in 2017 with an associates for medical coding and reimbursement. I put my resumes out but I only had 2 interviews and 1 offered me a job, i took it. The problem is, it is for medical billing, there is no coding what so ever involved. I never got certified for coding. I want to get back to the coding, but am unsure of how to do it. Is there a course I should take or should i get an updated ICD 10 book and a practice book to prepare for the test? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Did your degree qualify you for the coding exam?  There are always changes, but there really haven't been any big changes since 2017.  Are you just looking for a refresher before you take the test?  If so, I would go with the practice tests.

Yes, i am just looking for a refresher before i take the test. I know there are always changes, that is why I asked, just wasn't sure which way to go. Are the practice tests online or do they need to be purchased? Thank you!!

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with any coding course enough to refer.  :(  I was hoping someone else might make a recommendation.

If you Google "AAPC CPC practice test" or "CPC practice test", you should be able to find some for free.
