Packed with test-taking tips and techniques, the 2014 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 the 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.
