Don’t get caught with these deadly CPC exam mistakes

Nobody wants to know how to fail the AAPC CPC exam, so the following tells you what to look out for. You just need to be aware of certain CPC exam rules that can result in you getting disqualified or automatic failure. You can consider this as a quick checklist of what not to do when you’re in the medical coding certification or AAPC CPC exam hall. So let us discuss what are the things you shouldn’t do that breaks the exam rules.

Leave your cell phone behind

First of all, you’re not allowed to bring your cell phone to the exam. This also goes for any electronic devices like smart phones, tablets, mobile gaming consoles, etc. You wont have any place to stow them during the exam anyway, so the best solution is to just not bring them at all.

laureen-jandroep-message-video

Bring the right tools

With that said, make sure you do bring the required items for the medical coding certification exam. Check with the CPC exam proctors several days beforehand to know what you’ll need. Basically you’ll need a picture ID, your member ID, #2 pencils, as well as the CPT, ICD-9CM, and HCPCS II manuals.

Keep up to date

Remember that the code sets for each coding book are updated every year, so it’s essential for you to have up to date books. Using out of date books would obviously puts you at a disadvantage, with substantial penalization. The exams are updated every January for the new code sets, so you can’t use upcoming year’s book for the exam. Do keep in mind that the exam proctors may not clarify test questions during the CPC exam.

Tabbing your coding books

You’re permitted to tab your coding books for quick reference, whether you inserted, glued, pasted, taped, or stapled it in the manuals. Having handwritten notes in the coding books are also acceptable only if they pertain to daily coding activities. The guideline is that they should be used with the intent to earmark a page with words or numbers, not supplement information in the book.

Keep it to yourself

Finally, any attempt to smuggle exam materials out of the exam hall will result in you failing the AAPC CPC exam. If you exhibit collaborative or disruptive behavior, then it can be cause for immediate action by the proctors. Because the CPC exam materials are confidential, you may not copy or discuss the questions with others during or following the examination. Now that you know how to fail the AAPC CPC exam by breaking the exam rules, be sure to keep all the points here in mind and you’ll do well to pass the AAPC CPC exam.

Get certified by watching medical coding review videos

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to getting help to get you certified as a medical coder fast. You may have the experience and coding knowledge to take the CPC exam, but it is still a good idea to invest a little to get further coaching and advice as part of your preparation. There are no shortage of practice exams, books, prep courses, certified trainers, and review classes that you can use.

Let’s add one more unique choice to the list: coding review videos. Video engage more of our senses, so when we study using coding review videos or DVD, we simply absorb more due to the fact that it is in an audio and visual form. Laureen Jandroep has released her blitz review videos for coding and CPC exam for some time, and since it’s release has been helping students to pass the CPC exam on their first or next try.

Today: Check out her bubble and highlight technique.

Today: Check out her bubble and highlight technique.

So lets review again why Laureen Jandroep’s coding blitz videos or DVD are so much better as review materials:

First of all, you simply get more value from the videos or DVD because you get Laureen personally guiding you through all the steps you need to do to pass the certification exam. Every aspect is covered from identifying areas to focus on, how to maximize your study and exam time, how to mark up your CPT book, time management, and more. Check out her credentials as a certified medical coding and billing trainer and you’ll see why she has a long list of testimonials from past students.

When you do your review in videos, you absorb more information. She is speaking directly to you in the videos, so you pay more attention. You also get to follow along with her explanations and illustrations. Also, videos are less likely to make you fall asleep. If you commute a lot, why not download the videos onto your iPod or MP3 player to squeeze out more review time. When you’re at home, just pop in the DVD.

Not everyone studies at the same pace, so in a classroom environment you are usually either ahead or behind. The blitz review videos is like your virtual classroom, you get to pause, rewind, and fast forward your teacher. And if you have questions that aren’t answered in the videos, you still have her telephone support and access to her private community of experienced coders and billers.

Retaking the CPC exam

If you have failed the CPC exam, trust me, you are not alone. Even though the CPC exam is an open book exam, there are a great many factors to take into consideration. A grueling examination for would-be medical coders, taking nearly 6 hours long, the CPC or Certified Professional Coder certification exam by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) is brutal and does not boast of a very high passing rate for first time test-takers.

First, you must get a passing rate of 70% to pass the CPC exam. It used to be that you need to get 70% on each of the 3 sections of the CPC exam, which means that should you fail to reach 70% on just one section you will not pass the CPC exam.

For this reason, there are plenty of study guides out there to help you get ready to retake the CPC exam. There are a few recommended by the AAPC, as well as online prep courses by experienced trainers and coders that can help you hone your coding skills.

You can retake the CPC exam within 12 months of your failed test without having the pay the hundreds of dollars that the first test cost. That alone should be a relief to you, so now not only do you have the opportunity to sit for the exam again but can do so at no further cost to you. The thing to remember is that you have to take the test within 12 months of the initial exam or you will be charged a fee. Don’t delay too long in retaking the test because all the study you did will still be fresh in your mind. If you have to wait longer before retaking the CPC exam, then you’ll have to maintain your study efforts at a high level to ensure you don’t forget and lose the information you’ve worked hard for.

When you receive your scores, you will be notified which sections were problematic for you, so you can focus your studies and improve on your weaknesses. Being able to fine tune your studies to pass the CPC exam is a great benefit to you. Not only will you see which areas you succeed in, but being able to target your low scores makes it much easier to focus all your energy and effort for the next round. Talk to other students as well as your mentor or coach so you can target the weak areas specifically.

Take more timed practice exams to get back into the rhythm and refine your study and question-answering strategies. When testing day rolls around again, you’ll be more at ease and be better prepared for the CPC exam. Don’t let your nerves get the better of you. Go in with a positive and confident mindset that you’ll do well this time around.

Health, Education and Public Safety | Southwest Tech Presidential … | CPC Test Study Guide Allied Health Education — By admin on July 18, 2014 8:08 pm Health, Education and Public Safety | Southwest Tech Presidential … | CPC Test Study Guide Allied Health Education — By admin on July 13, 2014 10:09 am The following article first appeared in the May 29, 2014, Fennimore Times as part of its “Buzz About Town” series. It is reprinted here with permission from Fennimore Times Editor Rob Callahan.

Thanks to an outstanding faculty and staff, many good things are happening at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College. This is the first of a series providing highlights from around the College.

Today I shine the spotlight on Southwest Tech’s Division of Health, Education, and Public Safety led by Ms. Katie Garrity, Dean. I am grateful for her help writing this article.

This year, 446 Health, Education, and Public Safety students received a technical certificate, technical diploma, or associate degree. The number in each program was Nurse Assistant 245; Nursing 43; Practical Nursing 36; Medical Assistant 31; Dental Assistant 22; Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement 15; Early Childhood Education 15; Medical Coding Specialist 11; Human Services Associate 8; Medical Laboratory Technician 6; Physical Therapy Assistant 6; Direct Entry Midwife 4; Child Care Services 3; and Medical Transcription 1. Because employer demand for medical transcriptionists has fallen away, Southwest Tech last year stopped enrolling new students in that program.

Graduates from several allied health programs must pass certifying exams before they can work, but passage rates verify that a Southwest Tech education well prepares students for those exams. For example, the first-time passage rate for nursing students has been 100%, 100%, and 99% the past three years.

Most Southwest Tech graduates seek immediate employment or use their credential to advance in their current place of work. However, some graduates continue their education either while working or as a full-time student. For example, Nurse Assistant graduates may enter a practical nursing or nursing education program at Southwest Tech or elsewhere. Or, students receiving associate degrees may transfer into a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year university.

For students with an associate degree in one of Southwest Tech’s allied health programs, transfer into a bachelors program has become significantly easier. Starting this fall, Franklin University will be offering the classes needed to complete either a BS in Allied Health Management or a BS in Nursing on Southwest Tech’s Fennimore campus.

The Division is currently developing three new programs. Health Information Technology (HIT) as well as Cancer Information Management (CIM) will be offered entirely online, lead to associate degrees, and begin fall 2014. The College already has accepted 13 students and is processing 6 additional applications for these programs. More students are expected by August. These programs are perfect for those who want a rewarding healthcare career, but prefer to avoid the emotional and physical “messiness” of direct patient care.

The College received funding from two grants to support these programs’ development. An $ 119,000, one-year, state grant from the Wisconsin Technical College System is funding the start-up of CIM. A $ 770,000, three-year, federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration supported creation of the “Southwest Health Network,” a partnership of regional health information specialists. The Network is now helping develop the curriculum for HIT as well as creating collaborative strategies for student recruitment and for training and retention of incumbent health information technology specialists.

The third new program, a one-year technical diploma in Laboratory Science Technician, starts fall 2015. This program will be embedded in the Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) curriculum, meaning graduates will enjoy two options. They can either a) take their diploma and get a job in food processing, chemical manufacturing, healthcare, or any organization needing lab techs or b) complete another year at Southwest Tech and earn the associate degree in MLT. These programs are perfect for people interested in working in a laboratory setting.

Two additional healthcare highlights deserve mention. First, Southwest Tech gave regional healthcare providers an opportunity this year to submit proposals for leasing space in the Health Science Center from which to provide medical, dental, and mental health services to the public. Crossing Rivers Health, previously named Prairie du Chien Memorial Hospital, was awarded the contract and started operation this spring.

Second, the Division will offer two conferences this summer for midwives or those interested in midwifery. Both conferences will feature nationally recognized practitioners.

Southwest Tech’s Public Safety Programs serve thousands of students each year. Offerings include education and training in Criminal Justice (associate degree); Driver Education, Motorcycle Safety, Traffic Safety, Law Enforcement Academy, Jail Academy, Dispatch Certification, Fire Services, Emergency Medical Services, and more.

Driver Education is offered to students in 20 Southwest Wisconsin school districts via contract with those districts and to 400 additional Wisconsin students via online courses.

The Law Enforcement Academy, which must be successfully completed to work as a police officer in Wisconsin, is changing. Through this year, the Academy included 520 hours of training; per State statute and rules, future Academies will include 700 hours. The result will be better prepared entry-level police officers.

Much is going on at Southwest Tech. These are highlights from only one Division and do not even include all of the exciting happenings there! Learn more on the College’s web or social media sites.
