CPC Study Guide

The purpose of the Certified Professional Coder exam (CPC) is to demonstrate that those who have passed have the knowledge and experience to be able to code in a medical practice, being able to apply reason and understanding as to why specific codes should be used and being able to do it quickly and accurately.
