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.
Someone qualified as a CPC is a huge benefit to a medical practice. They can check and control the coding of the various services undertaken for a patient, judge the diagnoses and processes involved in a medical claim and ensure the paperwork of records and invoices are maintained and issued correctly. This in turn brings a benefit to the medical practice they work for in the application of a proven and recognised billing system that is based on professional standards. It helps to increase the profit, reduce the costs and improves all round efficiency!
The CPC exam lasts for 5 hours and 40, minutes and encompasses 150 multiple choice questions. Continue reading
