The CEDC is pro-fee driven, so if you have 5 years of experience you should do just fine. I highly recommend the Practicum to get a feel for how the questions will be asked. Depending on the protocol for your group, the test may code higher or lower than what you are used to.

Good Luck!!!

I have never done any work in Medical Billing & Coding. I took a 3 month course offered by my employer and PMCC and I passed my first time. Just take your time and you will do wonderfully!

Is there a lot of questions regarding the difference between the 1995 and 1997 guidelines? Any other "tips"? thanks

I will be taking the CEDC exam in 3weeks. I been coding EDs for 4 years now and have been going over the practium over and over and find myself memorizing the answers because I did them so much. Im scared that I wont do good because of this.
