Default ICD-10 Exam

The exam is timed, but how much time do you get? Does anyone know? I've searched thru the forum but didn't see anything about how long the exam will be...

Cool ICD-10 Exam

Hello

According to my coding teacher, AAPC has not decided yet if it will be timed or not.

It will be an online, open book, unproctored exam and it will be timed but at this time we do not yet know how long the exam will be. It is 75 questions and once they questions are determined we will then be able to better assign a time designation to it. We will keep you posted on our website with all details as they come out.

I do remember seeing something a while ago in an update about the recert exam.

I remember the 75 questions part. I do not recall though how much the exam is going to be. And, is that price going to include 2 tries?

I was under the impression it would not be timed, but I hope that if it is timed - we're given at least 3 hours. I've seen the ICD 10 book, it is large and there are a lot of differences in looking diagnosis codes up

The draft version of the ICD-10 book is available now. The final version likely won't be available until just before the implementation date, probably mid-2013.

The proficiency exam will be 75 questions and will be timed. The time allowed has not been determined until after the exam is created. The exam will be unproctored, on-line and open resource. The cost for two attempts is $60.00
