ICD-10 Proficiency Assessment

The assessment will measure your understanding of ICD-10-CM format and structure, groupings and categories of codes, ICD-10-CM official guidelines, and coding concepts. You should prepare yourself as you would for other exams or assessments. To ensure employers continue to have confidence in a certified coder’s ability to accurately code the current code sets, AAPC certified members will have two years to pass an open-book, online, unproctored assessment.
The ICD-10-CM proficiency assessment is required for all AAPC credential holders (excluding CPPM®, CPCO™, and CIRCC®), and you will have 3.5 hours to answer 75 questions on ICD-10-CM only (ICD-10-PCS will not be covered in the assessment).
A mock proficiency assessment will be offered online once AAPC begins ICD-10-CM code set training (September 1st) so that you can practice and become familiar with the assessment prior to taking it if you choose. Please share this information with your chapter members.
