    CPMA or CDEO?

    I have both. I recommend the CPMA first, followed by the CDEO at some point. Both are valuable to an auditor. The CPMA is specific to auditing. The CDEO focuses on clinical documentation. They go hand in hand, in my opinion but the CPMA is the horse while the CDEO is the cart.

    CDEO Study Guide

    Riddle me this, oh wise ones. Would any of you have a suggestion for a single resource to provide the following information? Maybe not so much the ICD-10, but I would LOVE to find a single source to study for 1-5 instead of having to research every condition individually. The CDEO exam...

    CDEO Study Guide

    That is disappointing, to say the least, if it proves to be true. I've been told by numerous people at AAPC over the past year that it was being edited and would be ready in summer 2016, then fall 2016, then December 2016, then May 2017 and lastly that it was still being edited but they no...

    CIMC and CRHC

    To those with a specialty credential in Rheumatology/CRHC,.... It is my understanding that Rheumatology is a subspecialty of Internal Medicine. If you have a Rheumatology/CRHC credential, would you advise to first get the Internal Medicine/CIMC,... or just go for it and do the...

    Wiki Help....7 th digit -a/d

    Did healing begin? If yes, it is subsequent. The threshold between "A" and "D" is the point at which healing begins. If not, for instance the patient still needs surgery before the healing process can begin or the patient's fracture still needs to be set, then they are still receiving active...

    CPMA exam

    Yes, that was the focus when this thread was posted in 2015. When this thread was resurrected recently it was an inquiry into the poster's exam results and if her exam results qualified for a passing score.
