Question COBGC exam

Messages

Hi, I am CPC certified from more than 6 years and working as a coder. I am preparing right now for COBGC certification. I bought COBGC study guide and practice exam from AAPC. I do not have experience coding in OB-GYN yet. Does this study guide and practice exam would be enough to schedule a test? Just thought to ask you that to give test for COBGC certification do we need experience in coding for ob-gyn for few years? How hard is the exam?
I would appreciate any help from you to decide if i should set up an exam date or wait?

I had more than 20 years of OB/Gyn coding experience when I took the exam and I found that it was difficult, as all of the specialty exams are. I'm not sure I would have passed if I didn't have the coding experience; the hands-on coding knowledge I had definitely helped. I'd suggest you wait until you have some experience. I'm curious as to why you're going to take a specialty exam.

Thank you for sharing you idea. I just wanted to get in to OBGYN coding was thinking if I have Specialty exam certificate than it would be easy.
