Would anyone have any good ways or idea's how you may have prepared for this exam and what exactly we can take in to the exam?
Hi,Please visit https://www.aapc.com/certification/cpco.aspx#tab-2 for a list of approved references you can use during the examination.
When I took my CPCO exam, I placed all documents in a large binder, neatly organized by dividers.
Anything and everything in the binder must be published. You may not include published study guides, practice exams, or published references by HCCA.
In addition to the link above, also print and place the following in your binder:
Print anything and everything. Keep it neat.
Now... how to pass...
I highly recommend that you know the OIG Compliance Program guidance inside and out. Prepare as if you are about to teach the material to a college class with you being the professor.
This is not an easy test. You need to know the material.
Some will approach you offering a course to you. These are fine and may help.
Best of luck to you!
I just took the CPCO exam on March 27th. @sab001 are you stating that we are allowed to bring in a binder with all the resources that are tied/linked to the online training? I thought we could only take into the exam the reference book and or the Individual, small practice, Hospital, Hospital supplemental, and the third party compliance CFR? I only brought the stated allowed information that is under the approved materials and would have loved to have all the resources printed and in a binder!
As for the exam- yes study as you are preparing slides or going to present a compliance program and read each question carefully. I finished with an hour left on the clock but did not get to review all my questions I wanted to double check.
