Hello,

I was just hired by Mckesson for a remote coding position, I am very excited, but a little nervous about the SCC internal exams. Has anyone taken these exams, can you share you experience with taking these exams, and do they fire you if you don't pass these exams, or are there re-takes. I'm afraid to leave my current position to think in a few months if I don't pass these exams I will be without any job. I have years of coding experience, but not sure what they are looking for.

Any infomation is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Danyel1971:

I was hired with McKesson as a remote anethesia coder on July 2 and am still waiting for my SCC exam to be scheduled! I think because I live in a rural area (north Mississippi) they are having trouble finding a testing site. But as far as what they are going to test us on, there is a review packet in your Welcome information which is really basic stuff-what ICD and CPT codes are, etc. The tests we are given should be related to the specialty we will be coding for (so anesthesia for me). If you have experience, I wouldn't worry. I think it'll be pretty easy, even with the 5 hour time limit. I believe if we fail, we are given a certain time frame to study some test booklets and take the tests in the booklets-something like 3. If, after the re-takes, we still fail, then yes they let us go. So I am reviewing the ICD-9 guidelines and the review packet they sent, and given it's going to be in my area of expertise, I think I will be fine. Good luck to you and let me know how it goes!

McKesson has its own certification program, and I was told by one of the coders there that it is tough. She was allowed to take it two or three times for each of the training modules. They want you to succeed, so it is not a punitive program. The most difficult part is that you have to prepare for this while working full time and meeting your objectives.] I know you will enjoy it. Good luck!

So how much do you all get paid for this remote coding position. If I could get something like that I would save lots of money on gas

How did your test go? I start on 8/6 but have not been given a date to take the test yet. Just wondering if it is anything like the CPC test.

Has anyone taken this test? Was it hard?

I had a second interview with Mckessen and they told me this is an 8 hour test not 5 like you're telling me here! I guess I don't understand why they wouldn't give you this test prior to hiring you?

Hi, I have a second interview with McKesson next week. A little nervous. Interviewing with 2 people for an hour and a half? Was your interview like that? Can you give me some back ground on the steps? After the interview, do you test first basic icd cpt, then offered a position, etc...do they train you via web or do you have to go somewhere? You can email me directly if you want. I seem to be reading mix answers!
Any help would be appreciated...hope you are liking it so far.

Question

Does anyone know if McKesson will hire newly schooled Coders? Would it be more efficient to have some field experience first? Thanks in advance :)
