Certified ED exam

  1. #1
    Default Certified ED exam
    Medical Coding Books
    Has anyone taken the CEDC exam? Is it for physician based urgent care or facility based ER? Thanks for info

  2. Default Neither
    The CEDC is for ED physician documentation/coding for hospital or free standing EDs. I don't think there is a specific exam for ED facility services ( maybe there should be!). Urgent care codes are pretty much E&M outpatient/office codes so most likely covered in the CEMC, but I defer to coders who have taken the test.

  3. Default Certified ED exam
    For CEDC Exam,you should concentrate on E/M 1995 &97Coding guidelines, Anatomy &Physiology, Medical terminology, ICD9 Coding Guidelines and Coding of surgical procedures performed by ED Physicians, shared visits, Coding of moderate sedation,EMTALA, and Medicine section.

    Wish you good Luck.

    Thanks,
