Coding test for a job

    Red face Coding test for a job
    Exam Training Packages
    I have an interview with Humana insurance company, the job would consist of traveling to local doctors offices and checking their charts for correct coding. They have told me that I will be taking a coding test. My question is would anyone know what this test might consist of? I'm thinkng just physician based coding? Has anyone ever interviewed or worked for this company before, and does anyone have any ideas about what kind of test may be offered?

    Thanks for anyone input

    Default coding test for a job
    I interviewed once and didn't know I was going to be tested. After our interview they handed me a PMIC coding book and the test. I just about freaked. My suggestion - take your own coding books. I don't use PMIC and had a hard time finding things because I was not used to the book. This may sound trivial but we are creatures of habit and all code books are not created equal.

    I did interviewed with Humana in Chicago,Illinois and what to look for is the ICD-9 from doctors hand writting too the CPT Coding as well if you passed the coding exam you will ace the test!
