    Can anyone tell me how is CCS-P exam? Are they similar to CPC exams or different?? Any help would be great. I am thinking about taking CCS-P exam in near future.

    Thank you

    The exams are different. The CCS-P exam has chart notes that you code CPT and diagnosis codes from, so it's a bit more medical records based.

    Question Ccs-p
    Hi Pam,

    I am also planning to take the CCS-P soon, would you be a little more specific. You mentioned chart notes, are you referrring to Op notes? what would you recommend as the best study resource for this exam? I have the Review guide by AAPC but there's not much "study" material there, it's basically "mock" exams. How would you suggest I prepare for the diagnoses and therapy portion? I would greatly appreciate any tips you can provide.
