Thread: Hiring New Coder

    Question Hiring New Coder

    AAPC: Back to School
    My company is in the process of hiring a new surgery coder. My Supervisor is wanting to provide a small test, just to see if the potential coder knows how to code surgery's. Does anyone know of a place where we can get a "test" for the potential coder to take? One that has basic questions on ICD and Surgery Coding. That we can get pretty quickly.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you,

    Meagan CPC

    Default test for potential coder

    My suggestion would be to take a few of your own op notes (HIPAA compliant of course) and have the potential new coder code them. Watch while the test is being taken to see if she uses the books correctly.
