    I'm taking the exam on Monday but feel like I'm still going in blind. It will be interesting to see what the study guide looks like when it comes out. The only problem I have with it is that we are only allowed updates to coding guidelines and our CPT, ICD-9, and HCPCS books.

    If I were doing an audit, I would have access to all of these websites they sent us to study too. There is no way to memorize all of the information.

    Anyway, I figure take it this time to see what it's like and hope for the best.

    The study guide is out - it is called Medical Record Auditor by Debra Grider (AAPC) and is available thru the AMA.

    Hi MHcpc,
    As long as you know you are not auditing/abstracting the whole test, like the exam breakdown says, you will only audit/abstract approximately 20 healthcare notes. The remaining is all the other items under the breakdown:
    • Legal/Regulatory Issues
    • NCCI Edits
    • RAC Audits
    • Quality Assurance
    • Statistical Sampling
    • Documentation Requirements of Medical Records

    You will need all (3) books CPT, ICD-9 & HCPCS. Don't forget to bring an audit tool (allowed 2) & a copy of the DG's '95 & '97. I forgot to bring a watch & the clock on the wall was not visible to me. Good luck!

    Found out today that I passed!! Wow that was really fast. Wasn't expecting the results so quick. I do have to say this was the hardest test I've taken. The exam committee did a great job quizing my knowledge.

    Took it on 12/5. Yesterday the site said pass and today it is saying pending again but when you click on it my score is there (which is a passing) but it is saying pending. I'm confused. It seems like the site is messed up. Makes me wonder if maybe I didn't pass it but I'm a worry wart.

    Took it Saturday. Too much stuff on compliance that I honestly did not know. I don't think I passed but guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I am preparing to take the CHC with the HCCA in Feb. so I have been studying up on compliance. I think this test will help me prepare for the CHC exam. I had trouble with some of the case studies. There were things on there that I do not audit.

    I took mine on 12/5 as well and yesterday mine said pending with the score which was passing, now it just says pending and the score is missing. Is anyone else having this issue?
