    Exclamation Any Advice for outpatient coding?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hey everybody.
    I am due to take a coding test for an outpatient coding position and wanted to see if anybody could advise me on what to expect or review.. I use to be a coder for path/lab but have been out a couple years due to the birth of my first child, but I am eager to get back into my field and want to do my very best on this test. Thanks for all of your help!

    Guidlines, and Modifiers. understand them and know them ... all of them.
    ,I mean they give the answers you just have to pick the most/more correct one.
    but Knowing what your modifiers do and when they can actually be used will save you alot of time.

    for instance, you wouldn't use a modifier 92 with a 99212 would you?

    LT and RT and knowing bilateral stuff helps... eliminate the incorrect answers faster.

    Gooooood Luck Friend.
