  1. Question CPC vs CPC-H exam
    Exam Training Packages
    Can someone tell me how the CPC and the CPC-H exams differ? Are there a lot of billing/reimbursement questions on the CPC-H exam?

    Default difference
    I think you can look under certification on this website and find out the format of each exam and compare the difference.

    The CPC questions are geared toward the physician coder and the physician office setting.
    The CPC-H is geared toward the hospital outpatient facility coder and the outpatient setting.
    There were billing and reimbursement questions when I took the CPC-H as well as questions about the chargemaster and outpatient code editor, and specific questions regarding the UB-04.
