your employer wont expect for you to know everything right off of the bat. Im a CPC-A and i got a coding job for a nationwide derm practice with NO experience and i took a coding test which had real patient charts from old visits and old surgeries years ago. In the real world they have so many resources and cheat sheets that you can use. i passed the test and my employer said i did better than people with experience. My point is dont be scared because you'll learn it and it will become really simple over time. No matter what the company will show you how they code to receive reimbursement. Meaning the use of modifiers and etc. Since im a realist im going to be honest no matter if u are a CPC, CPC-A CPC-B CPC-C with a B.S. the company will train you. My last point is i know people at my job that are CCS (Inpatient) with years of experience but when they came to another job they still had to learn the Billing system,Coding, and other coding guidelines for the job.
