    Yes I have been coding in an orthopedic practice for 15 years and decided to take the cpc exam, I will be attending a coding camp by codingcert next month do you think this will help and also if I have only coded in orthopedics will I have problems passing this test. Can you give me some pointers?
    Thanks

    I never did the bootcamp but I heard it's good. I used the AAPC Review Book which had review tests that helped out a great deal. Good luck!

    I only had coding experience in laboratory. I used the AAPC book and took a couple of coding classes at a local college. I had no problem passing. Good luck!

    I had NO experience in the medical field and took the AAPC self study course and passed the CPC exam with no problems. Just remember to code per CPT rules and not what the payors are wanting and you'll be fine.
