    Default CPMA resources for chemo, psych, pt

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone offer guidance as to where to find coding guidelines for chemotherapy, psychiatry, and physical therapy as they relate to the CPMA exam? I have the NAMAS and AAPC study guides but they don't cover all of this.

    Look in the Medcine section of your CPT. There are guidelines for the documentation and coding of psych, chemo and PT.

    I would also advise you to consider the Medicare guidance on these subjects. Although I have yet taken the exam, it seems the most overt guidance on these areas has come from the CMS program.
