    Default Quick easy question for anyone who has taken CCC exam

    Do you really need the HCPCS book for this exam? I am taking tomorrow and I am pretty sure that the only HCPCS will be a few A and J codes for nuclear studies. If anyone knows otherwise, please just drop a quick response!! Thanks so much!

    I did not need the book for this test now, unless they have changed something.

    Oh, thanks so much for your response. That is what I was thinking. I work for a huge Cardiology practice and we do not even order one yearly being that we only use the codes for nukes and such. I was going to have to plan clandestine meetings with people to get my hands on one and I wanted to see if I really needed it before I went through so much to get one.
    Thanks!

    Thank you! I am ready for it I think. I will for sure take my time. Not too nervous. Right after I take it I have to get on a plane for Dallas for a Cardiology Conference. So, it's more a matter of feeling overwhelmed and over booked.

    I know the conference. I checked into going but decided not to. When you get back maybe you can share anything you learned with me! I went to a icd10 workshop yesterday and learned alot. Take care

    Default MedAxiom Conference
    Just came back from Dallas yesterday. This was one of the most informative conferences I have been to in a great while. The biggest impact that they touched on, other than the new cath codes, was the changes to the lower leg interventions. Namely the PTA's, atherectomies and stents. The new bundled interventions will include the catheter placements. There is really no more first-second-third orders. It is now referred to "territories." The three are the following, Iliac Vascular Territory which incl. the common, internal and the external. The Femoral/Pop territory which consists of the entire area and is considered a SINGLE vessel for CPT reporting, specifically for revascularization. Lastly, the Tibial/peroneal territory -3 vessels anterior,posterior and the peroneal arteries! Cath and S&I are all included as well as stent and diagnostic image criteria is based on the day it was performed either prior to or on same day and MUST be well documented. It is all really exciting information. I would be welcome to share or try and answer any questions. Like I said..EXCELLENT PRESENTATION!!!

    Sure, I will fax you some info. My test went fine. I was finished in about 4 1/2 hrs. I went back and double checked some things but all -in -all I feel good about it. My grade is still pending as I check everyday. I really hope I did well. Thanks so much for asking.
