    Hello fellow CPC and CCC's,

    Can anyone of you tell me is there a huge difference in exam and studying CCC than just the standard CPC? My boss and I are looking into to the specialty but want to make sure it is worth the time and money to pursue.

    Thanks bunches,

    The CCC is for Cardiology, you do know that, right? So, yes, there is a huge difference between the two. Are you maybe thinking about something else?

    Yes, there is a HUGE difference in CPC and CCC. The CCC is for Cardiology, you need to have an in depth and I would suggest hands on/working experience prior to taking this exam. I suggest you take a look on the site, because AAPC has their recommendations listed for people who choose to take this exam and what it entails. It's not for a beginner at all....
