    Default Prepare for CEDC

    AAPC: Back to School
    I just order the study guide to prepare for the CEDC exam. I am a coder for Nationwide Children's emergency department. Does anyone have any recommendations/ suggestions on areas to study? Thanks!

    I thought the practice exam was helpful. Review the critical care guidelines, fracture care and splinting, cerumen and foreign body removal, laceration repair and burn care along with the ICD-9 coding guidelines (adverse reactions, poisonings, pregnancy complications, sepsis and burns). Utilize an audit tool you are comfortable with to determine the proper E/M level using the '95 Documentation Guidelines. Look over the use of modifiers, too. Good luck!

    Good luck Susan... we could msg each other regarding questions in the study material if you'd like. My email is tonya.ries01@gmail.com, just get ahold of me!
