outpatient vs inpatient

  1. Default outpatient vs inpatient

    Was wondering if there will be a different ICD-10 exam for outpatient coders vs inpatient coders (similar to CPC vs CPC-H) or if we will be responsible for knowing both?

    According to previous discussions on the topic, AAPC will only test on ICD-10-CM, not PCS. Therefore, I'm not sure there will actually be a difference between the exam a CPC-H takes and the exam a CPC takes. I doubt there's any difference though.

    Good to know - Thanks!
