COC® Certification Study Guide

AAPC's COC® Certification Study Guide is a vital tool to help you get ready to take the COC exam. Our experts provide you with a review of anatomy and medical terminology, ICD-10-CM, HCPCS Level II, and CPT® coding, in addition to key payment methodologies such as revenue codes, DRGs, and the Outpatient Prospective Payment System.

The COC® Certification Study Guide will reinforce your COC training, helping you to prepare for both the COC exam and the field — which is why you’ll find each case involves at least two code sets. AAPC believes it’s important to reflect as accurate a coding setting as possible. With that aim, all examples and case studies in this guide are actual, redacted office visit and procedure notes.

Note: This study guide is not an introduction to outpatient coding but a review of outpatient coding concepts.
