Q10 I’m taking my CPC exam in April, do you know if I can use my CPT A No, no, no. Alicia No. Laureen Do not use old manuals. Can you Yes. Should you No. Alicia No. Laureen You’re paying $300, why do you want to risk having to go take it again.

You’re better off investing in a new manual than having to pay to take the exam again.
That being said, for this year you can get away with a 2013 ICD9 because the codes are basically frozen. There’re no new codes for this year, and I don’t know if they could do that for 2012 as well. Did we have that many changes for 2013 ICD9 I don’t think that many, but definitely CPT you need to have current year. Alicia Yeah. Laureen Q11 Are there any remote jobs for apprentice coders A There are. They’re very hard to find. That’s why we’re excited about Practicode and with Practicode they don’t care if you have the A after your credential. What.
They care about is your proficiency. When you log into Practicode and you start coding those practice cases your scores is going to be horrible at first. Overtime, with practice, especially when you stay in one area of focus like radiology, or family practice, or cardiology, you will become proficient at that particular specialty and then you go and you apply for a job with Aviacode and say, Hey, by the way I’m a Practicode user and this is my proficiency score. They will pay more attention to that than the fact that you don’t have.
