Here is a common question about best CPC coding materials I get this time of year so I thought I'd make a post out of it to be able to refer people to.

Hello LAUREEN,

THANK you very much for your time on the phone yesterday.

Right now i need to make up time due to the wrong direction of the correspondence school.

I am cutting my ties with them.I want to get on track with the correct materials right away.

I would like your choice of textbooks, ICD9, HCPCS, CPT, ANATOMY, MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY that i can purchase from you to coincide with your blitz videos purchase for the CPC exam. Is it a good idea to purchase ANATOMY AND MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY used from AMAZON.COM since anatomy of the body doesnt change every year?

Anyway, i will get all the materials from you so i know everything is correct for the CPC certification exam.

Please email me all the information as soon as you are able.

Thanks,
DC

 

 

For your CPT manual I HIGHLY recommend the professional version (vs. the standard version) because it has more bells and whistles that you will actually use on the board exam. Here is a link to the one on Amazon.

For ICD you mentioned you were going to possibly be doing some inpatient coding training after getting your CPC®, since that is the case I'd recommend you get the Version that has volumes 1,2 & 3. Volume 3 is used by inpatient hospital coders to code procedures instead of CPT. Having the extra volume won't hurt you if you're just doing physician based – you just won't use it. Here is the link for the version I use currently:

For HCPCS you don't need anything too fancy

BEST VALUE
For a combo package of the above three manuals here is the link (currently selling for $279.11)

Now as far as a good medical terminology and anatomy book you can go used but I've just reviewed a new book titled “Medical Terminology & Anatomy for ICD-10 Coding”. It is the only book I know of that is geared towards coders. We like it so much we are going to be offering a course using it as the main text starting March 1st, 2012. Here is the link on Amazon:
