Are you a coder that wants to learn more about auditing? Maybe you’re an auditor and you’re finally going after that CPMA® auditing credential through AAPC. Either way, we’ve got a product for you here at CCO. Hi there, my name is Chandra Stephenson, I’m the program director at CCO and I wanna talk to you for just a minute about our Medical Auditing Blitz. The Medical Auditing Blitz is the latest in our Blitz Products. If you’ve not seen our Blitz before, the Blitz Products are intended to be a review course. Once you’ve either had a full course geared at a certain credential or if you’ve got quite a bit of experience in a particular field, but you want a short, little review of everything that’s gonna be on the exam, our Medical Auditing Blitz is just that. Let’s take a look and see what all is included in this particular product.
With the Medical Auditing Blitz, the focus is on the breakdown of the CPMA® exam. We’re gonna talk about the six sections included according to the AAPC website. We actually go through each one of these in great detail and cover all of the pieces included according to the AAPC site for what’s on the exam. When I say the AAPC site, we talk through the exam structure, question breakdown, tips for preparing, why you wanna go after this credential, who auditors are, what they do, all the different types of auditing available out there. But this is what I really wanna focus on. We give you the breakdown section by section by section. We tell you right up front how the exam is structured, what the requirements are, how long you have to take the exam, if it’s proctored or not, if you get a free retake, what the cost is, and everything ties back to the AAPC sales pages. So we show you right here, this is one of my favorite slides, right, we show you the breakdown of the exam, how many questions, or what percentage of the exam is in each area. And then if we take a look, I’m gonna show you the sales page that I’m talking about on the AAPC website where they talk about their certification exam. For example, according to the AAPC page, if we look down here, here are the six sections that we have said on our slides we’re covering, right? That we’re gonna go through as part of the Medical Auditing Blitz. What we then do is we go through each one of these sections in detail. If you expand it, they tell you how many questions and the topics. We cover each of these topics. We go through the pertinent facts that you need to know about each one, and we give you more resources to go look at to make sure that you have that information. We step section by section through here, make sure that we cover every single topic that’s addressed on the certification exam.
So if you are a coder looking to get into the auditing field, you’re an auditor, you’re wanting to get that certification, you’ve got experience in the field, or you’ve been through a full course, the Medical Auditing Blitz is probably for you. If you’re a coder and you wanna know more about auditing but you’re not sure you wanna take a full course, again, the Medical Auditing Blitz may be right for you, because it’ll tell you all of the different areas included and give you a baseline of where to start your studies if you haven’t already reviewed those materials. If you’ve already reviewed it, it’s a great summary to go back through everything and make sure you learned all the important and pertinent pieces that you’ll need for certification. So I hope this answers some of the questions that you’ve had about the CPMA® and the Medical Auditing Blitz, and hope to see you in a future course very soon. Happy learning!
