CHONC ™ (Hematology & Oncology) Certification – Any suggestions on preparing for this exam?

CCO does not currently offer a course, blitz or practice exam for the CHONC™ exam.  

The CHONC™ examinee will be tested on:

  • Ability to read and abstract physician office notes and operative notes to apply correct ICD-10-CM, CPT, HCPCS Level II and modifier coding assignments
  • Evaluation and management (both the 1995 and 1997 Documentation Guidelines)
  • Rules and regulations of Medicare billing including (but not limited to) incident to, teaching situations, shared visits, consultations and global surgery
  • Coding of surgical procedures performed by Hematology & Oncology physicians 
  • Medical terminology
  • Anatomy and physiology

We recommend the CHONC™ AAPC study guide and practice exams for the CHONC exam.

You can join the CCO Club and search for Hematology & Oncology related topics and ask questions you are struggling with or need clarification on in your exam prep.
