  • 25. HCPCS Anesthesia Codes With the Blitz.. I believe Anesthesia video or maybe Modifiers video.. You suggested writing the HCPCS anesthesia codes in the guidelines.. but only 5 of them.. Was wondering what the reasoning for those 5 (AA, QS, QX, QI, QZ). I realized they are all administration codes (who administered anesthesia).. are they the more common codes or something? I was also informed that they have added Medicare Reimbursement questions to this years CPC and I’m taking my exam March 30th. Do you have any insight into this recent addition? ANSWER

So, just for those who need to know – if you test in 2014 for the CPC, will test in ICD – 9. October 1, 2014, ICD 10 goes into effect. Now, in January 1, 2015, ICD 10 will be on the CPC exam, ICD 9. If you are a CPC already, and in 2014 after October 1st, you will be able to sit for the proficiency exam and have a year to do that. So, best to just get it out of the way; if you’re already certified, do a Blitz, and go – that you can take that proficiency exam at home;  you can take it at work. It’s online.
