Thanks to CCO I passed the CPC test.

by Donna Smith on

The exam was very hard and it took me two times to pass. Thanks for all your support (videos, sample test). You guys are the best. Please keep up the good work so others can pass the AAPC exams as well.

Your support and material helped me to pass another AAPC exam on the first try; CPC and now CRC! Thank you all for your wonderful products!

Very happy with the video lectures and student support. The BHAT™ technique and the practices exams were a huge help! After a failed attempt with a previous class and struggling with another, this class structure was exactly what I needed. Passed my CRC on the first take!

Loved the CRC course! When I finished it I signed up for the CCO Club and since it gave me access to the courses I already completed I re-listened to all the lectures in the CRC course, then did the CRC Blitz and for good measure decided to do the ICD 10 Blitz to brush up on the guidelines. I highly recommend doing the CRC Blitz and the ICD 10 Blitz prior to taking the exam. Know those ICD 10 guidelines - such a huge part of CRC coding.

The online course I took through another school in no way prepared me for this exam. The only way I passed on my very first try was with the help of I couldn't have done it without their help. When my coding books were checked prior to the exam, they were impressed with all the bubbling and highlighting. All the time spent with the BHAT technique is worth it...I made an 84!!!

On 9/28 i took my cpc exam for the second time. On my first attempt I failed it by 2 points. I didn't know what to do until i came across online. Immediately after knowing i failed i decided to purchase the CPC BHAT, Blitz and CCO club. It was the best decision i have ever made. Just yesterday i found out i passed my CPC exam! i am forever grateful and so pleased with the instructors and the materials each of them had put together to make the study guide more efficient and overall comprehensible. I am still jumping for joy! Thank you all at CCO!!

I have read so many horror stories about this exam. I didn't think I would ever be prepared enough and I doubted I would pass on this first try. I even sat next to a girl who told me before we started the test that she was taking it for her second time and made a 50 on her first try. The proctor examined all my books and was greatly impressed with the BHAT™ technique and said I was one of the few that she had ever seen with notes like that. I am happy to say that with all that in my head, I passed with an 84!!! Thank you for all your help!

by Deanna on

I finally passed!!! Major thanks to Lauren and all of CCO. I could not have done it without the CPC Review Blitz and the BHAT™ system. Although I didn't completely finish viewing all the videos provided I know the BHAT™ system made up for what I didn't get a chance to study and view. I took the exam twice before purchasing CCO and I kept failing by 7 points. They say the third time's a charm right? It sure was for me and I am forever grateful for making the choice that I did. I highly recommend this program to anyone in the field or seeking a career change. I have a friend that is a phlebotomist and is looking to gear towards CCO. I know for sure it won't be a problem convincing her to try out CCO and get started on a new career path. Thanks again Lauren I literally cried when I saw that I passed. I’ll be looking to add more credentials behind my name with CCO!

Thank you. I passed my test and became a first time Grandma in the same week!

by Leslie on

I took the test twice before and failed. I took your course and I learned things that I wasn't taught from my coding classes I took in college. The course was very thorough and explanations very clear. You taught me everything I needed to know to pass the cpc exam.Thank you very much for this course!

by Melissa on

I not only passed but passed with Magna Cum Laude! On my first attempt! 😊 the BHAT system makes a world of difference not only does it help you recognize the differences between codes and makes it easy to spot quickly when your taking the exam. It really helps you get familiar with your book and the codes as your preparing it for the exam.

by Heidi Bowers on

I couldn't have passed without the Blitz and practice exams. Thank you! I will definitely come back to study for additional certifications.

by Verna on

Thank you so much. All though I have over 40 years in this industry starting out as a basic coder going to administrator,medical fraud investigator, trainer,auditor etc. in this business which I LOVE, I have been out of the game since 2007 due to certain disabilities. I have taken other courses but I have found that this course allowed me to go at my own pace has been the best. I had to stop this course a couple of times due to life but was determined to get this certification. The night before I took the test even though it was said not to study and I didn't, I just opened up Laureens how to take the test and I had forgotten about the skipping and marking tips and that was the last thing I took to bed with me and it WORKED like a charm. Especially since AAPC did not give me the proprer accommodations of a Large booklet . At one point since the font etc was so small I thought maybe I should leave and I just took a break and composed myself and wound up finishing over 30 minutes before time. I hit a groove and it was all just flowing. I did every BHAT™, Podio, course review of all chapters and found even more information to help me pass. I was in awe with the amount of information in these places and the practice test. I took the tips on how to pace my self that night with the time allotment given to me.

I'm so pleased as I currently volunteer at a senior center for Dept. of Aging and other organizations doing Medicare counseling and advocacy. I find the billing, claims questions are so easy for me to explain to the clients. Looking forward to taking the Risk Management certification next, and getting some sort of part-time remote job to keep me sharp and on top of my craft. When I started in coding/billing there were not these certifications, but now there are and I want to stay on top of this GREAT industry.

Again thank you for your time and Laureen for all of your guidance and suggestions to what courses I should take to do my business. Looking forward in a few months to tell you all just like with the CPC certification, that I have the CRC risk management certification and like the CPC I passed it the FIRST TIME!!!!!!!

Thank You,
