My CCS Exam Prep classes are intensive, fifteen-week, total immersions into the guidelines and conventions of the ICD-10-CM, ICS-10-PCS, and CPT code sets. During that time the intricacies of coding are a constant presence in the student’s life.
And it works: my students usually pass the exams (many achieving truly excellent scores) but more importantly they become great coders, confident in their skills, committed to professional excellence, and able to handle just about any case that falls into their queue.
I love to hear from former students! After our time together during the exam prep I miss them. I heard recently from one such student, “By going through the class and passing the CCS, my confidence and quality in my coding has improved tremendously!”
This is a great comment. While the CCS is the immediate goal, and something to definitely be proud of, it is the knowledge that the CCS connotes that is most important. You cannot achieve the CCS without in-depth study and preparation. The process of preparing for the CCS will leave you a better coder than when you began it.
