Intensive CCS Exam Prep Program Slated for September 2012

Program prepares coders to earn CCS before coding credential changes
Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – August 22, 2012 – Those seeking to become a Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) can apply now to take Barry Libman Inc.’s thorough CCS exam preparation program starting September 8, 2012. Students who complete this 13-week program will be able to take the CCS exam as early as December 12, 2012, prior to the coding credential changes planned to occur six months prior to final ICD-10 implementation (date to be determined).

This increasingly popular program to prepare students to take and pass the AHIMA Certified Coding Specialist certification exam – can be taken in two formats: virtual and hybrid (virtual/onsite).

“Our intensive CCS exam prep program is highly recommended for two reasons,” said course instructor Mary Beth York, CCS, CCS-P. “First, we strive to equip our students as thoroughly as possible. The result has been that students who take the program and complete the required work are more than likely to pass the CCS exam.

“Second,” she added, “CCHIM has announced that the CCS exam will launch as an ICD-10 compliant exam six months prior to the final ICD-10 implementation date – meaning that medical coders have a limited time to pass the ICD-9-based exam. Our CCS course is structured to maximize proficiency in a minimal amount of time, and thus help students pass the exam in a timely manner.”

The virtual version of the CCS exam preparation program can be taken anywhere with internet access. In addition, the hybrid version enables students near Concord, Massachusetts to take the program in a dual onsite/virtual format.

The slated coding exam changes have resulted in an overwhelming demand for the program. Since class size is strictly limited, those interested in taking the program are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The ongoing program is slated to be offer again starting in January 2013.
