Libman Education's ICD-10-Based CCS Exam Prep Students Report Exam Success

Bedford, MA - Mary Beth York, instructor for Libman Education's CCS Exam Prep program, has announced the preliminary results reported by students in her January-April CCS Exam Prep program. The January-April session was the first CCS Exam Prep offered by Libman Education since implementation of ICD-10 in 2015.

According to York, "I am happy to report that seven of my January students have taken the CCS Exam and seven have passed! While these first seven may have been particularly highly motivated and therefore more likely to succeed, we are extremely proud of our students and the hard work and dedication they displayed in order to pass this difficult coding exam."

Libman Education's highly-acclaimed CCS Exam Prep program prepares coding professionals to sit for AHIMA's Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) credential exam. The CCS credential is considered a "mastery" level certification for those with a thorough understanding of hospital inpatient and outpatient coding with hands-on hospital coding experience. The exam is known to be difficult: AHIMA reports an average 50% pass rate for those attempting the exam for the first time.

York cautioned that, "The CCS Exam Prep course is not magic - students have to do a great deal of preparation and study in order to be successful on the CCS coding credential exam. We are gratified that our newly revised CCS Exam Prep, fully updated for ICD-10, continues to be an effective method of preparation for the exam."

The small group CCS Exam Prep, usually limited to fewer than 15 students, combines online lectures, presentations and practice exams with weekly live instructor-led virtual class sessions to provide a thorough review of the materials covered on the ICD-10-based CCS exam. York, a nationally renowned CCS exam instructor, provides individual mentoring and coaching with proven test-taking strategies that have helped hundreds to achieve CCS success. The CCS Exam Prep is designed to increase your likelihood of earning this nationally recognized and highly valued coding credential.

Libman Education has announced that the next session of the CCS Exam Prep will be September - December 2016 (dates to be determined). The application period will open July 15, 2016.
