The following are some commonly asked questions about ChiroCode's Qualified Chiropractic Coder (QCC) certification.

Q: What's on the test?

A: There are 100 randomized questions covering the following topics:

  • Billing requirements
  • Types of Insurance including Medicare
  • Compliance
  • Terminology
  • Reimbursement and collections
  • Coding - Procedures and Diagnoses

Q: What score do I need to pass?

A: 70%

Q: Can I stop in the middle of the test and start it up again later?

A: No, it must be completed in one sitting.

Q: How long is the test?

A: There are 100 questions so it depends on how many answers you know immediately off the top of your head and how many you need to refer to the books or the ChiroCode Online Library for answers.

Q: How many times can I take the test?

A: Purchasing the exam once grants you 3 attempts. If you fail those 3 attempts, you may purchase another 3 attempts by contacting customer support. There are no limits or time constraints on any attempts. This means that you can take as long as you need to study before taking the test again.

Q: I purchased a test? Where do I go to take it?

A: Log into your ChiroCode.com account and click on 'Exams' to access the test. Click on the [Take Exam] button to begin the test. They may also be accessed through the membership page for Premium Members (click the [View Exams] button).

Q: Can I use my books?

A: You bet! You are allowed—and encouraged—to use the current ChiroCode publications and the ChiroCode Online Library during the exam.

Q: Are there any pre-qualifications?

A: There are no pre-qualifications needed to take the exam, however, having studied ChiroCode's publications prior to the exam is extremely helpful. We recommend having at least some experience in billing prior to taking the exam.

Q: Is the test timed?

A: No, it is not timed. However, be aware that sometimes when your internet browser is open a long time, it will 'time out' if there is no activity. To avoid having this happen to you when you are taking a little time looking up an answer, use your mouse to click on an empty place (where there isn't an answer button to click on) every so often just to let the browser know you are still working on that page.

Note that if for some reason you do get logged out while taking the test, you won't be scored on what you had done before it timed out. You will still have the same number of 'attempts' as you did before it timed out.

2023 Evaluation & Management Updates Free Webinar
October 24th, 2022 - Aimee Wilcox
Congratulations on a successful 2021 implementation of the Evaluation and Management (E/M) changes! That was a big change, but now an even bigger change is headed your way for inpatient and all other E/M categories. How great is it that almost all of the E/M categories will now be scored based on medical decision making (MDM) or total provider time? Standardized scoring and one set of E/M guidelines has the potential of bringing about a change or improvement of provider fatigue due to over regulation and documentation burden.

Yes, You Have What It Takes To Lead Your Practice And Your Profession
September 20th, 2022 - Kem Tolliver
If you’ve been in any healthcare role for more than two years, you’ve seen quite a bit of change. And guess what, it’s not over. We are living and working in uncertain times. This climate requires each of us to step outside of our comfort zones to lead exactly where we stand. It’s not required of one to have a “title” to lead. What is required, however, is a willingness to trust your instincts, look for answers and rely on your team.
