1.  CHC Study Group...Bill Wong...What Say You?

Posted 16 days ago
You can't go WRONG with Bill Wong!  Sorry...could not resist.

Bill is a good friend of mine and I had the wonderful opportunity to be one of his co speakers at the CI as he led the "Three Amigos" session with the incomparable Walter Johnson.  Sometimes its good to be the third person when you have two presenters like this leading the way!

It seems that there are tons of "I want to join a study group" messages that go by the wayside which I think maybe we can take a different approach, especially those who want to take advantage of Bill's leadership.

If there is enough interest...gauged by onlist responses.  I will post a survey so people can enter their email addresses which will make managing the group MUCH easier as well as much more effective using email.

So let's hear it.

What say you?

Great idea Frank.  I was just left a voicemail by someone wanting to find a study group after receiving her test results from the CI.  Please share with all if you have a group available.

Sounds like a great idea and another plug for Bill Wong....the one thing I learned in the study group, if there had never been another word uttered, was "Stop the bleeding first!"  Bill said that multiple times to us in our study group and the way the test was set up, there was usually two very obvious wrong answers, and then you had to choose between the other two left.  If you "stopped the bleeding first" you would most generally get the correct answer.

 

That is how I passed my test on 3/29/2017.  I don't think I would have done as well without that statement in my head.  I would say 95% of the test was situational and you had to think like you were in a perfect setup with CEO, BOD and others on board.

I encourage anyone looking for a group to take advantage of this offer!!

 

Bill is a GREAT study group facilitator and a wonderful supporter of achieving certification. I was part of one of his groups and although I have not taken the test yet, I will be using the material from that group to prepare.

I have to take the test by June.  I took the test at the academy but did not pass.  I am really nervous about taking it again.  I lead a study group and we came up with a lot of great Q&As.  Bill was a huge supporter and provided a ton of resources - Bill is wonderful!!!

I would like to join another group.  Please could me in.  jmurray6@regionalhealth.org

On the HCCA website, going through the pages to "Take the Exam", you can take a 25 question practice test.

You may want to become familiar with how the computerized exam functions, if you plan on taking it at an AMP assessment center. To help you do that, here are two ...

I studied in one of Bill's groups last year thinking I could go to one on the Basic Academies at the end of the year but was not able to go, (I learned a lot in the study group!) I registered for August Basic Academy (New York) and will be sitting down for the CHC exam the last day of the Academy (August 10), so count me in for this study group! Anyone going to this Academy as well?

Hello All,

Thank you for your kind words Frank.  It was a pleasure speaking with you and TIGER as well at CI.

I would be happy to lead another CHC study group.  I am also leading a CCS (Medical Coding) study group and will be preparing for the CHRC myself with a few others.  So, I'll be busy to say the least.   So, if anyone is willing to Co-lead, that would be great!  Debbie & Tricia, did I hear you volunteer!?!  = )

I'll get in touch with Frank and determine when a good start date would be.  In the meantime, do not hesitate to email me if you are taking the exam within next few weeks (william.wong@providence.org) and need immediate assistance.

I took the CHC exam after attending the Basic Compliance Academy in January and, unfortunately, did not pass (missed by 6 points).  I wasn't too surprised as I have only been in Healthcare Compliance for 2 years and felt the test was extremely difficult (as did many of the attendees at the academy).  I am scheduled to take the computerized exam this Thursday.  I have been reviewing for quite some time, and still do not feel prepared (there is so much information when researching on the web).  Any help, at all, would be extremely helpful (test taking strategies, etc.)  Unfortunately, I found this site too late to join a study group, but have gained a "wealth" of knowledge just reading through many of the posts related to the CHC exam and thank you all for very useful information.
