  1. I have a couple of questions: 1) What is credentialing for? 2) Does a PA have to be credentialed if claims are being submitted under the name of supervisory physician? 3) How does one get credentialed with BCBS in the state of Virginia??? Is it a simple process or complex one???
  2. Here's the deal: I am no longer with my employer and came to find out the policy that was chosen for me was a claims-made, shared policy. I am currently looking for tail-coverage as I have not come across any company offers occurrence with retro (unless I have been looking in the wrong direction). Does anyone know what companies offer tail coverage ONLY OR occurrence with retrospective coverage??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. FYI: Current policy is still active. Thanks!!!
  3. Oh and one more thing, don't worry about the time ... Take the test when you are THOROUGHLY prepared ... If it takes a few months or even a year, so be it but DO NOT leave any stone unturned in your preparation. If you would like a list of the books I used feel free to message me and I will be happy to email you the list. Don't worry, you are never alone and you will pass!!!!
  4. My advice ... Do not waste your money on the 5 day CME courses,instead sign up for UMDNJ PANCE review course which will allow you to study the material anytime and anywhere. Also, it is crucial that you do a MINIMUM of 2000 questions before you even sit to take the exam again. The key to passing the exam is doing questions from various sources with varying difficulty levels. Start by studying the big 5 (one at a time) then move onto doing questions from each ... Begin incorporating the small sections such as endocrinology, dermatology, psychiatry etc. The more questions you'll do, the bett
  5. Hello, I came across your post and was wondering if you are still in search of a PA.
  6. Hey, if you need some I'll be more than happy to send some your way - send me a private message w/your email address.
  7. Alrighty peoples, here is MY question: Those of you who have yet to pass the PANCE --- how different did you find the 360 question exam from the now current 300 question exam??? I know there is less room for error given that a block has been taken out, but are the questions all that difficult from when it was 360 questions???
  8. Congrats, Ladytateybug --- thats awesome news!!!! Your hard work paid off!
  9. I understand your situation -- I will be taking the exam for the 4th time. What boosted my score on the 3rd try but not enough to push me over the hump, were questions. That's the tactic I'll be taking. I attended a course in Chicago, got back from it last week - currently going thru the binder and will hit questions hard for the next 2 weeks straight. If I were you I'd look into getting DataChem & signing up at PAeasy.com for their 1200 question bank. The more questions you do, the better. I hope this helps, hang in there --- you have all the book knowledge now just beat those quest
  10. Same here -- I took the 3 day course and was told to study for a couple of weeks before taking the test.
  11. Has anyone taken the PANCE recently, as in after June 1st? Was curious to know how it is and what should the main focus be on. Stumbled upon PAeasy.com so I was wondering what the census was. Thinking of subscribing for 1month.
  12. I just took the 3 day "Chicago course" -- it was excellent!!! Before you go there they send you a 400Q pretest which you submit the first day. Before each lecture, rapid review questions are done where you have 30 seconds to answer (approx 10-15/lecture) which are reviewed at the end of the day. During the conference you are also given a 300Q post-test which is to be submitted the morning of the last day. You get to keep the pre/post test but are not allowed access to the rapid fire questions ... so out of 1000 questions, you keep 700 to review. It was intense, fast paced and exhausting b
  13. The VanRhee book is a really good book compared to the others out there, make sure it's the latest edition. I am also using USMLE Step 2 CK (deja review) as a quick reference. I did NOT like the AAPA book at all, felt it was a waste of money. Hope this helps!
