Training for Certified Professional Coder Examination   (Training for CPC Examination)

As we all know Medical Coding is one of the fastest growing fields in the India. As industries are growing day by day according to industry data, the offshore healthcare services industry is growing at a rate of 25-35 % per year. Medical coding is the fastest-growing outsourced business process in India, so trained and certified coders are required but currently very few of healthcare employers are adequately staffed with trained medical coders. The most common reason for this is the lack of qualified candidates. In United States currently only 49% employers have adequate staff of medical coders due to the lack of trained candidates.

A qualified medical coder can be expected to earn a very handsome package in United States as well. You too can be a part of a fast growing industry with potential for growth.

The Medical coding certification i.e. CPC is conducted by AAPC. It is an importance exam because a certified medical coder is paid more in comparison to the non-certified medical coder. In fact, AAPC estimated that coders who hold its Certified Professional Coder (CPC) credential earn 20 percent more than their non-certified counterparts.

In addition to its entry-level CPC credential, AAPC offers a variety of certifications that demonstrate expertise in certain settings and branches of medicine.

One of the most popular certification in medical coding is CPC (Certified Professional Coder).

The first question arises in mind that what is CPC certification?

The answer is CPC is the first step against non-compliance and down or up-coding for any medical provider.

AAPC’s Certified Professional Coder (CPC) credential is the benchmark for medical coding in physician office settings and held by nearly 99,000 coding professionals. CPC’s are critical to compliant and profitable medical practices and typically earn 20% more than non-certified coders. The CPC increases your chances of being hired and retained in a competitive job market.

A Certified Professional Coder has proven by rigorous examination and experience that they know how to read a medical chart and assign the correct diagnosis (ICD), procedure (CPT), and supply (HCPCS Level II) code for a wide variety of clinical cases and services.

Medical Certification Overview:

More than 98,000 health care professionals around the US hold AAPC certifications in physician offices, clinics, outpatient facilities and hospitals. These credentials represent the benchmark in medical coding, billing, auditing, compliance, and practice management, and are nationally recognized by employers, medical societies and government organizations.

Once trained and prepared, validate your expertise and schedule your credentialing exam.
