Hello! Back in May, you replied to me thread about being "unhappy" and suggested becoming a CPC. I have tired to look for these jobs to no avail. Would you have some company names to get me started? I am an LPN and have almost 4 years experience. Thanks!
Some want it while others dont (The requirements will be listed) Since you are already in healthcare you can ask your employer about their billing/coding department and look into doing an internship before or after your shift starts...This will count as time (experience) As a matter of fact, some places have paid internships..
Also once you pass your CPC..you will have an A behind your credential
(CPC-A), meaning apprentice. This A can be removed if you present AAPC with 2 letter on company letter head, basically stating thatvyou are familiar with codes etc..The internship can count towards that or as long as youbhave 2 letters on company letterhead it will be removed, to only show CPC, after your name.
I was already working with UHC and just transferred into a role that required a coding certification or nursing license.
