About AAPC

AAPC was founded in 1988 to provide professional certification to physician-based medical coders and to elevate the standards of medical coding. Since then, AAPC has grown to more than 200,000 members worldwide and now offers 28 certifications encompassing the entire business side of healthcare.

We now offer training, certification, software, tools, and services for professionals working in medical coding, billing, auditing, clinical documentation, compliance, and physician practice management. We support providers and payers, hospitals and health systems, and help both individuals and organizations submit cleaner claims for fewer denials, faster reimbursement, and more efficiently run practices and facilities.

Whether you're new to the industry, wanting to advance your career, or are responsible for your organization's success, AAPC has a solution for you.
