Medical Billing and Coding: The Road to Success – Obtaining Your AAPC Certification
What’s your coding story? Many AAPC members have taken different paths in their careers and Holly Cassano, CPC recently wrote about her path to certification on the Medical Billing and Coding blog.
“I urge anyone interested in a career in coding to sit for their CPC, which is considered the gold standard for certification. The reason I say this is that in order for a person to be recognized as a coding professional in healthcare, a certification is a must. If you do not obtain a credential in this industry, you will never achieve the recognition or salary that a credentialed coder attains nor will you have access to all the benefits via the AAPC that members and certified coders receive,” she wrote.
