    Am I the only one balking at taking an new exam required to keep my certification? It looks like the ICD-10 proficiency assessment (another word for exam) costs as much as or more than the standard exam for certification. We have all already passed the exam for AAPC certification and having to take another expensive exam to remain certified seems to me to be over the top and just another way AAPC wants more money. Lately, every day they send emails to members trying to get more money for something else. When I was first certified in 2008, the emails sent were truly helpful and inspirational. I don’t know what happened in the last few years, but we should protest this. Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.

    I am a 2014 graduate of Centura College, South Chesterfield, Richmond, Virginia. I am NRCCS certified. It ends 12/15/15. I am in dire need of direction to continue to persue this field. I need ICD10 training as well as instruction in staying certified. Please help! Thank You.
