Props to AAPC CSRs for Helpful Tips
We appreciate feedback from members about their experiences with AAPC’s customer service; we especially love receiving props! Here’s what a couple of members said recently about their customer service experiences regarding member benefits and website navigation.
Pamela L. said, “As always, great customer service! Lisa was very patient with me, explaining how to reach a certain page to see where my exams were listed. I am unfamiliar with where things are located on the site; she was great to deal with.”
We have a robust website because we offer so many different educational tracks, products, services, and industry information for a wide variety of fields in the business of healthcare. For quicker website navigation, in general, hover over the top menu options and select more specific pages from there. For details on your upcoming or past exams, you can view your dashboard by logging in and clicking My AAPC from the top right, then using the Exams box on the left side.
According to an anonymous member, “Tracie is a godsend in resolving the issue of certification verification. My employment wanted a certification number. … Tracie sent me an email to give to my employer on how to verify my certifications. Kudos to Tracie; keep up the good work.”
A lot of employers require proof of certification. To streamline this process, you can now find a Credential Verification section right on our home page (www.aapc.com), about two-thirds of the way down. Simply enter your last name and either your member ID or email address to view your credential(s)/status and the associated earned and renewal dates.
