Certified Professional Coder-Payer (CPC-P®)


More private and public payers (health plans) are recognizing the value of employing certified coders to process and analyze medical claims for payment. The CPC-P® credential meets the growing demand for certified coders in a payer environment. Additionally, those with the CPC-P® earn 66% more than non-credentialed coders.

The CPC-P® demonstrates a coder’s aptitude, proficiency and knowledge of coding guidelines and reimbursement methodologies for all types of services from the payer's perspective. Contributing developers include Dr. Marc Lieb, M.D., J.D., Susan Goldsmith, CPC, as well as a number of other well-known CPC-Ps in the payer community. Claims reviewers, utilization management, auditors, benefits administrators, billing service, provider relations, contracting and customer service staff can each benefit their practice with the CPC-P® credential.

The CPC-P® certification validates the knowledge and skills to adjudicate provider claims effectively. This credential demonstrates the basic knowledge of coding-related payer functions with emphasis on how those functions differ from provider coding.

NOTE: Due to significant recurring costs, as of May 8th, new exam registrants will no longer be able to test for this credential.
