Specialty Medical Coding Certification

Physician practices, health systems, and surgery centers depend on certified medical specialty coders to maintain a healthy revenue cycle, and nothing gives them more confidence in a specialty coder than passing the specialty certification exam. Specialty coding certifications represent mastery of the skills they rely on — which is why employers pay certified specialty coders approximately 11% more than unspecialized coders.

Validate your specialty coding expertise and raise your earning potential from an average of $58,055 per year to $64,442 per year, according to AAPC's 2022 Medical Coding and Billing Salary Survey Report.

AAPC specialty certifications are designed for experienced or specialty-trained medical coders and do not require CPC® certification.

Bonus: Maintaining an AAPC specialty credential just got easier. Specialty CEUs now count towards both your specialty credential and your CPC®, COC®, or CPC-P®. This cuts down on cost and your time to complete CEUs!
