Specialty Medical Coding Certification
Which certification is right for you?
Designed for experienced coders, the AAPC's specialty credentials enable coders to
demonstrate superior levels of expertise in their respective specialty disciplines. These specialty credentials are stand-alone certifications with no requirement to hold the CPC®
credential. They allow coders to validate their knowledge in a specialty with unique coding, reimbursement and compliance challenges.
Specialty exams aptly measure preparedness
for “real-world” coding by being operative/patient-note based. In addition to questions regarding the correct application of ICD-9-CM, CPT®, HCPCS Level II and modifier
coding assignments, examinees will also be tested on specialty-specific coding and regulations.
