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.
