En E.U. la población latina alcanza un 17% según las estadísticas desde el 2017, Puerto Rico es parte de Estados Unidos, y nuestro idioma principal es español. En nuestra Isla se trabaja con los mismos fondos federales de CMS utilizamos sus guías y reglamentaciones al igual que en E.U.. A qué me quiero referir con este detalle? Que a nosotros (los latinos) nos encanta utilizar nuestro idioma de dominio principal a la hora de aprender. Por lo que me encantaría formar parte del crecimiento de AAPC con la comunidad Latina que tanta falta nos hace. Cuantos codificadores, facturadores, auditores "bilinguals" son parte de AAPC ?

In the U.S. the Latino population reaches 17% according to statistics since 2017, Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and our main language is Spanish. On our island, we work with the same federal CMS funds, we use their guidelines and regulations just as in the U.S. You may ask, what am I referring to? That we (Latinos) love to use our primary domain language when it comes to learning. So I would love to be part of AAPC's growth with the much-needed Latino community. How many medical Coders, Billers, Auditors are part of AAPC ?

I'm afraid my Spanish isn't up to par for conversations but how does it help with coding/billing?
It has helped me particularly with billing ... occasionally I have to call Medicare HMO's in Puerto Rico and the customer service reps are always glad that I can speak to them in Spanish. Working together we have been able to resolve billing issues for out of network services. I am also my department's resource for patients who call in about their accounts. On just a side note, I work in behavioral health and my daughter-in-law is a clinical psychologist in South America. It is fun to compare the diagnoses and coding from ICD11 with her.

Wow, ICD11! Is ICD11 already becoming the standard version nowadays at many countries outside of US?

I recently obtained my CPC Certification. I am bilingual English/Spanish. Originally from Colombia currently living in the US in the State of Virgina. I have not find the opportunity to use my bilingual skills as a coder.

Hola:
Estoy de acuerdo con Sandra Torres de que aprendemmos mejor en nuestro idioma, y aunque no se puedan encontrar cursos en español, al menos en este forum podemos aclarar dudas.

Good morning from California in Los Angeles. I'm willing to learn Spanish to upgrade my knowledge in the field of Medical Coding. I recently joined the AAPC this month and I'm glad to be apart of the AAPC family. Shalom
