I currently work at an outpatient facility and am familiar with office/outpatient coding. I am looking to possibly make a change and I want to be as prepared as possible. What is the best type of training or best credential to have if working at a Critical Access Hospital? I was thinking CIC but I wanted to check before I signed up for anything.

Any suggestions from current CAH coders would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I know this is a really old post but wanted to add that ArchProCoding has a CAH Billing and Coding Specialist credential and also a RHC/FQHC Coding Credential. I have the CAH credential and I felt that the course was super helpful :)
