Hello:)

I have been a CPC now for one year and also have a coding job for a physician group as an outpatient coder. I am looking into getting another certification and need help on whether I should persue the CPC-H or the
CCS-P. I am really just looking to supplement my income and maybe do some coding at home and not leave my current position. I have heard that some places offer certifications that are not really worth anything just to get your money. I am trying to avoid getting a certification that is not reckognized by employers and really would like some honesty on which certification you believe most employes are looking for. Thank you so much for your help.

If you are looking for remote coding I would suggest the CCS, not the CCS-P. If you are a CPC you already have the outpatient side covered. CCS is the credential that will get you the inpatient coding, there seems to be a lot more inpatient remote jobs than outpatient.

Just my opinion,

Laura, CPC
