If you can't count it as actual experience (understandable) and put it as such on your resume, how is any employer going to consider you as a "qualified person for medical coding"? If it isn't on your resume, and it shouldn't be, it's going to go straight in the discard pile with all the other ones who don't have any experience.HI
The Answer is No
But employers will consider you as a ''Qualified person for Medical coding''
My friend did. He was a security guard 2 years ago now he's making bank at a hospital. They gave him a job right after certification unlike some "ahem" people here.If this is not considered as an actual experience, why does it say on the Practicode description equivalent to one year experience? If we can put this on our resume, how can it be known to some prospective employers, like an agency of what Practicode is and where and how we put this on our resume. I may not be wasting money but from the time to study and pass the assessment exam, may be a waste. What do you think? What do you consider to take another certification just to get in the door for coders. I have a CPC but want to get more certifications. What would be the best certification in coding when I work mostly in clinics but also want to work in the hospital setting later. Please let me know if you have any opinion. Thanks.
Did you move? I think that was the problem.Please weigh in on what I should do in order to remove the "A" from my CPC. I passed the exam in January 2015 and due to my inexperience as well as the "A", I have been unsuccessful in getting hired. This has really brought me down as I was initially thrilled to start a career in coding. I live in Victoria, Texas and the few coding jobs available require 2-3 years experience. I had no idea how difficult this process was going to be! Please help!
