First of all are you Canadian? Its not like America that will give away jobs that Americans can do. Its a completely different healthcare system out there and coding isn't used for reimbursement purposes. Your coding certification is likely useless since its geared toward coding for the American healthcare system. Or others like the United Arab Emirates which is still on ICD-9.

I have family in Canada and am looking to emigrating. I'm currently certified as CPC-A for ICD10-CM but I'm trying to look for a training program and go for certification in ICD10-CA. Where can I start looking into this? Anyone that can suggest a training program or agency who specialize in such cases?


Thanks :)
