Where does one begin to answer all of your questions.... I am a strong believer in education and continuing education. There is no one that knows everything there is about coding, which is why it is such a ongoing educational adventure. Only you can decide if you are ready to continue obtaining certifications. I have 20 years in coding & billing and became certified in 2001, and you can see what I have done from there by my credentials.
In regards to obtaining credentials from others such as AHIMA that is again your decision. I have managed to have a very successful career with my credentials from the AAPC.
Sometimes it helps to set a goal or career path for yourself to decide which direction you should go next. There are so many directions you can take with your credential, but again only you can decide what works for you. Good Luck.
