What do I do now??

  1. Question What do I do now??
    Medical Coding Books
    I've been at my current job for the last 5 years. I have my CPC. I'm thinking about furthering my education, but I don't know where to start. I like the fact that I don't deal with too many customers besides my business office, nurses and on occasion physicians. I like dealing with paperwork more than people If you have any suggestons, please let me know. cpigeon@altru.org

    I work in a clinic with two other coders and approximately 15 providers. I mainly code for Family Practice (which I love), but I also code for Infectious Disease, Urgent Car, and Peds.

    Consider taking the CEMC and go towards auditing; which you would still have minimal to no pt contact and still do what you love.

    Hope this helps
