    Default Which one to set for CEMC or NAMAS

    AAPC: Back to School
    Which cert is better is better to set for? Or are they about the same?

    I have both. Go for the AAPC credential first, NAMAS isn't as recognized yet

    Default Namas

    I just received my NAMAS certification for Certified Professional Medical Auditor. I was told when I first signed up for the class that this certification CPMA is recognized by both AHIMA and AAPC. I guess it depends which area of the US you work in...

    Thank you. For the CEMC where can you find the teaching doc. guidelines? Also if you where auding a chart and you can not read it. Would you not give any points or would you ask the doctor to rewrite that part?

    Thanks again

    Hi Coder21
    I got my CEMC last year, I found the 95 and 97 CMS guidelines , an audit that will cover 95 and 97 elements and I use the Ingenix book
    Understanding E/M coding very helpful.
    Good Luck
