Entry Level Postion Problems

  1. Default Icd-9
    Medical Coding Books
    I finished my medical coding education in November and was certified last month. However, neither my education, nor the CPC test had a single thing about ICD-9. Obviously it was all ICD-10. Almost every single job requirement I have come across states "experience in ICD-9 coding." I have run across very few that even mention ICD-10.

    Why? Are HR departments behind the times and don't know they have to update their ads? Should I go back and spend another bucket of money and learn ICD-9 as well?

  2. Default
    I am having a hard time as well. I have been certified for a year and still no job. Most want experience even entry level positions. Very frustrating.

    That or Risk Adjustment positions since that is done on a retrospective basis. possibly chasing down old accounts?
