I can believe they really don't know.
Reading some of the job postings for coders I crack up. I think my favorite is when they require you have a CPC-P, which they define as certified profesional coder for physicians. Which we all know is not what the P stands for in that credential.
I had a coding consulting company send me information that they only higher CPCs (certified physician coders). This was a company trying to get coding business from us. I lost a lot of faith in their abilities based on the fact they didn't even know what the credential actually means.
So I can certainly believe employers really don't know.
