This is my take on the matter:
According to AHIMA, credentials should be ordered from general to specific. Not everyone employs this approach though, so you'll see people listing general credentials at the end of their name and then there is movement to sequence credentials "according to the order you received them." That does not match with other industries, but I see nurses using their BSN before their MSN and that's uncalled for and illogical.
So, my suggestion is to sequence you CCA first, since it is more general. The CCA covers inpatient, outpatient and physician. The CPC is specific to physician, so it should be the second credential listed.
Congrats! I hope this helps you some.
