    Default Letter to remove "A"

    AAPC: Back to School

    Does anyone have Format for the letter given by their employer, certifying work experience to remove "A" from CPC "A".I didn't submit that at first because, i didn't expect to pass.

    I asked my previous employer to write one for me and he wants to know what he should write.

    I will appreciate any help.

    Smile Letter to remove "A"

    My supervisor just typed a letter stating that I had fulfilled 1 year of coding and told what code sets I used, that I was in a clinic and particularly coded for the Ortho docs. It was very simple and they accepted it with no problems.

    Of course the above would be typed out on letterhead of the company/practice for which you worked.

    Hope that helps.
