They want my CPC license number

  1. Default They want my CPC license number

    I have a prospective employer asking for my CPC license number and I don't know what to give them. I can give them my Member ID number but that doesn't necessarily prove I'm certified. Any ideas as to what I should give them or how the AAPC might furnish me with a "license number" ?

    Hello! Your member nember is what they are probably asking for. If you go to the AAPC website http://www.aapc.com/certification/cr...ification.aspx you can verify a coder's credentials using their member number and last name, which is probably what the company is planning to do.

    There is no "license number." You are not licensed, you are certified. They can verify your certification using your member number, if thats what they are trying to do. Just ask them if you are concerned, this is standard practice and its why AAPC has that option.
