    Hi jyvincent,

    AHIMA requires that you complete an approved RHIT program before they allow you to take the test (at least this is how it was the last time I checked). If you go to the AHIMA website you can find out which colleges in your area or online offer an approved program. Good luck!

    Default RHIT/RHIA vs. CPC

    I live in Northeast Michigan and I am running into the same problem. I am also a CPC and was wondering if I need to take the classes for RHIT/RHIA too. I am looking to do remote coding and am seeing more and more RHIT/RHIA and less of CPC.
