CIC Certified Inpatient Coder Medical Coding Workshop-1
As my experience in medical coding and the knowledge acquired from the AAPC exam and education or monthly CEU's. The workshop is the only standalone inpatient coding certification (Certified Inpatient Coder (CIC) ) in the healthcare industry.
The reason to complete this certification as an Inpatient Coder is that the exam tests the competencies required to perform the job of an inpatient coder. I have earned the CIC credential and have proven expertise in inpatient documentation review, abstract inpatient acute care encounters, coding proficiency with ICD-10 CM, ICD-10 PCS, and inpatient payment methodologies.
