AAPC was founded in 1988 to provide
education and professional certification to physician-based
medical coders and to elevate the standards of medical
coding by providing student training, certification,
ongoing education, networking, and job opportunities.
Since then, AAPC has expanded beyond coding to include
training and credentials in documentation and coding
audits, regulatory compliance, and physician practice
management. Currently, AAPC has a membership base of
126,000 worldwide, of which more than 95,000 are certified.
AAPC credentialed coders have proven mastery
of all code sets, evaluation and management principles,
and documentation guidelines. CPC’s and other AAPC credentialed
coders represent the best in outpatient coding.
AAPC certifications encompass the entire
business side of provider care, with physician coding
the hospital outpatient facility (CPC-H®),
payer perspective coding (CPC-P®),
interventional radiology cardiovascular coding (CIRCC™),
medical auditing (CPMA™),
medical compliance (CPCO™),
and practice management (CPPM™).
All certifications demonstrate a strong hands on, working
knowledge to support cleaner claim submission, faster
reimbursement, fewer denials, and better run practices.
coding credentials are currently offered in 20 different
fields of expertise. AAPC offers continuing education
for all our credentials through local chapters, workshops,
webinars, a monthly newsmagazine (Healthcare Business
Monthly), other publications, and conferences.
AAPC educational offerings cover both pre-certification
needs and post-certification CEU requirements. See AAPC’s
page for more information about educational services.

Members who have been part of PAHCOM since 1988 have grown their practices and increased their personal and practice profitability by reinforcing their network of knowledgeable resources and quickly solving new problems. The PAHCOM Annual Conference is viewed by our long time members as a “must attend” update on the latest and most reliable information on regulations and technology in the health care industry.
