Newbie Says Hello
I'm Allie and new to the group as well as new to medical
billing/coding but not new to the healthcare field (20yrs+). I'm a
MA, and have also managed two Pain Management practices and throughly
enjoy this field. Hopefully my experience as an MA and Practice
Manager will be of help to me as I move into a new phase of my
career. My certification exam for CBCS is scheduled for 8/30/04.
I would really appreciate some feedback.
1. Has anyone ever heard of the certification offered by the National
Healthcareers - the Certified Coding & Billing Specialist? Is it any
2 I don't have experience. How can I overcome this requirement and
get employers to afford me an opportunity?
3. Is anyone a member of AHIMA? If, so what's your opinion on it.
Look forward to hearing from you all.
