Five reasons to become a CPC Certified

Five reasons to become a CPC Certified

Reason #1:  Better Pay

During these harsh times, every penny counts.  A recent 2008 AAPC Salary Survey revealed that Certified Professional Coders (CPC®) earn an average of 15% more than their non-certified counterparts.  The average annual wage for a credentialed coder is $43,100, compared to $36,500 for a non-credentialed coder.  Just imagine all the things that you could do with the extra money. 


Reason #2:  Job Security

50% of survey respondents said that Certification was required for employment at their current positions (up from 42% in 2007).  Secure your future by taking action today.  Acquiring your CPC certification can not only bring you added income and credibility, it will also give you peace of mind.

Reason #3:  Employment Opportunities

41% of coding positions are closed to non-certified coders. A recent search of monster.com revealed 310 available medical coding positions out of which 128 required certification.  Without a CPC® certification, you could be limiting your employment opportunities.

Reason #4:  Stay Competitive

Did you know that out of all coders in your region, over 80% of them are CPC® Certified?  Make sure you’re not missing the boat.  Join the growing number of coding professionals who are securing their success and enjoying the benefits a CPC® certification has to offer.
