The American Association of
Clinical Coders & Auditors (AACCA) has been around since 2003. We are
the most recognizable name in the U.S. healthcare coding industry specializing
in testing and certification of Registered Nurses, physicians and other
clinical professionals in compliant coding and chart reviews.
AACCA is the
National Standard for RN-Coder & RN-Auditor certification in the United States.
The AACCA is proud to be the only organization to offer a self-study RN-Coder Certification Course (RN-Coder
STAT program), and the RN-Auditor Institute Certification Course.
Acquiring national RN-Coder and/or RN-Auditor certification places
you above others competing for employment in the healthcare coding field
because your certification is through the AACCA, the most established
and respected clinical coding testing and certification organization in
the U.S. In the nursing profession it is well known that
if you are not nationally certified with the American Association of Clinical
Coders & Auditors then you are not considered a certified coder.
Several years ago Medicare and the Office of the Inspector General published various
compliance programs in the Federal Register.
ALL of them indicate that ALL coders should be certified and should have continuing education to keep up with changes.
More critically, coding certification is the
expectation in the industry.
The same is true for chart review and auditing certification. Therefore,
we strongly urge you to keep this in mind as you look to advance your
career in the health care coding field. Having AACCA certification simply
puts you ahead of the game now, and in the long term. Why take a certification for high school
On a more practical level our RN-Coder certification testing provides you
with the opportunity to fine tune your knowledge and acquire new skills and
techniques with minimal out of pocket cost at $349.00. You take
the test online in 4 sections (50 multiple-choice questions each) and it is
scored immediately! So no travel, no
expensive airfare/hotel fees, no showing up with ‘they’ say, AND you don’t have
to have 6-10 weeks for the results!
The RN-Coder STAT program, available from the
RN-Coder Institute www.RN-Coder.com is only $999. This, as opposed to going to a more
traditional coding training school or course which can cost thousands of
dollars, extra expense such as gas, and time that you
don't have. AND you receive NO CREDIT for your nursing training and
experience! If you are interested in becoming a nationally
certified RN-Coder or nationally certified RN-Auditor and being entered
into our national database, please call 909-579-0507 to purchase the RN-Coder
STAT certification course.
