CCS cert

I was curious. I have a CPC and a ASHIT, but most facilities want coders to have the CCS. I don't have any experience in inpatient coding, so will this certification help in getting a better job and if not, how do you get the experience for inpatient coding?

Snce you have your CPC, I would suggest trying to get an outpatient facility job. Once you are there for awhile, ask to transition over to inpatient coding.

I was able to get an inpatient facility job with just a CPC, but I work at a small hospital that was desperate. Which works out great for me. You could look for a smaller facility that is willing to take a chance.
