CPC Versus CPC-H Question

October 31, 2013 @ 11:18 AM Reply  |  Email Friend   |  |Print  |  Top

Hi everyone, I hope you can help me. I am taking insurance coding classes to become a coder. I will take the class first, then get certified, and then apply for jobs.

So my question is do I have to take both tests CPC and CPC-H?
Because I have no idea where I will be lucky enough to land a job, medical office or hospital....
Am I right to think that with CPC you cannot work in the hospital? (or is CPC good enough for med. office and hospital)

Also should I get certified before applying for jobs or not necessarily?
Would employers consider me without any experience and without certification?

Thank you very much for your help.
