Why Get Certified?

The simple answer is that to remain as competitive as possible today, you must be certified. The bar has been set in view of freezing of ICD-10 compliance dates by CMS, and healthcare organizations, vendors, government agencies, and even payers are now looking to ensure that they are hiring or working with the most skilled and knowledgeable individuals on their ICD-10 implementation teams. Professional certifications from ICA offer them an industry-standard benchmark - one that has the backing and credibility of highly experienced industry professionals.

Every profession requires specialized skills. Not every employer knows that you have those skills. In short, certification is an investment in your career and future.
