Connecticut Chapter

Why we started our chapter?

Those of us involved in coding and the healthcare field in general, realized that the responsibilites placed on coders and the emphasis given to CPT-4 and ICD-9 coding has increased tremendously. The accuracy of coding and the comprehension of its impact and importance for compliance and reimbursement have become essential to the physician practices in our area. We wanted to provide knowledge, networking and a certification process to the coding professionals in Connecticut, and to emphasize and promote professionalism and intergrity for our members.

This is our eighth year with the AAPC and our membership has grown consistently over that time period. We have established a Board of Directors to provide guidance to our officers, an outreach program for making our presence known in the community and to create a resource of colleagues and mentors within our geographic area.
