Why We Help

Coding Clarified was started by our founder, Janine, because discovering medical coding allowed her to live her ideal life and stay with her children while providing for them from home. Becoming a certified CPC and CPC-I allowed her to go from living paycheck to paycheck to a comfortable lifestyle with her children.

Janine pulled herself up all on her own, but she realized that with her knowledge, she could give others in her shoes a helping hand. Janine started Coding Clarified in 2015 with the goal of making it easier for you to obtain this certification and get into a career that can provide you and yours with financial security and the option of working from home.

How to Get Help

Most states offer help for those who want to obtain CPC certification for a better career. We’ve partnered with those states to make the process easier for you, detailing the steps you need to take in plain, easy-to-understand language meant to take the intimidation out of applying for this kind of help in your state.
