Hello,


Does anyone know if we are able to work for international companies - such as ones in Canada with our CPC and CCS?   I know ICD 10 is "international", but not all countries use exactly the same classification systems.  Just curious.

This is a great question. I'm looking forward to the answer. :)

Glenda or Linda?  Do either of you know if we could work in Canada?  Or live in a foreign country and work remotely for a US company?  Exploring options.


thank you!

The above link will take you to an article on AHIMA's website comparing Canada, Australia, the UK and the US in the realm of medical coding.  I wasn't sure of the date and some of the sources the author used were over 10 years old but it gives some idea of the differences.

I hope this is helpful in some way.
