"I received my first certification through PMI back in 2002. At the time I was a provider representative for a state contract that was about to end. With my Certified Medical Coder (CMC) certificate and the medical office background that I had, I was offered a position with another state contract for medical services. The new position was one of only 17 in the entire State of Texas. I immediately recognized how much the added education from PMI has benefited me. Now I am the Director of Billing Compliance for an internationally known School of Medicine. Because of the choice that I made in 2002 to expand my knowledge and skill base and to continue to be a life-long-learner, taking advantage of the many education opportunities offered through PMI, I now enjoy a meaningful and financially rewarding career and not just a job."

"I have attended PMI programs since the early 80’s and continue to attend as many as possible because I always come away with important, helpful information that I can use on a daily basis. Another reason that I have remained a part of PMI is simply because I have always been impressed with the professionalism of PMI. That is just a couple of reasons that I chose to earn all three of the certifications they offer and promote the company as an upstanding organization."

"PMI understands today’s medical practice and remains dedicated to ensuring all associates supporting our medical providers have the opportunity for continued education. This is evident by the number of smaller markets they bring their courses to, because PMI understands in this day and age our practices have to cover the office. The local classes make it much more realistic in regard to travel time, expense and time out of the office. I support PMI because they support our offices… education is the key to running a practice effectively and PMI provides that."

"We have found that PMI’s CMC credential carries considerable weight in the medical community during the hiring process; both in terms of respect for the applicant’s coding skills and as a basis for salary offers."

"I appreciate the fact that PMI has created a medical office support service company that offers everyone an opportunity to interact in multiple educational events. Through this focus and determination PMI has been recognized as SUPERIOR in the national market place. I do not have to worry about wasted staff time, energy or corporate funds when interacting or attending a PMI seminar, conference, or web-cast. The quality of speakers is notable among their peers, wherein lies the true test of the PMI continued corporate success."

"My CMC helps me to better audit my doctors and educate them to strengthen their coding, this will help them even more when the ICD-10 is implemented."
