A certificate of attendance or completion listing the total CMEs possible for the offering is necessary to show participation. Physicians are advised to claim only the actual hours that they were present during the education. We ask that AAPC-certified members abide by this request also. One hour of instruction is worth one CEU. (Source: https://www.aapc.com/ medical-coding-education/help/#tab-3. Accessed on Jan. 21, 2021)
