Tuition for (CPC)Medical Coding bootcamp course

My name is Tonisha. I am a medical biller with 7 years of experience. My job recently made the decision to give my whole department pink slips. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic my employer outsource our work vendors outside of the U.S. It was very unexpected, and I did not plan for this.

The reason for this Go Fund me is because I would like to go back to school and get my Medical Coding Certificate and (CPC)Certified Professional Coding credentials. I cannot afford to pay for the course that will prepare me for the CPC exam. I need urgent financial help to attend this course.

Now that I will be unemployed, I can use this time to develop a skill set that can take me to the next level in my career. When I was working a full time job I couldn’t afford the course and now that I am unemployed due to the pandemic, I am only living off 60% of my former salary of 35,000 before taxes in the State of NJ, where to live in a 1 bedroom will cost $1200.00 outside of utilities and other living expenses. So, living from paycheck to paycheck makes it impossible to afford an education.

My goal is to be a Certified Professional Coder (CPC) by the end of this year 2020 or the beginning of the year 2021.  I plan to fly out to Dallas TX on December 9-11th to take a three-day intense bootcamp Medical coding exam prep course with The Medical Coding Academy.  Then i will schedule my (CPC) exam with the AAPC and pass it. After that the next boot camp is in the month of May. Thats too late. I have a short window of time because unemployment is not forever. So, I would like to reach my financial goal by December 1st 2020. I do not plan to be on unemployment very long and they do not pay for such a course. When I go back in the workforce, I want to have my medical coding credentials so that I can land my dream Job as a certified medical coder and make a higher salary. By getting these credentials it can literally make an $8 or more increase in my salary.

It’s hard to ask for money especially because I’m so hardworking and independent. These times are difficult. I am humbling myself to ask the community to believe in me as I believe God to provide for my education. COVID -19 has been a shock for us all. I was working to be promoted and I just never though in a million years that my whole company would fold and do a mass layoff. I am grateful. Every dollar helps. Whatever your heart moves you to give, even if it is $5.00 is appreciated whole heartily. Thank you in advance for your gift and believing in me to pursue my educational goals. Thank you sooo much!

These expenses will cover the Books and Tuition, flight, hotel, rental car accommodations, CPC Exams fees through the AAPC. The boot camp is held at a hotel in Dallas TX.

P.S. in the future I would like to also take the 1-day boot camp exam prep course to get my (CPPM) Certified Professional Coding Manager credentials and other Exam prep courses for specialty Medical coding credentials for OB-GYN, Gastroenterology and Pediatrics. So, once I reach my goals and I pursue further education.
