IHCC Medical/Insurance Coding Program Approved by PCAP

OTTUMWA-Indian Hills Community College’s Medical/Insurance Coding program has been approved by the Professional Certificate Approval Program (PCAP) Council through April of 2020. Indian Hills is the only approved program in the state of Iowa and one of only 28 PCAP-approved programs in the nation.


Sarah Cottington, Health Informatics Program Director, said the PCAP Council commended Indian Hills for its commitment to the development of an outstanding coding diploma program.


“Holding our coding students to the same high standard of quality and excellence was evident in the PCAP application,” Cottington said.


Students in the Medical/Insurance Coding program, which is offered entirely online, complete the first four terms of the Health Information Technology (HIT) program.  That program has been accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education for many years. HIT graduates earn Associate of Applied Science degrees for completing the seven-term program.
