About Us


Association for Rural & Community Health Professional Coding is an education and membership organization dedicated to providing quality education to rural health professionals and clinicians, including the nation’s only rural health coding credentials, for those who serve America’s under-served patients at Rural Health Clinics (RHCs),  Federally Qualified/Community Health Centers (FQHCs) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs)

ARHPC formed as a business unit of Universal Medical & Compliance in January 2007 and quickly began educating rural healthcare professionals in several states with a recent primary focus on ICD-10 but remaining to our core of capturing and reporting all medical services via CPT, HCPCS-II, ICD-10-CM/PCS coding with a focus on appropriate and complete clinical documentation. 

Our expansion to community health and school-based health centers is in line with our commitment to serve those who serve the un- and under-insured patients in America.  We are based in metro-Atlanta, GA and have Adjunct Faculty across the country.



The Association for Rural & Community Health Professional Coding has formed various educational partnerships with close to half of America’s state rural health and hospital associations including our friends in Georgia, Louisiana, Colorado, Illinois, South Carolina, Delaware, Arizona, Oregon, Florida, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Connecticut, Virginia, Texas, and Alabama.



We offer the nation’s only credential specifically designed or the unique aspects of capturing and reporting medical records documentation in America’s Health Safety Net medical facilities as a Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS) for members of the rural health community, Community Health Coding & Billing Specialist (CH-CBS) for those in Federally-Qualified Health Centers and Critical Access Hospital Coding & Billing Specialists (CAH-CBS) for who work in a critical access hospital setting.

We offer online continuing education worth nationally recognized Continuing Education Units, via 24/7/365 access to its eLearning Center and access to frequent industry updates and support questions from coding and billing experts via the Member Center.



We provide a blended learning solution to clinical providers (MD, DO, NP, PA, CP, CSW, RN, etc.), professional coders & medical billersQuality Measurement staff, Health IT/Electronic Health Records staff, and anyone associated with a health care organization’s efforts to use medical records documentation for understanding what services were performed, generating revenue, measuring clinical effectiveness, or tracking public health.

We believe that you should access to information when you want, where you want it, and how you want it – in other words when you want it, where you want it, and on all of your mobile devices by delivering:
