In March 2020, I was furloughed with pay from my job and I was questioning what to do next in response to my situation and career aspirations. I saw an ad in my email address from Medical Coding Academy about the online course. I’ve seen the ad before throughout the years, but this time it looked something I really wanted to do. So I contacted MCA and got my information about the program. I purchased my books (CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-10-CM) through Elsevier and I never went through with purchasing the program through MCA. I had doubts about the program, and I didn’t go through with it. So I returned the books and went through another self-paced program. BIG MISTAKE!!! Their program was so long and so boring I wasn’t able to finish it. To top it all off, I couldn’t even afford it so now I’m currently paying off the loan. On November 2020, I got an ad stating that the 2020 online course was on sale for $899. I didn’t have anything to lose, so I purchased the course and it was the best thing I have ever done! The course is put together so well. Mrs. Ortega goes over everything for example what to highlight in the book, how to tab the books, what materials you need to study every day, and online help from teachers if you need it. If you buy this program, DO EXACTLY WHAT SHE SAYS!!! If you do, you will pass your exam. I started the program November 8 and finished December 13 and took my exam December 19 and I passed my CPC exam with a 90%! I would like to thank Mrs. Ortega and the MCA team for the incredible work she has put into this program and for helping me to pass my exam and to start my new career as a medical coder.
MCA is hands down the best! Mrs. Ortega’s teaching technique has been an amazing experience. I really enjoyed the online course, it was well planned and layed out, easy for me to follow and understand. The flexibility of this course works well with a busy schedule. Throughout, the entire course, I felt like I was in the class room with Mrs. Ortega, the videos are awesome and very easy to understand. Mrs. Ortega, you have made a positive difference in my life and you are the reason I accomplished this program.Mrs. Belen and the MCA staff are always friendly, professional and helpful. I highly recommend MCA!
It really work! It was simple and easy to comprehend. Do do everything she tells you! Seriously just do it!
This is the best informative and instructional course I have ever taken . Ms Ortega makes it simple and easy to learn. If you “Do Everything she says “ your surely pass your test on the first round.
I just got my exam results. I finally passed my CPC exam. All I can say is thank you for giving your students the necessary tools to pass. Ms. Ortega’s voice was in my mind every time I felt like giving up. I’m so glad I didn’t, I will forever be thankful for all your help ♥️
Medical Coding Academy was the best decision I made in reaching my goal of becoming a Certified Medical Coder. Ms. Ortegas' in depth coding knowledge & structure of the course was integral in my passing the CPC exam. Ms. Ortega & her staff have been nothing but responsive & helpful whenever Ive reached out. I would highly recommend this program!
I feel blessed to have found Medical Coding Academy. The staff has been amazing. They always respond quickly and seem happy to help with anything you need. Mrs. Ortega course was fun and easy to follow with step by step instructions. I gained so much knowledge and passed the CPC exam on my first try. I look forward to taking additional courses with the academy and getting more of the "alphabet soup" behind my name.
I started this journey in 2017 to sit and pass the CPC. Unfortunately, I thought I could pass with no direction or instruction (Failed it). I just started the online course and so far I’m excited about my success. This will be the third and final time I take the CPC exam. Will update my results later
I took the online class. I was able to work at my own pace and I ended up passing my CPC exam on the first try. I wish I would’ve discovered this program sooner.

I met Ms. Ortega about 10 years ago when she was a teacher at a technical school i was going to. Even though she was going through her own career struggles at that time she put her students before herself and helped guide them in the right direction for their careers. She is the most loving and caring person I have ever known. She has come such a long way and has done it all just to help others. I consider her my mentor. She is just absolutely an amazing person. She is not in this industry for money or even for herself, she is doing what she is doing because she loves to help others and that is the most important thing to think about when looking for a school; if they truly care about their students. And Ms. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy cares about each and every one of their students. Not only does she want to teach you but she wants to make sure you pass your exam on the first try when finished with her courses and get into a wonderful and growing career and succeed. She is the best with her lessons and getting the information across to understand and remember. I highly recommend Medical theCoding Academy over any other billing and coding school. They do in person classes and online classes and Ms. Ortega is the best when it comes to teaching people! Even if you have doubts about whether choosing Medical Coding Academy or not they always have someone available to talk to to answer any questions. Please don't pass up the opportunity to learn from Ms. Ortega. I promise you that you will not regret it and will have such a great future in this career field if you learn from her! And will have fun while learning as well. Once again, an absolutely amazing school and an even more amazing teacher!
Just received my test scores for CPC certification after completing the Medical Coding Academy coursework--I passed! On the FIRST try. Thanks a lot, Mrs. Ortega. There's only one way from here, and that's up!
I would highly recommend the Medical Coding Academy to anyone who wants to study for the Certification exam in the most efficient way. I did my whole medical coding course online during this COVID-19 pandemic time. MCA offers a good and affordable program and Mrs. Ortega is diligent in teaching the necessary skills for coding. There are many times when difficult questions arise and all the appropriate answers are in her videos. I achieved success in my medical coding studies due to the instructions of Mrs. Ortega. I passed my exam on the first try under her preparation materials. Thank you to Mrs. Ortega and the Medical Coding Academy.
I finished the course in 3 mo. and just passed the Mock exam. Loved how Ms.Ortega explains everything to the T And Her teaching strategies is direct and unique. I had ZERO knowledge or experience in the medical coding field Is amazing how much knowledge I gained from this course. She truly prepares you very well and I feel confident enough to take my board exam and pass on my first try. I was hesitant at first to buy the course but after reading so many positive reviews I took the leap of faith and went for it best decision ever made!
I am very grateful for Mrs.Ortega and the MCA staff. Mrs.Ortega made it possible so that I could take the online CPC course. The course is very organized and easily retainable, as long as you do everything she says! Mrs. Ortega is an awesome teacher. I haven’t taken the exam yet but I’m positive I will pass on the first attempt. I will return to post my exam results. So, if you are looking for a course in medical coding I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy!!
I cannot express how grateful I am for Ms. Ortega! I took the online course and truly enjoyed learning. She is an excellent teacher and makes a difficult subject easy to understand. I did everything she said, took the exam last week, and passed on the first try (just like she promised!) 🙂 Very excited to be certified. Thanks Ms. Ortega and MCA!
My experience with Mrs. Ortega's Medical Coding Academy was amazing. Her staff, especially Belen, are always helpful. I chose to do the self pace route and if you listen to her and do EXACTLY what she says, you will pass. I recommend this school to any and everyone.
Ms. Ortega and her team knew what they were doing when they launched Medical coding academy online. I had some previous experience with other schools but was not prepared at all. This program is worth it you will learn the guidelines in the easiest way possible you will learn how to select the correct codes and have life long lessons for the workplace and so much more. I almost gave up on my career until I discovered Ms. Ortega genius program thank you.

I HIGHLY recommend Medical Coding Academy. I am new to this industry and I initially thought it would be overwhelming to take a 3 day bootcamp course, so I chose to do the online course. After following along with the unique teaching of Mrs Ortega, I soon realized I would have been fine either way. Mrs Ortega teaches in away that is very thought provoking yet simple to follow. And the wonderful part about online learning is that you can go at your own pace, pause and review, and take notes as needed. I am forever grateful to Mrs Ortega and her team, because I passed that very CHALLENGING board exam 😉 and I look forward to a successful future. So if you are on the fence about Medical Coding Academy, I suggest you jump on over, and DO EVERYTHING THIS WOMAN TELLS YOU TO DO!! Enjoy you journey, and be Blessed.
I am so grateful to Mrs. Ortega and her amazing team at MCA! I made the decision to change careers 6 months ago. I never could have imagined that I would now be a certified coder ready to apply for jobs! I can't say enough good things about the online course. Mrs. Ortega has designed a truly unique course that is affordable and delivers everything it promises. The videos are concise and engaging. The practice cases will build your confidence and teach you amazing test taking strategies that you won't find anywhere else. I was delighted when I passed the certification exam on the first try! The preparation work may feel tedious in the beginning but stick with it. Everything in this course is designed with purpose and intention. I am amazed at how skilled I have become in such a short period of time. Thanks MCA!! 😃

Thanks to Medical Coding Academy I was able to study and pass my CPC certification exam.
I originally was VERY hesitant to sign up for any online course when you hear about all the scams out there. I signed up for a course at a local school that would have taken 9 months to complete to then be prepared to take the CPC. I never researched any online courses out of fear. I then was really feeling like I was wasting time waiting for my classes to begin and started researching more. I found Medical Coding Academy and the rest is history! I requested a refund back from the school I enrolled in right away. Belen was so amazing to help me navigate signing up and answering all of my skeptical questions. I am proud to say that 3.5 weeks after starting my online courses I passed my CPC exam with an 83%! Listen, nothing worthwhile is easy. The program is not designed to rush through it etc. I was only able to finish so much coursework so fast because I studied full time at least 8 hours a day. I am currently out of work and was able to dedicate my every moment into this. Mrs. Ortega tells you exactly what you need to do. Follow her instructions. Another tip is to pause the video and work out the case prior to her going through it. Then see if you got the correct answer. This took exponentially longer but sure paid off in the long run. It is challenging but she explains it so well and in detail. It will feel overwhelming in the beginning but it all comes full circle just keep pushing. I also recorded myself reading my notes as well as flash cards. I would go walking and have them playing to help me study on the go. You will have to work but she gives you every tool you need. If you want to pass your test and understand guidelines etc then take this course. I am excited for my future and to see where this takes me! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for developing a curriculum that kept my attention and was methodical. Thank you Belen for standing by to help me with any questions or support I needed! PS I am still waiting for my prior school to issue a refund check! I already finished my course and passed my test! How amazing is that!? You get out of it what you put in so remember that!
Totally disappointed in the information relayed to me. I had plenty of questions, to which there weren’t clear answers. I had questions after the class and tried contact the instructor for answers, but the “gatekeeper” wouldn’t put me in touch. She also said that she would have this person contact me. That was almost two weeks ago. I paid good money for the course, but wasn’t satisfied in how the curriculum was carried out. Namely, it wasn’t the instructor’s curriculum. That led to some serious concerns. I feel you no longer have an interest once the money has been paid and the class taken. You have all these success stories posted, but you should also post the problem stories and address them as well. Consider me a dissatisfied customer! Money definitely not well invested.
I completed the online training for my CPC using Medical Coding Academy. Mrs.Ortega was awesome! Everything was straightforward and to the point no needless fluff. All of the tips and tricks came in handy like she says “do what I say” and I passed the exam on my first try. Could not be happier with this course! The instruction videos and materials are very comprehensive, anytime I had a question or concern they were right there with an answer very very quick to respond and that meant everything to me. Thank you Medical Coding Academy and thank you Mrs.Ortega!
This is to SAY a big thank you to Mrs Ortega and the team. I bought the online CPC program, DID EVERYTHING she said to do, read the question rationales, read the GO TO PAGE daily and Kept it moving. I completed the program in 3 months less 4 days and took the test and passed on the first try. MCA has worked hard to focus on the majors for this course and I bless them for this! Thank you so much. If you are still wondering if you should sign up, please do and 'keep it moving'
This class was absolutely life changing for me. I had made 2 previous attempts to enter the medical coding industry over the last 4 years, but the teaching from that particular program was over my head and the online classroom platform was so confusing to access the information. Ms. Ortega and the Medical Coding Academy have made this experience absolutely unforgettable. I started the class and finished it in less than two months. If it wasn’t for the user friendly online platform, instructional videos broken down to where anyone with or without experience can understand, personalized option plans for timeframe to complete class at one’s own pace, class materials that revolutionized the way I viewed the coding books, and the desire to see the students succeed was ABSOLUTELY WHAT I NEEDED! Thank you Ms Ortega and MCA!
I just finished the online coding course and passed the mock exam (mock exam, flashcards and textbook included in the course). This course is absolutely incredible. Mrs. Ortega and her team did an amazing job with the production and put together a jaw dropping amount of information and materials for each student. Mrs. Ortega is thorough and decisive throughout the course. She keeps your attention and is very to the point, focusing in everything you need to pass the board exam. The 350 Cases textbook is honestly a blessing. It breaks down each and every case so you can easily understand the material and Mrs. Ortega is with you every step of the way going through all 350 on video with you. She clarifies everything with ease and to the best of her ability for full understanding. I would love to attend the 3-day course as well just because!-Double the learning but this will unfortunately depend now on the covid situation. Regardless, even if I can't attend the 3-day, I know with the MCA coding online course I have been given all the information I need to sit for the board exam. Listening and doing everything Mrs. Ortega says and putting in the work is key! After finishing the course and being an MCA "Go-To" coder, I know that I have a huge advantage to passing the national exam over the traditional classroom student. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication Mrs. Ortega and the MCA family, you are so appreciated.
Ok. So, I didn’t have Facebook and I normally don’t leave reviews but Mrs. Ortega and her Medical Coding Family that I’m now a part of are worth every bit of this!! Did I tell you I hate Facebook! Anyway, let me explain to you the character of Mrs. Ortega and how her actions in her Momma Coder programs speak volumes about her.. Towards the beginning of her career as an instructor she noticed the struggles and disappointments of her students not being able to pass their boards. So, it saddened her deeply and she wondered there has to be more she could.do ...well here you have it folks, she has taken so much time out of her life to possibly make things easier for example she has her own book color code tabbing system that alone is work!! She makes coding look easy and pulls all the important information out. And makes understanding easier! She has catchy phrases and ways of helping you remember things . I don’t know very many instructors or people for that matter . That would do all this for strangers.. Her students at which she has never met but cares so very much about!!You are truly the BEST thanks for your patience , positivity and phone calls that pulled me through getting my certificate!

Mrs Ortega was a great teacher. I was suppose to go to the 3 day bootcamp; however, due to Covid-19 I chose to switch to online. I was afraid that doing the online course I would feel disconnected , and that was not the case at a I would recommend Medical Coding Academy to anyone who is interested in the medical field. I passed my test on the first try and felt extremely prepared for the test. Thank you Mrs Ortega and the staff at MCA!
After being disabled all throughout my 20's and then suddenly having no choice but to get back into the workforce as a single mother in my early 30's, I felt totally overwhelmed by my direction in life. With a lot of personal medical experience under my belt, I decided that a medical admin career would be ideal. So, I enrolled in an expensive online college to get a certificate in medical coding and billing. Cut to a few weeks into my first semester when I stumbled upon Mrs. Ortega's YouTube videos... I watched one, then another, then another. I just loved her energy so much. Her story and path to creating MCA really spoke to me. I could feel her determination and positivity and I instantly knew that I had to leave my school and somehow figure out how to do the MCA online program! It was not easy for me to afford out of pocket, but I have felt so strongly from day 1 about this course and I knew I had to make some sacrifices to build a career and a future. Let me tell you, this was one of the best decisions I've ever made! The online course was extremely well designed. The materials that come with the course are absolutely beautiful and made with so much love and thought! Honestly, the 350 case book is so impressive! Was there a lot of work to do? TONS! Was it all worth it? 100%! Mrs. Ortega teaches strategies that are so crucial to success. I thoroughly enjoyed her friendly and "motherly" approach. I cannot even imagine trying to learn the E&M section without this program! Before this program, I felt really scared about my future and now I feel like I have a path toward the career I've always wanted to have. I feel hopeful and I owe it to Mrs. Ortega and her staff who have graciously helped me numerous times! Thank you for doing what you do! Thank you for making this online course accessible to someone like myself who lives across the country! Thank you for your tips, your guidance, your prayers and the inspiration that you have given me! I pray you will create more online courses in the future. I will absolutely come back for more credentials if you do! ♥️💪
Medical Coding Academy has been nothing but amazing, Mrs. Ortega is an awesome teacher she explains everything with ease. Her knowledge and love for the industry shines thru with her teaching. You will not be disappointed with MCA!
I don't know where to began with giving this review, because there are so many GOOD things to say about this program in the short time I have known about it. I was informed about this program in Jan of 2020 and it has been nothing short of a wonderful experience! From the staff, Mrs. Ortega and the knowledge that she provides for preparing you for your Coding Certification. I was given so much information that I needed from the beginning to the end, and although I have not taken my exam yet which is scheduled for both 6/18 & 6/19 due to covid-19 I feel more than ready to take the test!!! I will forever be Thankful for Mrs. Ortega & her wonderful staff for providing such a full proof program! I am looking forward to continuing my education with her & getting more certifications via her knowledge & programs! THANK YOU SO MUCH! if you are wondering if this is a good program..trust me it really is!!! but don't just take my word for it, judge for yourself and watch that you will feel the same way! I will come back to report how I did on my exam!!
Ms. Ortega and everyone at Medical Coding Academy are amazing. I passed my CPC on the first try and had time to spare. Her methodology is effective and you will definitely reap the benefits if you choose this program. I'm proud to say im now a Go-to coder!!
hands down no comparison Ms. Ortega is the best and MCA is the best. I passed my test first try I aced it.
I want to thank MCA for their E&M training. I have been taking an online course through another school and doing pretty well. However, I was completely lost when it came to E&M. Mrs. Ortega made it so easy to understand and her passion for coding is contagious. I was smiling through the whole video. I will be checking out MCA for my future coding credentials. You are truly a Godsend.
I want to thank Mrs. Ortega for offering the Online Video course. Her explanations were broken down easy enough to understand. Her colorful underlining in the videos helped me locate the key points to assign a medical code without reading the whole story. She alerted the student when it was necessary to read the whole medical case documentation. With the Evaluation and Management section I was quite impressed on how she labeled the CPT manual in order to figure out the leveling with confidence. Her tips and tricks gave me enough confidence for me to go out into the work force. I want to thank you for your Online Video course and please continue publishing. I give you a 5 STAR and recommend this course to anyone.Thank you,Carol Walter GO TO CODER Online courseGainesville GA

So now that I have a chance to settle back into self after the extreme bootcamp this pass 3 days, I wanted to take time out to say thank you sooo much Mrs. Ortega. Not only did you give me the weapon of knowledge to do my exam today, you restored a sense of faith that I didn’t know I have been so far away from. The most rewarding feeling is knowing that someone else is fighting just as hard as you are to succeed and speaks it to existence EVERYDAY. But the true MVP is your husband. For those who will read this, she works hard day and night to give success by shining light and faith onto her students; but he works even harder in the shadows to make sure the light inside her heart for who she is and what she is doing for others shines brighter. I’m a winner because of you guys. And if I don’t miss ANYTHING else, I’m definitely going to miss your smile. Thank you both. And for others reading this, if you are interested enough to look her up, don’t doubt making that move to see her. TAKE THE CLASS! You want to see it to believe it TAKE THE CLASS!!! But if you don’t want to take you future seriously (in Mrs. Ortega’s voice (for those who took her class)) keep it moving.
i like teaching strategy of mrs.ortegaa...i passed my exam on first try.This is the best medical academy ever.God bless you ortegaa

I took the 3 day CPC course in December 2019 and it was amazing! I came to this course with ZERO knowledge of medical coding and Ms. Ortega was able to give me a great foundation of knowledge and understanding in just 3 days. The teaching style is quite engaging and enjoyable so there was no time for my mind to drift. Ms. Ortega was helpful and answered student questions during the course as well. I left her class feeling confident to dive into this career change. Thank you, MCA and Ms. Ortega!
This woman is God sent. Mrs. Ortega is a one of kind instructor. I’ve never had an instructor that is so eager to get her students to pass the certification exam. She is very passionate about medical coding and her students. I’ve taken her 3 day class and it was nothing short of amazing. Trust me it’s a lot of hard work but the end result will be great! I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy. One thing to remember is DO EXACTLY WHAT THIS WOMAN SAYS!!!
Mrs Ortega is very passionate about her students and will go above and beyond to make sure you have all the tools to pass the exam and be an amazing coder. The hours were long and fast paced but, definitely worth it. I highly recommend MCA to anyone that is interested in becoming a coder. I’ll definitely be back for the alphabet soup !!!
Great teacher! Great experience! Are you hesitant? Don’t be! Listen to her and she will get you there!
Ms Ortega is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy. I took the Online Course and it was amazing. I learned so much. Just recently sat for my exam and now awaiting results. Thank you Ms Ortega for answering the call of GOD to teach. Be Blessed!!!
Hey, just wanted to tell you that I love love love 💕 the new 350 cases workbook!!! I have only done 10k but am at 💯 with it!!!!It's laid out beautifully, I hope this confidence continues!!! I appreciate all of your (MCA)hard work to help us pass the test!!!
I recently attended the 3-day Medical Coding Class in Dallas, Tx taught by Ms.Delissa Ortega. Before this class I did take a 9-month course in coding at a local college. However, I feel that I learned more in the 3-day class then the 9-month course. Ms. Ortega is a very dedicated teacher my and she inspired me to accomplish goals. I feel this course has prepared me for a rewarding future in the medical coding field. Also, you will learn something new if you decide to attend one of the courses that are offered.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mrs. Ortega and the entire MCA team! I completed the Medical Coding Academy online course in 6 weeks and passed the CPC Board Exam 5 days later! I have been out of the workforce for 13 years raising my children and I was very nervous about taking on a brand new career without any prior knowledge or experience, but Mrs. Ortega's stellar reputation and all of the 5 star reviews gave me the confidence to go for it. And I am so glad I did! The online course is amazing! It is organized and easy to follow with clear instructions every step of the way. I loved doing the online course because I could go through each section as many times as I needed to get a strong understanding of the material. The MCA team was a huge resource as they were there to answer any questions along the way. And even though Mrs. Ortega was not physically there with me, I could feel her genuine desire for me to succeed. Her innovative teaching and test taking strategies coupled with her clear and to the point teaching style are a recipe for success. "Do everything this woman says!"
The entire experience was amazing. Ms. Ortega is so confident, and rightfully so. She has a brilliant way about teaching and I don't feel as if I stood any kind of chance of passing my board exam without having attended her 3 day course. She has put together a fool-proof system that not only allows her students to pass their exam, but makes them feel super confident in going into the work force as a certified coder. I look forward to continuing my education with her. I passed my exam on the first try!
In October, I attended MCA CPC 3-day Bootcamp in Atlanta taught by Mrs. Ortega. The decision to register was difficult due to finances; however, it was one of the BEST decisions I’ve ever made. Mrs. Ortega’s teaching passion was evident from the beginning of the bootcamp until the very end. She was answering questions even as she was leaving to catch her flight. She is an AMAZING teacher. Not only did she explain coding techniques, but she also shared a wealth of knowledge on what to expect in the real world of coding. She encouraged, motivated and challenged us not to stop at a CPC credential, but to pursue additional credentialing (which I will ONLY do through MCA). I had taken two other coding classes prior to MCA and neither educated me the way Mrs. Ortega and the assigned required pre-work has. Yes, you will have to put in the work, but I’m pleased to report that I PASSED the exam on my second attempt after being only 4 points off on my first attempt. First, Praise be to God and second, Thank You Mrs. Ortega. I’m already preparing to register with MCA for my next certification.If you’re contemplating on whether you should register with MCA, I pray my review will assist you in that decision. Let 2020 be the beginning of something NEW. Again, my sincere thanks to Mrs. Ortega for giving us your “ALL.” May God continue to Bless You!!!!!

I recently took the three day intensive class and all I can say is wow! When I sat for the board certification test I felt sorry for the people there that took their classes at a community college or another online program. There is alot of information to learn in three days, I compare it to learning 6 huge reference books. However Ms. Ortega has a gift to teaching this subject very thoroughly so that you learn it thoroughly. She also teaches on how to take the test so that when you finally taking the test you are very familiar with the format. This woman is gifted and she cares about you and will sit down with you to go over any obstacle that you may have. I plan on advancing to other certifications and will gladly fly to Texas again from North Carolina to be a student of the Medical Coding Academy. It simply does not make sense to spend 6 months in a class elsewhere and still not receive the knowledge and passion from this organization. I am very grateful that I made the decision to attend this 3 day class. I am completely new to this industry and feel validated that I made the correct decision and will gladly do it again. Thank you Medical Coding Academy and Ms. Ortega.
Mrs.Ortega is an amazing teacher. I had taken my first CPC exam 5 years ago and failed😔. Life happened and I never retook it until this past weekend. A good friend recommended Medical Coding Academy to me and thank God I took her advice. I took the course online while also taking 2 regular college online classes for my bachelor's. I am happy to share that I passed, oh and I took the test while being 34 weeks pregnant. If it wasn't for God and him putting Mrs. Ortega in my life I would have failed again. She made it simple and I praise God for that. God bless you Mrs.Ortega. I highly recommend this course ...do everthing Mrs. Ortega says and you will pass!!!!!
This "Boot Camp" was fantastic from the word GO! Miss Ortega and every single person on her staff for that matter are there to make sure NOBODY gets left behind. YOU work hard no lie, hence my reference to the "Boot Camp" but they all work just as hard as you do & right along side of you. ALL questions are answered no matter how many times it takes to make sure we are all on the same wave length. Miss Ortega has a truly Blessed nature for teaching and and does a fabulous job! She is the most caring person I have ever taken a class from, she is not there for the dollar signs she is there for pleasure of helping you to succeed and improve your own self! I learned more in the 3 days I had with her than I did in any face to face course I had taken with Brick and Mortar charging me a through the teeth... I am awaiting my results for the exam I took now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.... will never truly show how much I appreciate what she and her team have done for me!! However; the fact that I will be back for another "Boot Camp" to get to the next Alphabet Credential, does say a lot... I could not and would not dare try it without the Medical Coding Academy Team!!!
Nia Rachelle Minor
I took my exam on December 7th and found out I passed with a "B" average! I only studied the Medical Coding Academy online program for 2 months while working full-time! This program is amazing and I am so happy I followed my gut and paid for this program! Please keep doing the online program for other certifications!
I have never had a teacher like Miss Ortega. You can really tell she is passionate about what she does and providing a future in coding to others. SHE REALLY LOVES WHAT DOES! I’ve never had a teacher break things down the way she does. The class is fast paced, so you better get that pre work done. She gives you ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL. All you have to do is listen to her.. listen to everything she says, don’t over think it, and do your pre work! I was very confident going into my test.... nervous, but CONFIDENT! I had no coding experience but years of insurance authorizations and was feeling a little stuck.. not anymore. This class is your opportunity...This is class is real, you will learn coding and YOU WILL PASS YOUR TEST!
I recently attended MCA 3day Boot Camp for CPC, I’m still Floating off Confidence. Mrs. Ortega teaching skills is one of a kind! She’s passionate & driven to help ALL her students succeed. I already have a coding certification but I was lacking the depth concept, listening to Mrs. Ortega explain cases, rationale answers finally a light bulb went off. All these years I’ve been hesitant to obtain my CPC...shame on me! I’m ready to go for CPMA next!! Do NOT waste your money on any other school, MCA is worth the investment!!!

I just took this class in Dallas these past 3 days and took my test today. Not sure if I will pass or not because I ran out of time and had to do some guessing which Im not happy about. If I would’ve had another hour, there’s no doubt I would pass the test. While I was taking the test, I was feeling very confident and happy because everything we discussed in class was in the test and the “Pot of Gold” was very useful. Those 27 questions were an easy ride for me. I’m glad I took them in the order that Mrs. Ortega recommended. I could hear Mrs. Ortegas voice in my mind saying like it and keep it moving. Lol! Overall, the test wasn’t hard because this class prepared me very well and I did everything that woman said. My book came with missing pages and Mrs. Ortega was so kind and gave me those pages from her book. I ended up needing them for the test. This class was great. I wanted to wait until I took the test to write a review for this class. This class definitely prepared you with EVERYTHING you need for the test. Mrs. Ortega is very passionate about it, very patient and helpful. I do have a few suggestions, but honestly they are so minor that I’m not even going to mention them. I recommend this class 100% and if you do your prework (MUST do), do your homework and pay attention in class, you can easily pass the test. I was really surprised when I started taking the test and I saw that the questions were very similar to what we discussed in class. It’s like Mrs. Ortega wrote the test. 😂 If you are planning to get certified as a CPC, don’t hesitate and take this class!

Where do I begin? I took my test today and funny story, when we were in the class Ms. Ortega’s saying is KEEP IT MOVING. By the way, I wore my bracelet to my test. But anyway, she kept saying, pick this answer and KEEP IT MOVING. The whole time I was taking my test, I literally could hear her saying it every time I chose the right one. I even smiled and laughed to myself. Who does that during a test?Thank you Ms. Ortega and her holy crew for being patient with us, and sharing your gift, your passion, but most of all, your time. I felt like a rock star going into that test and with an hour to spare, I walked out feeling just the same, it’s all because of you. When I pass I know for a fact, I’ll be back on here posting that BIG PASSING SCORE! I’m gonna take a picture. Bless you!!
You have got to check out Medical coding Academy! I take the test in the morning and I feel very confident. Be prepared to do a lot of work in those three days! Do the pre work even if you have questions you can edit it later! There is a reason there are no bad reviews, she is the best!

The yellow "souvenoir" bracelet you receive on the first day upon entering... Ah! so cute.. but wait, what is the non-colored engraving on the inside?? That's right, scripture! I know now, with God and the gift he has given Mrs. Ortega to teach that I will be just fine!fine!-I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! -I will not self preserve. she believed she could so she did!!!
I did the Medical Coding Academy’s online exam prep course. Thank you for this great package that enabled an absolute beginner like myself having no previous experience to pass the CPC test through AAPC on the first try. If you put in the work you will see results and will have all the resources and much more to pass the test, get you to the interview and be prepared for the job.
This was an AMAZING experience!!!! You can honestly tell from the minute that she walks into the room that she truly wants to see her students succeed. I had no experience whatsoever, and I was able to understand it. I, unfortunately, did not pass on my first try (due to my own anxiety), but I did as Mrs.Ortega asked and emailed her immediately. She was very responsive and willingly sent me the tools that I needed. I then sat for my test and passed on my next try with FLYING COLORS!!!!! She is excellent and you will NOT regret taking this course.
OMG! I just passed my CPC test on my first try! English is my second language and I finished the online school in 2 months. Thank you for Medical Coding Academy 🙏🏻 I wish all of you good luck! Mrs. Ortega is truly the best! Thank you!!!
Tara Inglett Villalobos
Mrs. Ortega is a power house!! She will teach you ways of choosing the correct answer, that will make your head spin . It's amazing at how she teaches. You WILL NOT regret taking her class. I encourage you to be that one who says THANK YOU in the end.
Medical Coding Academy has changed my life!! Ms Ortega is the BOMB instructor whose teaching style is absolutely AMAZING!! She teaches in a way where one can easily understand. Upon completion of this awesome class, I passed my exam!! Many thanks to Ms Ortega, Ms Belen, and the entire MCA staff for your kindness/help!! You all have impacted my life, more than you'll ever know! May GOD continue to bless you all and MCA❤❤
I just took the CPC course with Mrs Ortega and it was great! Not only did she make sure everyone understood the lessons, she taught us techniques that will help us be faster and better coders. You can tell Mrs Ortega cares about her students and she knows how to teach. I recommend her course. I also recommend that when you do sign up that you DO THE PRE WORK! Thank you for creating this course Mrs. Ortega!
I had the pleasure of attending CPC 3 day boot camp and I must saying it was nothing but amazing. Mrs Ortega covered not only every part of the test but strategies to make taking the test less time consuming and ways to make the test easier and less stress stressful. Definitely worth the investment.
Mary Ellen Schultz
Mrs. Ortega teaches the subject so I now understand. I had tried another online program and it was not good. I just purchased Module A and it makes sense to me. Thank you, Mrs. Ortega,
Words can’t come close to describe Mrs. Ortega’s teaching style! She is unique, tactful and called by Jesus. I came into the class on Friday morning, honestly not even sure a teacher would show up...I was skeptical. She was the best teacher I have ever had in my life- including college. I learned SO MUCH and I didn’t even know what coding was at 8am on Friday. It’s Sunday at 5pm and I’m a confident “Go-to-coder” xoxo, Mrs. Ortega, it’s all about youuuuUuuuUuu 😂
I have just completed the FANTASTIC course for CPC medical billing and coding. I began this course with very little knowledge on codes. The way Mrs. Ortega instructed her class was phenomenal. She explained everything in such a way that was very easy for me to understand. She also did not go to the next topic until EVERYONE understood and was on the same page. I am extremely confident I will pass my exam on the first try after completing this EXCEPTIONAL course. Mrs. Ortega, thank you so much for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 😊
Theresa Abraham Trost
It was a GREAT experience. I learned so much from Mrs. Ortega. She is a wonderful teacher. She knows how to teach. You learn from her. Anyone who wants to go into to medical coding field needs to take her class. SHE KNOWS HER STUFF. The way she teaches you will pass the exam. She is the best in the business hands down.
I absolutely recommend MCA, I wasted thousands on an online class, I never felt confident about the material, nor taking the test...I waited over a year to take test, because I didn’t feel prepared...so when I finally took it, I failed...twice...I started searching for a classroom setting & ran across videos with Mrs Ortega, MCA...I live 5 hours from Dallas, where the next class would be, but after watching her teaching style & reading the great reviews, I took a leap of faith...I attended the Oct 4-6, 2019 class & I learned so much!!!...she’s very passionate about teaching EACH person!!...her gift of teaching is faith based, so I knew I was in the right place...she’s very intelligent, caring & teaches you how to quickly find codes & apply them correctly...the 3 day is long & tiring, but the end result is nothing short of a miracle, I’m looking forward to taking my test on Oct 19, 2019...best decision I’ve made for MYSELF in over 3 years!!!...so glad I found her & MCA!...thx, blessings
I recently attended Mrs. Ortega 3 day CPC class, and I was simply amazed by her class. I truly learned and obtained all of the information she gave us. I have a hard time focusing and learning the task on hand, but with her knowledge and methods. I came out of her class on day 3 knowing that I was going to Ace my exam! I loved her teaching style and how she puts her faith first in everything she does. I got so much more out of her class than I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful for Mrs. Ortega and that I stumbled upon her Facebook page when I did. I know I kept going back and forth on if I should take the class or not but I’m so thankful that I did! If you are debating between which program you should take, don’t waste any more time and just take this one!!!
I just finished the 3 day coding course and I am blown away! Ms. Ortega knows her stuff and is an amazing woman! If you are wanting to be a coder, do yourself a favor and go to Medical Coding Academy..you WILL learn from the best! Thank you, Ms. Ortega!
I had the best experience learning something so hard yet so easy me Ortega is the best teacher . I truly loved her class and hope to take it again with another credential . She is the sweetest person and helps understand the Concept. This is the first class I truly have ever enjoyed
Just take the class. Nothing else needs to be said! I learned more in three days with Mrs Ortega than I did from all the time I wasted on the AAPC course. Half the people around me had tried the AAPC course route and found it too convoluted too. Now be prepared to WORK, but its worth it! If you sit down, keep your mouth shut and just absorb everything she says you will walk away from this class knowing you can do this. I would highly recommend her class to a person willing to show up and work, NOT COMPLAIN. I am already looking at which one day class I want to come take first for when I pass this test. I will say it again, JUST TAKE THE CLASS!
Okay, so, I'm writing this immediately after receiving my pass my CPC certification exam. I finished in 3 hours out of the 5 hours 40 minutes that the exam provides and passed with the equivalent of a B.Ms. Ortega knows her coding. Ms. Ortega knows the test. Ms. Ortega knows what works and what doesn't.This three-day course probably helped me prepare better for the exam than the official AAPC prep course. I've taken both; the prep course is good for the basics, but if you want to pass the exam and pass it quickly, then it would behoove you to attend Ms. Ortega's boot camp. It's well worth the price and the pain, I promise you.Listen to Ms. Ortega.Follow Ms. Ortega's instructions.Do as Ms. Ortega says and eat the exam for breakfast.It really is just that simple.
The online was AMAZING!! I loved it!! My friend and I (Lori) both signed up and took the program. We took our test this past Saturday. We both finished in 5 hours!!! Everyone else wasn’t anywhere near done. Also, out of 14 people only 3 of us were taking it the first time. One thing we noticed was the level intensity we gave to the test. We were the only ones mad flipping to codes in our books!! The others were sitting there just moseying along and reading every word..omg! Ms Ortega but omg I PASSED!!!!! Not only did I pass but I got an 84%!!! I’m so happy!! Thank you so much for this program!!!! Also, Lori passed too!! I do believe you were put in my path by God. You were an answer to my prayer!!! I DO know the ONLY way to pass is to use your program!!! By the way, I saw my doctor recently and actually told him pick something and keep it moving and sang the tune “If I have that too.... fix that too”!(a plug to your excludes 2 note for ICD-10😂) Anyway, I just wanted to let you know where we are and how thankful I am for your hard work in bringing this program to us!!! Thank you doesn’t even come close to conveying how I feel!! I booked a cruise for 1 week after my test so I could either reboot to take the test again or celebrate. I’ll be celebrating in the Caribbean this Sunday!!😊 I’m not stopping with this certification. I’ll be deciding which CRC 1 day class I’m attending before the end of the year!!!! Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!🎉

I took the 3 day CPC course back in August. Ms. Ortega is an amazing instructor. I had contemplated taking an 18 month course. I did some research and watch all her videos. I took a leap of faith and enrolled. It was the best decision I had made for myself. If you are on the fence don't be. You wont be disappointed!
Cathy Huey White
I completed the 3-day CPC course in August and it was one of the best decisions I have made. Mrs. Ortega is passionate about helping people change their lives and is so knowledgeable on all things coding related. Her ability to teach is outstanding! I did a lot of research by checking the reviews and watching her YouTube videos, and they are all 5 star which is a pretty remarkable feat in this day and age. I took my exam one week after the class and passed! Thank you Mrs. Ortega and MCA for a wonderful experience!
I took Ortega’s CPC class in Dallas the weekend of the 9th and found out I passed 2 days ago!! I recommend her class for ANYONE, even with no medical coding background, because I have none and passed my first try!! I’ve never met an individual more passionate as she is about her courses. As long as you do ALL your pre-work and listen to EVERYTHING this woman says then you’ll pass with no problem! Between her love and passion for medical coding and God her class is truly an amazing opportunity. I can’t thank Ortega and her phenomenal staff for an absolutely amazing experience!! I now look forward to my new chapter in life!! God Bless each of you wonderful people at the academy....😘
This course teaches you how to pass the test. There's no unnecessary fluff in this class. you get the info you need. Just do everything Mrs. Ortega tells you to do and you should pass your National Board Exam on the first try.
I took the MCA 3 day test prep class after taking, and failing, the CPC exam for the first time. I knew I had a free retake, but realized that the 9 month tech class I took to prepare for the test, did not prepare me enough. I can happily say that after taking the MCA class, I have taken and passed the test on the very next try! Mrs. Ortega is very well educated in the world of insurance coding, and will give you the tools you need to pass the test on the first try!
Mrs. Newby is an awesome and amazing instructor!!! I recently attended her CRC class and a week later, I took the exam and passed it. She is knowledgeable and thorough in her teaching and makes it clear and easy to understand. I highly recommend taking her CRC class to anyone who has an interest in Risk Adjustment coding. If you're interested in pursuing a coding career, Medical Coding Academy is the place to do it.
I attended this three day class in Dallas. What an intense three days it was. I learn things there I would not have learned anywhere else. I have taken other medical coding online classes that left me feeling totally unprepared to take the exam. After this three day class I feel very confident in my ability to do well on the exam. Mrs. Ortega has thought of everything! She gives us customized homework/practice to do until we take the exam, after the exam and the night before starting our first job to keep us fresh. Mrs. Ortega even gives guidance for the interview and I highly recommend purchasing her USB stick with resume templates letters of interest etc.This class was definitely worth every single penny it cost and I would recommend it to everyone wishing to become a medical coder. Don’t waste your time and money anywhere else.
I took the 3 Day Exam Prep Course with Ms. Ortega in Dallas August 9-11 and all I can say is OMG! Ms. Ortega broke everything down in a way that is very easy to understand. I am 100% confident that I will pass my CPC test next month. After I pass my CPC, I plan on going back to Ms. Ortega for my CRC. Thank you, Ms. Ortega!
I have been to many diffent certification classes in the last. I have always gotten a ton of information from teachers. I have then had to try and simplify it for myself so so could understand it in a way that is simple and fast. This class and Mr. Ortega have simplified it so much that you just have to get out of your own way and follow her instructions.This past weekend was to say the least, MIND BLOWING!!! Going through this class will open your eyes. It's a very tuff class ibuprofen and caffeine was my best friend for the next few days of class. When Ms. Ortega gets done with the class you are going to want to kick yourself for not doing this sooner!!!
I completed the 3 day course (Medical Coding boot camp) and let me say that it was definitely worth the time,money and sacrifices made to attend! Mrs Ortega is a BEAST of an instructor! She knows this stuff so darn well it’s mind blowing! Her passion for this industry and teaching it evident the moment she says hello to her class. I would most definitely recommend anyone who can take this 3 day course or the online course if you interested in Medical Coding. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY on any other program, I guarantee you will not be as prepared and equipped for the National Exam as you will with this Beautiful Gem! Thank You Mrs Ortega for your dedication to All of us as your students! You’re one of a kind! It is stuck in my head and will stay there til test day..”DO EVERYTHING THIS WOMAN SAYS” I am confident and I’ve claimed it! I will pass that exam! Thanks again! Much Love ❤️
MrsFrankye L Moore
Take the course and recieve a wealth of knowledge in Medical Billing and coding!!!
Mrs Ortega has to be certifiable insane. She breaks down a stupidly long (5 hr 40 min) test into bite sized pieces in just 3 days. Honestly that has to be the craziest thing I've done in my life. And she does it for SO CHEAP. She's crazy! (Crazy generous!)If you're debating about the price, it's so worth it. The AAPC course, directly from their site, is approx twice the price of Mrs Ortega's course AND she's teaching you, not you teaching yourself. I don't even need to compare the price of college to you, do I? Take the course; pass the test; change your life. Of course, YOU need to put work into it to. Mrs Ortega can only do so much hand holding (and she does a lot, trust me). DO THE PREWORK. So important! Do yourself a favor and take her classes while she still offers them.
Mrs. Ortega was literally the best teacher I have ever had! I wish to God I had this woman in High school so I could be smarter but anyhoo, this chick literally WROTE the book on medical coding!!! She knows everything there is to know and the best part is she shows you tricks to help u remember things you will use in the real world. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for starting me on my journey to a fulfilled future!!!Gina
So I finished the three day course today and it was nothing short of amazing. Being a biller with just have stuck my foot into coding before was one thing, but after taking this course it has opened up so many more opportunities and the insight she gives on what I can actually achieve is beyond appreciated. I will forever be in debt to Mrs Ortega bc not only did she teach me, she inspired me to reach for the stars. Going into this class I wanted to do better for my 3 boys, but after learning from her and really listening, I also wanted to do better for myself. Thank you SO MUCH Delissa and thank you to her team as well. You guys are amazing.
I just finished up the 3 day coding course today and I am SO glad that I decided to take a leap of faith and actually do it. Mrs. Ortega, you are truly a blessing and I can't thank you enough for all the hard work and time that you and your staff put into your program to help someone like me build a better future not only for myself but for my two kids as well. Simply saying "thank you" doesn't feel nearly enough but please just know that I truly am grateful for everything.
Just finish a intense 3 day Medical Coding class! It was worth every moment. Mrs. Oetega is a awesome anointed teacher sent from God. She will equip you with everything you need to pass the CPC test. Can not wait for the next class as well as being able to let her know I PASS on the first try. Thank you Women Of God for all that you did this week. Her staff is amazing as well.
Great Awesome teacher!! This weekend I received a ton of knowledge. Unbelievable how much was revealed within these boxes in three days! Thank you for Blessing / Changing My Life.
I was in Mrs. Ortega’s ATL class in June and proud to announce I passed my exam the first try!!!! Her class is was well worth it.
Rosio Olmos Lomeli
Absolutely 100% recommend Ms. Ortega and MCA's 3-Day course. Ms. Ortega embodies what a teacher is supposed to be and more. As a student coming from spending 2+ years at a community college and struggling to learn the concept of what coding is in the medical field, I can tell you I actually LEARNED all those years' worth of material and more in just 3 days! All in a concise, uncomplicated, simple way. I'm glad I took the risk and decided to go for Ms. Ortega and I'm positive I will pass the exam in a week's time. Invest in Ms. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy, do the work and you will not regret it. Will update as soon as I pass the exam.
I took mrs. Ortega's coc coding 3 day course July of 2019, and WOW!!! she is a Genius, and I do mean genius. she teaches you everything you need to know about coding. When she says she is there for you, she means that with all her being. Do not miss out on the opportunity of having the best teacher you will ever have the pleasure of learning from. I went to school for coding. I learned more of what I really needed to know in mrs. Ortega's 3 day course, than I learned in my 1 year class... she also has a Spirit of love not only for coding and teaching, but for each individual person. PEOPLE, DO NOT MISS OUT ON THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFE TIME, she will prepare you with the knowledge you need for coding. she also prepares you for interviews, what needs to be known and worn to an interview... Mrs. Ortega prepares you for the real world. So in a nutshell, do not miss out on the knowledge mrs. Ortega has to offer! Wait! I forgot that she also has a great tool for resumes... In Truth, Jeanette Hartunian.. GOD BLESS TO ALL
This course is worth every dime and minute of your time!!!! Thank you and God Bless you Mrs. Ortega, see you in Dallas soon.
Mrs. Ortega makes it easy to use and understand the coding books and prepares you for the test like no one else can! I feel like I am prepared for the test and will pass with flying colors! Thank you so much for your help this weekend 🙂
Amazing instructor, makes everything a lot easier to understand would recommend this class to anyone and already have to a few family members Thank you so much Mrs. Ortega for sharing all your knowledge with us and making it fun at the same time.. was well worth the trip from Alaska.
I got the online course and was given immediate access! Brownie point 1! I got all my exam prep kit materials on the mail and still cant lift my jaw off the ground about how impressed I am with it! Brownie point 2! McA has thought of it all!! Ive never seen anything like it. But the biggest that I've just completed the coding fundamentals module. I'm happy to report that I have already learned more in this one video from Mrs Ortega than I ever did when i was attended the 10 month vocational college..smh!!! cant believe I spent 20k on that school. If you're reading this you need to save yourselves the time and money and get the online from MCA. God I wish I would have found them first! Upward and onward..about to start the integumentary system!update!!!So I just had to jump on here and tell the Academy and anyone else who is reading this that I literally finished the online program about a week ago took my test this past Saturday and found out I passed on my 1st try tonight!! Can I just say I keep driving into my bed and screaming into my pillow that I passed over and over again!!!!! Needless to say I am beyond elevated. Listen guys all I can say is take this course and I mean dont even hesitate! You will never find any course better than the one from mca trust me I should know because I bought two others including aapc and they were worthless but Mrs Ortega teaches with her soul in this course and you feel it through the screen every minute ... Please do not try to go to college or by any other courses because you don't need anything but what Mrs Ortega has to teach you in this online course I'm trying my best here to keep you off on making terrible mistakes OK well I've said my piece I've gotta go best of luck to you all!
I got the online program on Monday after finding out MCA finally went online! I am waiting on my exam prep kit in the mail but I was given immediate access to the online training videos! I had a ton of things to do on Monday but I went ahead and watched the first video just to get myself motivated before running out of the house to do all my errands. The next thing I know today is day 3 and I still haven't left the house to run my errands because I've been binge watching ever since! Mrs Ortega steals your heart from the very beginning! She's serious and tough one minute then gets playful and fun the next. She'll get after you and call you out on something but then she totally gets away with it because you know she has your best interest at heart. I felt a duty to report on this program because I have a double master's degree and I have never witnessed a teacher like her. My years of college were 100 percent in the classroom and none of my professors had her energy and fire. But the shocking thing is that all this passion just keeps slapping you in the face and you're not even in the classroom with her! How does she make all of this come across in a video???!!! Its an online program yet she still commands your attention but and keeps it too. Its wild! Thank you teacher and thank you MCA. I only wish you would have gone online 3 years ago because I have ordered 3 different online programs including the one from aapc and MCA puts every last one of them to shame. I just finished the integumentary system and I went from hating that subject to loving it! I'll try my best to keep you all posted!September 17thI just want to scream to the world right now that I passed my board exam on the first try after completing MCA's on line program!!!! Evem though I took a class before mca I found out i really didn't have an idea about coding ...the other program was too focused on teaching things that didnt matter but after giving myself a do or die deadline with mca online, I finished the entire course in 2.5 months! I took the program extremely seriously and learned everything Mrs Ortega had to teach me because quite honestly she is a hell of a teacher the...the lady has a gift.......I never once had to submit a question to them...It was unreal....i am just did grateful to mca and can't wait to land my first job...look out world here I come 🙂
Oh my God! I've never been able to afford to travel to take MrsOrtegas 3 day class but then i saw she took her course on line! I bought it 5 days ago and I'm beyond hooked!! I was one of the unfortunate people who got talked into the aapc online course last year and it was a total nightmare...confusing and highly frustrating!!! But in taking the MCA online course, I'm just so thrilled!!! i broke into tears just watching the very first video because I already knew I had done the right thing. I was immediately addicted! When I say theres something real special about Mrs Ortega I mean it tenfold!!! You can see right away in her passionate way of teaching that this is no job to her but her purpose...her calling!! Her way of simplifying all of the difficult guidelines are are unreal. I have watched so many educators on YouTube but nooone holds a candle to this woman...nobody!!! Not only are you "sucked in" to her teachings but she is so inspiring along the way and when you least expect it she makes you fall off your chair laughing!!! Shes just amazing to watch and her voice is heavenly! She basically does all the hard work for you and spoon feeds us. Indeed this lady truly is the Mother of Coders. Thank you for being a one of kind teacher ..this industry needed you and we are all blessed through you. I will be posting as I get further into the course.P.s. the Take home test prep kit is head over heals genius! Everything you will possibly need besides the online teachings are contained in the kit. I literally threw away every other study guide I ever had...I'm just in shock over this second to none online experience theres no other word for it.
I just attended Mrs. Ortega’s 3-day coding boot camp class this past weekend and I must say it was worth it!!! She is talented, smart, blessed and highly favored! I learned so much this past weekend and everything made more sense after she taught it. She gives you everything you need and holds nothing back. She makes it so simple and gives you the confidence you need to pass the exam. She is truly a gem and I love that she loves God and shows it! She is truly passionate about her students and about medical coding. She is the Queen of Medical Coding!!! I advise everyone to take her course because you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for sharing your gifts with us. It was truly an honor to meet you and be taught by you! 🙂
I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy to anyone who wants to become a REAL medical coding professional and deeply understand coding in the REAL world. Medical Coding Course with Mrs. Ortega in Atlanta was an awesome experience that literally changed my life! Mrs. Ortega is an amazing and gifted teacher with extremely high professional and ethical standards. She made the most difficult topics clear and easy for understanding. I feel that it was the best investment in my future career and I am excited to continue education with Medical Coding Academy. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for your wonderful teaching style and dedication!!
I took the 3 Day course this past weekend and my mind was blown. Mrs. Ortega breaks the test down for you into the best course for someone who has no experience. I have been researching the courses for years, and this is the best. I would recommend this course for anyone. Thanks MCA and Mrs. Ortega you rock and I'm a rockstar!!!!!!!
Melanie Fretwell Thompson
Just finished up the 3 day CPT in Atlanta and wow what an experience! Mrs. Ortega knows her stuff and is passionate about her mission of leading people to a better career. Her Faith In God was evident in the class as well and that spoke volumes to me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and equipping me with the skills I need to be successful in coding.
Norma Jean Creak
I attended Mrs. Ortega's class. This is a whole new carreer objective for me and I was terrified. From the time I entered the class untill I passed my course, and after, I have felt that my success was the highest priority. The caring staff at the academy from the initial phone call to the completion of the class could not have been any more through and professional. I have had 30 plus years in management and a staff like this is what makes any company a success. I want to Thank Ms. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy for making this whole process painless and I look forward to taking my next class with them. If you ate looking to make a change with nothing but a positive experience I completely recommend Medical Coding Academy and Ms. Ortega.
I took this course and I must say if you want to learn coding take this 3 day course. Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing the class is intense but you will learn what you need to and to keep it moving!
I learned so much in boot camp. I have told everyone and anyone I know who is trying to figure out their next step to take this course.
Mrs. Ortega is awesome!! I took the 3 day course in Dallas in May and I took my exam a week ago and I PASSED!!!! The class is not a joke, she is tough but if you put in the time you will pass!! I am already looking into taking another course by her!!!
I was hesitant to take this course but am so dang happy I did! Went to the Dallas class mid-May and it was amazing. I have an extensive Ophthalmic background, with a small amount of coding knowledge, but nothing like what I learned. 3 days packed full of learning from Miss Ortega, who is a fountain of information. Long days and nights to ensure you have all you need to pass your test and start a new career. If you don’t want to work hard for 3 days I would suggest taking a college course for 18 months instead. I took my test on June 1st and PASSED!!!!!!! Now working on my resume and the rest of my workbook that we were given. A humongous thanks to Miss Ortega and the crew. I couldn’t have done it without you❣️❣️
I took the 3day Medical Coding Course with Mrs. Ortega and it was a great learning experience, it is a lot of work but it is worth it. I received today the results of my AAPC test and I PASSED!!! on my first try!!! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for being such an amazing teacher!!!
Kenya MsThang Davis
No Medical Experience I recently attended MCA’s 3-day Pre-Exam Medical Coding workshop with my husband (5/17-5/19) .... and let me tell you, Mrs. Ortega is like NO OTHER!! She takes her love of teaching very seriously and puts her ALL into her students. She applies the pressure to ensure you’re prepared for the exam and a successful coding career. She’s very thorough giving you the tools you need to pass the exam, getting the job, interviewing, and your new coding career. During the prep exam workshop she is not the angel you see on youtube. She is this little petite Drill Sergeant who will put the fire under your feet!! The class is very intense, very fast paced, and can be overwhelming if you don’t do ALL of your pre-work. However when the 3 days are over its a big relief because you will be able maneuver through your books, follow instructions, find and understand the correct answers. Her curriculum and teaching strategy makes it fun & easy to find the codes, without needing to MEMORIZE thousands of terminology or anatomy terms. Mrs Ortega was heaven sent! If you’re looking for a teacher to teach you the basics of coding and how to pass the CPC medical coding exam with ZERO coding experience... Then Look no further Mrs. Ortega and her team are IT!! Me & the hubby are scheduled to take the AAPC exam May 25th... I’ll be back to let y’all know we passed!!!! -**** UPDATE WE PASSED****Thank you again Mrs. Ortega and Staff! May god continue to bless and protect you from the naysayers. Your energy and heart is so pure. Continue to stay on your path blessing the world with your knowledge. The world will eventually catch on! “Keep It Moving”

Just finished the 3-day Medical Coding course with Mrs. Ortega May 17-19 and her teaching is phenomenal! I've taken two other coding courses over the years and got nothing close to what she had to offer. Her teaching was great, her staff was wonderful and I left filled so much knowledge and confidence! Her exactly what I needed!post edit: I found out Friday July 19, 2019 that I passed my CPC exam!!!! I couldnt have done it without Mrs. Ortega's 3-day course!!

A Power House Teacher!!! Thanks to Mrs. Ortega and the 3 day course I am Eager to take the exam and this time I am so confident about it- I couldn’t say that before. She has so much knowledge and cares for her students. The pre-work and after class homework totally worth the time and effort. I am that person that earned the 2 year Associates Medical Billing and Coding Degree/ Summa Cum Laude. Took the board exam twice and failed. Through the university I learned countless office and AHIMA’s policies but no coding or exam prep. I am still paying the school’s debt and no medical billing and coding certifications yet. I wish I had known of MCA’s courses and save me time and money. I can’t wait to test and post an update. A big shout out to the MCA team as well Mrs. Landers, Mrs. Underwood, Mrs. Newbbie and Mrs. Belen were all so kind and helpful.
Everyone who wants to learn coding from the gound up should do this 3 day class!!!I just took the class this pass weekend and it was a life changing moment for me. Mrs. Ortega is the best teacher!!! Now the 3 day course is intense but so well worth it at the end!!! I cannot wait to pass my test on the first try and keep it moving to gain my alphabet soup behind my name!!! Thanks to the whole entire staff at MCA!!! Update: I passed my test on the first try!!!!!
My wife and I recently took the MCA, CPC 3 day course in Dallas. We traveled all the way from Atlanta to attend this phenomenal event. When I tell you that this was one of the best investments of our money and time, I am not exaggerating!! Mrs. Ortega and her wonderful team of Belen, Angelica, Ladonna and Susan were beyond great. Words cannot express the feeling we have for them. I will not lie, the 3 days are challenging but so worth it! I am more than confident that my wife and I are overly prepared to take the CPC that we are scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, and we will pass it the first time!!! The energy of the class and the staff is so loving and helpful and inspiring. It’s like the family you didn’t know you had. If you are new in the industry or struggling to pass your CPC certification, YOU NEED TO BE HERE! You will not regret it. I will definitely be back for my COC, CRC, CPMA and the rest of the “alphabet soup”.Keep it moving!!!!
This class is a must for anyone wanting to be a medical coder. Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing!

Mrs. Ortega is Awesome! I have struggled with test taking in my past due to learning disabilities; however, her style of teaching made it easy for me to understand. Whatever you do, take the time and money to invest in YOURSELF and take the 3 day class. You will not be disappointed! She has a true passion for this industry and loves to see her students be successful. You will truly be blessed from learning from her and her team.Keep it Moving!

I just finished my three day boot camp for CPC and I know I’m ready for my board exam. I cant say enough about this school or Mrs. Ortega to show how much I appreciate the time and effort they put into teaching their students. I look forward to taking another coding course with them, and I already told my daughter she had to take the class when Mrs. Ortega was back in Georgia. Mrs. Ortega has been blessed with a gift that should NOT be taken for granted.
My name is Vontreal Daye and I took this class this weekend May 17th... I was so nervous about what to expect. Nervous about if I would learn anything, but more than anything else nervous about if it was a fraud!!! The teacher Mrs. Ortega is AMAZING AND EXCELLENT AT WHAT SHE DOES! I am so excited about this board exam and passing it. Because I will on June 1, 2019. I want to say thank you so much for your teaching and your wonderful spirit Mrs. Ortega! This weekend was hard, but so worth it!
Mrs Ortega is a walking encyclopedia of medical coding knowledge. I attended her 3 day course in Orlando and it was intense. For the record I had no prior knowledge of this field. However after Mrs Ortega's class I feel I have a fighting chance of passing my CPC certification exam. Trust me the 3 day course is your best option. Mrs Ortega's teaching system is so on point it seems like she's pouring the information into your brain. you just need to pay attention and take notes. She really feels like your success is her success. Remember to complete your prework.
great money great money great money
I researched many different programs since I do not have any experience or know anyone currently in this field. I chose the 3 day course with Mrs. Ortega and after completing the course I feel very confident in what I have learned. I appreciated her teaching style and willingness to help everyone. I have been raising kids for the last 19 years and have not been in a learning environment for many, many years so I was not very confident in my abilities to be able to absorb so much information in a short time but decided on day 2 to go ahead and sign up for the exam in 3 weeks because it was all clicking and making sense. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for your time, patience and caring for your students. Update 4/29/2019 - Passed my CPC exam
I did the 3 day course in Orlando this past weekend and it was life changing. I have had the goal of wanting to be coder for 2 years and currently in the medical field. I have tried classes with the AAPC and that didn't work. Then I did a class online with Penn Foster. It wasn't teaching me what I needed to know. As single mom I was desperate for change and even having experience in the medical field I wanted and need more. I came across a comment in facebook Group from the AAPC how this lady went to MCA. And she accomplished 3 credentials in 6 months. I was like no way. I read Mrs. Oretega reviews and watched her Youtube videos. All of them. I was like there is not one bad comment. I jump out in faith paid for class pack my bags and got to the next class. Which was Orlando Florida on 04/26/19. Mrs. Oretega is the most passionate teacher I have ever met in my entire life being 33 years old. She is straight to the point and she pushed me. She taught me discipline which is hard to do being a single mother and living everyday life. Words can't express how much I am grateful for the 3 day course. I couldn't have made a better sacrifice for my family and I. I know I will pass my CPC exam. This review is not even enough to express my experience. I pray you choose MCA and keep it moving to success. Thank you so much Mrs. Oretega and I pray God gives you what you gave me and more.
Mrs Ortega is the real deal... For the last couple of months I have been wanting to change my career. I always knew I wanted to do medical coding but didn’t want to spent all this money and all these months going to school when life is just so busy already . I did a lot of research on different schools in my area and even online classes but I kept getting disappointed with what I was seeing .. So one night, literally one week before Mrs Ortega was to held her 3 day course in Orlando I stumbled upon her program. After reading all the wonderful reviews and seeing her YouTube videos something inside of me told me to go for it and sign up! And boy I’m so glad I listened.. Mrs Ortega teaches with passion , she puts her whole heart into what she does... She lights a fire in you to go after the alphabet soup and have more credentials to your name.. Mrs Ortega is a leader , a strong women , your biggest cheerleader and your teacher ... Trust me you are going to be a believer the minute you meet her.
Phenominal course and instructor. Full of knowledge and insight, an excellent course and experience.
Mrs. Ortega is so sweet and kind! She truly cares about every one of her students. If you do your pre-work, you will do great in class! No doubt this is hard work but so worth it to invest in your future!!! Don’t look any further if you’re looking for your certs. MCA is the way to go ❤️
Mrs Ortega is THE MOST AMAZING instructor I have ever had the opportunity to learn from both personally and professionally 😊😊Her approach to a very challenging subject is SPOT ON!!Worth EVERY MINUTE & DOLLAR INVESTED IN MY FUTURE!!Thank you just doesn't seem enough. Blessings to her in all of her endeavours.
I just passed my CPC test on my first try and I couldn’t have done it without Ms. Ortega. I debated for a long time and I can say I don’t regret my decision at all. I was promised that through this 3-day course I will pass my CPC test and that is exactly what I got. The course is not a joke, it takes a lot of determination with less sleep. Ms. Ortega is compassionate and such a beautiful human being, but she can also be a beast in this 3-day course. She will do what it takes for you to pass that test. I will truly treasure the experience I had during this course, and the love that was given to me by Ms. Ortega. Take a leap of faith and you’ll soar through the test!
I took this class March 28-30 & my experience was Amazing. I didnt know anything about coding before I took this class & I passed on my first try. You're in great hands. Mrs.Ortega will teach you everything you need to know plus more. Just trust the process.
Ana Carolina Cabral Guillen
I took Ms. Ortega's 3-day Boot Camp mid-March in Dallas because I'd heard great things about it and of course, I was eager to pass my CPC exam on my first try. Well, let me tell you... the course is a real Boot Camp!! It's very intense and you really have to work hard, sleep very little and pay attention to everything Ms. Ortega says... in the end, you'll feel tired, but it will all be worth it!! I took my test last Saturday and today I got the awesome news that I passed the test on my first try with a score of 87%!!! I'm sure that without Ms. Ortega's teachings, I would've gotten lost in all the confusing terminology, double and triple guessing myself after each answer and would've never finished the test!! We all know some cases can be extremely confusing, but with Ms. Ortega's strategies, you'll be able to abstract the most important information and answer fast and accurately in order to "keep it going" and finish the test with enough correct answers to pass on your first try!! I had no previous coding experience and I just did!! Thank you, Ms. Ortega!! I sure hope to come back for more of your teachings to obtain more certifications!
It took me a while to do this because I wanted this review to be as complete as possible. I took my 3 day course in Dallas March 15-17 and it was such a great experience but it was definitely a time consuming process and a lot of information. I come from a different perspective because I never doubted this program or its intentions. I have learned to follow my instincts and I am truly happy I didn’t second guess this one because I took my exam 3 weeks after taking the course and I passed ON THE FIRST TRY and I got a 90%!!!! With so many positive reviews of this program I will put it out there that you get out of life what you put into it so don’t approach this program or the wonderful people behind it with negativity and expect to get a positive result🙏🏼you are only as blessed as you allow yourself to be and this program will definitely have you counting those blessings once you pass that exam! Peace and love ☺️

I attended her 3-day course and Mrs. Ortega has an undeniable passion to deliver and execute the information needed to ensure you pass your boards. I have spoken to a couple attendees from my class who have taken their CPC exam already and have stated that her strategies and tips WORK!! This 3-day course is brutal, starting with the pre-work all the way to the end of the 3rd day. How bad do YOU want it? You will get out of this as much as you put forth. If you are "IN", so is Mrs. Ortega! Utilize her wealth of knowledge to the fullest and LISTEN to what she teaches. She's a "tough cookie" but you have to be in order to deliver the amount of information taught in this course. She goes go out of her way to ensure everyone understands the concepts. I cannot WAIT to take my exam Saturday with a passing grade the FIRST time! 😉
Listen! Mrs. Ortega will light a fire in you and keep it burning! I've never been so motivated and excited to code after having taken the course with her. You feel pumped and ready to take it to the next level. I was ready to enroll in the next credentialing course as soon as I finished CPC with her. She knows this stuff and genuinely cares for her students. I like her spirit and her overall approach. Don't enroll if you're here to joke around....wrong class!! I can't stop talking about how great she is. She gives you what you need plus more. God has truly blessed her and she is being a blessing to her students. If you had ever considered enrolling for coding....this is it! Thank you Mrs. Ortega!
The best highlight is the Teacher, Mrs. Ortegashe is full of energy and she knows Coding!! So if you need help to pass your coding exams or understanding the guidelines this is where to go. Mrs. Ortega offers a 3 day course and it is intense but I have a better understanding and knowledge of what I need to pass my test and keep going up the ladder to complete other Certifications!!So to all Medical Coders Medical Coding Academy is the place to go!!
There are no words to describe this class other than AMAZING! I left with a renewed spirit and not only the confidence that I can pass this exam and will on the first try, but that I have truly taken the first steps in altering my life for the better. Mrs Ortega has such a humble & sweet spirit and really gives her all in these 3 days. The course was tough, you’re definitely pushed and challenged, but it’s well worth it in the end. I wasn’t sure what to expect but Mrs. Ortega will have you leaving on that 3rd day feeling well prepared. I can tell that all she does is truly out of LOVE! You can tell she loves what she does, loves to serve others & is truly gifted and anointed! I’m already looking forward to completely the next credential course with her. I would highly recommend (and already have to some family members) to take this course it truly is life changing!
If you’re interested in becoming a coder, see Mrs.Ortega. In the beginning, I was just like the rest of you who’s reading this. My thoughts were ‘this can’t be real, there’s no way you can become a coder from taking a class in 3 days & knowing anything you were taught’. I mean to go from having community colleges have a requirement of you taking 6-8 weeks worth of courses to become a coder to an academy that’s just 3 days, it’s inevitable to think you can’t become a coder within 3 days. Well guess what?! Mrs Ortega proved myself & the 40+ others that took the 3 day class with me in ATL wrong. She’s such an amazing person and teacher. She’s literally dedicated to her students. If we didn’t understand something, she went over it until we did; & if you were just one of the ones who still just couldn’t understand it, she took the time to give you one on one time to make sure you understood. Due to the current situation of not being able to take the test the next day after, you have to schedule them 1,2, or 3 weeks from the class dates or whenever AACP have test dates available, but please do not fret, you leave her class very well prepared with studying assignments to keep everything fresh. Get out of that space of fear people & see Mrs Ortega, I promise that you will not regret it. Best teacher I’ve had in awhile. Thank you Mrs Ortega, I wish you the absolute best & nothing but elevation for YOU & your COMPANY. I see nothing but good coming your way. XOXO. Raychelle 🙂
Awesome Class! I took this class over the weekend in Atlanta, and it was by far one of my best decisions ever. Even though the class was intense, it was filled with knowledge and life lessons. I must say Mrs.Ortega over exceeded my expectations and I'm very confident that I will pass my test. Thanks again
anyone interested in coding should absolutely attend MCA..the time spent was very well worth it. So excited about what I've learned I can't wait to take the CPC in 2 weeks and I'm absolutely sure I will pass after allowing Mrs Ortega to teach me everything she knows about coding. Mrs Ortega is very caring about her students she takes time to make sure everyone understands all things coding. Yes without a doubt she is the best. Love me some Mrs Ortega ❤️😁
I attended the 3 day course in Atlanta ga over the weekend and I learned more in the 3 days than at the college I went to for medical coding.Ms Ortega is really a blessing and I will see her in Dallas for my next certification!❤️❤️
I just completed the 3 day course today and I highly recommend this course I’m still excited because Mrs. Ortega is amazing she is truly a gift from God I promise you won’t regret taking this course from her she honestly has an amazing gift so I’m going to definitely spread the word I’m so thankful for your time and sacrifice Mrs. Ortega keep following God’s word and I will surely see you again soon for more credentials 🤗 again thanks
Mrs Ortega prepares all her students. She is determined to HELP everyone better themselves. You will definitely be ready for the coding test.
Mrs. Ortega is the bomb!!!!! I can not believe how much her teaching as helped me!! I was skeptical coming into the class but after the 3 day boot camp I feel confident about the test. Mrs. Ortega is an enthusiastic and compassionate teacher. She cares deeply that her students pass the test and have the opportunity for a career in medical coding. If you are on the fence about wether or not to take this class, just do it!!! You will not regret it!!! Thank you Mrs.Ortega!!!Update 5-1-19: I passed on the first try!!! 84%!!!This class is awesome!!!!!
Melissa Felipe Galima
What an experience the 3 day CPC course was! We learned so much in such a short amount of time and it was all thanks to Mrs. Ortega! She is a dedicated teacher that genuinely cares about her students, which was obvious from the moment we stepped in the door. I can’t say enough about her awesome teaching skills. I’m so thankful for her and MCA for opening the doors to a new and rewarding career!
Hearing real life stories of people that where able to accomplish passing the CPC exam on the 1st try with no prior experience or knowledge as a coder. I made me a believer..Teacher and Staff are patient and will take the time to make sure you understand
My wife took Mrs Ortega’s 3 day CPC over the weekend. She does not have Facebook but insisted on leaving a review- She can’t stop talking about how much she learned and how it was such a positive experience. The whole staff at Medical Coding Academy was outstanding, they truly care about your progress and succeeding in the industry. If you try anything, go for Mrs Ortega! You will NOT be disappointed- be ready to learn!Update- she passed her test the first time with an 87!!!
Great class! Great Teacher! I am ready for my exam and ready to begin my new career!! Thank you Medical Coding Academy!!
Medical Coding Academy is the place to go in your looking to get into the medical field!!
Belen Ortega Ortiz
If you are looking for a change in the medical field, you should try coding! Ms. Ortega makes it interesting and fun. A true leader with lots of experience and passion. Best wishes Mrs. Ortega and congratulations with your business!

Mrs. Ortega is a phenomenal and passionate about sharing her knowledge . You will not go wrong attending her 3. day course it's a wise investment. I walked away confident and knowledgeable from her course . I highly recommend medical coding academy!!
This is the best money I have even spent!The 3 day CPC course is great! it's a lot of work , but we'll worth it; you leave on Sunday and you feel so good about all the knowledge you have gained. Oh yeah, and if you have watched any of the videos on you tube Mrs Ortega is just like what you see, she is Real! She cares for you and wants you to do well you can feel her passion. And Best of all she is God fearing!gotta love it. ❤
I was soooo nervous about getting through this course, I am an older lady and didnt think I would be able to keep up.it was a huge challenge for me but with the wonderful people they have there to help, I was able to keep up.Mrs. Ortega, you are a wonderful testimony for Christ. Thank you for sharing you stories and your belief, thank you, for your giving heart.I will pray for you and your academy, thatyou will persevere with your future challenges. Ms. A Martinez, I thank you for all the extra time you spent with me. Hope to see you both again soon.Kristen
Mrs. Ortega and her team are uh-mazing! I had many reservations when it came to taking a class with Medical Coding Academy but after my first 3-Day CPC class, I am happy I took the challenge. It is A LOT of work over the three days but worth it. I feel incredibly prepared for my board exam and for "real world" coding. I most definitely would not pass without MCA and I look forward to CRUSHING my test in a few weeks! I will be back MCA, see you next time.
I highly recommend taking this class!!! Ms. Ortega was great ( as well as the staff) & very passionate about coding! She breaks everything down in a way to help you better understand coding. I definitely feel more confident about getting my certification! 😊👍🏾👍🏾
Cecilia Robledo Mendoza
Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing!! I highly recommend this course. After the 3 day course I feel very confident that i can pass the test.
Thank you Mrs Ortega and the entire MCA staff. You all have been truly amazing. Mrs Ortega breaks down coding in a way anyone can understand. I’m not gonna lie... the 3 day class was very intense and included lots of work. But now that I have completed the course, I feel confident and excited to get into the coding world. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication Mrs Ortega. Thanks again, and I will be seeing you in the near future for additional classes.
The training course with Mrs Ortega was amazing!!! She is a wonderful, caring teacher with such a big heart. I learned so much and confident I will pass my test. She will not leave your side even after you leave her class... I recommend anyone who wants to get their certification to make the sacrifice and sign up.

I just finished her 3 day course here in CA. It was intense. You definitely learn a lot in a short time, which is perfect for me and my work schedule. Ms Ortega is professional and is genuinely concerned about you succeeding on the exam and your career. I highly recommend her course if you want to save time and money. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner!
Mrs. Ortega is truly a blessing and a Godsend and we need more people like her in this world. I am so thankful to have her preparing me for the CPC Board Exam. There is NO WAY I AM NOT PASSING this test. So many people out there think they know everything and have all the answers. Be humble for once in your life. Stop wasting your time and take the 3-day course with Mrs. Ortega and see what the other thousands of students have been raving about. She is no joke. Do you want a job now or a job in a year? Do you want to take your Board Exam on the 4th day after the 3-day course or 4 weeks later? I would definitely recommend the 4th day. Please take advantage of the beautiful, remarkable, smart, and humble lady while she still has the ability to show the world what she knows. See you real soon in Dallas MCA.
I would give it 10 stars ⭐️ Extremely professional! If your looking for a course, look no further.

WE WILL PASS!!! THANK YOU MS. ORTEGA!

I am absolutely going to take her advice and do everything that she taught me in the 3 day CPC course and I have no doubt that I will pass my exam in 3 weeks.Because of her I have decided to get at least 3 more certifications to better mine and my family’s lives and she is the only person I will allow to teach me because I know that with her instruction, I WILL PASS!

Looking for new opportunities try this out……
The 3-Day Boot Camp in Dallas, Texas, was AMAZING!!! I cannot stress ENOUGH what an intense, emotional, blood-pumping, REWARDING experience it was to be blessed with the opportunity of attending. I barely know where to BEGIN!I feel it is an understatement to say that Mrs. Ortega is an AMAZING teacher and a BLESSING to the world!!! Her honesty, passion, heart, soul, drive, and SKILL are all so POWERFUL from the very MOMENT you're in her presence, and lasts for the entirety of the course and WELL BEYOND! Mrs. Ortega is a HIGHLY motivational FIRECRACKER, and will ALWAYS push you to do your best and remember the UNLIMITED potential for success YOU already possess inside!! YOU can accomplish more than you ever imagined, and with NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE required!!! If by this point in my review you're STILL having doubts on whether you should attend, whether or not you "REALLY can do this," then this is my advice to YOU: Follow ALL of Mrs. Ortega's instructions from the MOMENT you step into class. DON'T ask why, DON'T complain, DON'T stomp your feet, DON'T clench your fists tight and rage -- NOT even in your HEAD! I know this may be "easier said than done" for some people, but I PROMISE you, if you just do EVERYTHING she says, you are GUARANTEED to pass the AAPC exam ON YOUR FIRST TRY! YOU WILL! It's just GUARANTEED! Also, I would like to respectfully ask you to grab the nearest Mr. Clean Magic Eraser RIGHT NOW and ERASE the word "CAN'T" from your vocabulary ENTIRELY!!! By telling yourself that something is "IMPOSSIBLE," you're only hurting YOURSELF!!! Do NOT limit yourself like this!!!! If you go into this class with the words "I CAN DO ANYTHING" in BIG bright multi-colored neon lights on a BILLBOARD inside your brain, you WILL make things happen that you NEVER THOUGHT YOU COULD MAKE HAPPEN! I could go ON AND ON (and ON) about how much of an absolute BENEFIT TO YOUR LIFE it would be to JUST give Medical Coding Academy a CHANCE, but you would be reading FOR DAYS! Just TRUST ME ON THIS: DO IT!!!! Mrs. Ortega and the rest of the OUTSTANDING Medical Coding Academy staff will NOT let you down.
Passed my Exam! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for the vital information you have given us! I will definitely be taking the next course I know it will be worth it!
Nicole Stewart Smith
This class was truly intense, but very much worth it! Ms. Ortega is sincerely passionate about helping students pass the exam so a packet is sent to you before the class to help prepare you for this intense 3 day boot camp. Now I have to admit that I did not pass my exam on the 1st try and even thought about giving up. I had a lot going on personally, and this may have played a factor in my not passing...not sure. However, Ms. Ortega began to text and check on me and continued to encourage me. I scheduled my retake exam and went back to review my notes and had to forget about the initial fail. So the second go around, I passed!! I am now making plans to take a second class with Medical Coding Academy because I believe they can truly help me get to where I want to be in this field. Thank you Ms. Ortega for being who you are and caring!
I am so grateful that I was able to attend Mrs. Ortega’s 3 day class and pass my exam. She is such a blessing in so many ways and helping change people’s lives. The staff was amazing as well the 3 day are long but make sure you do what Mrs. Ortega of you and keep it moving.Thank you again Mrs.Ortega
Mrs. Ortega is wonderful person with amazing coding knowledge of skills.I took her CPC course last weekend in Dallas,I passed 1st try on the 4th day.i didn’t have any medical background.This test is really hard 150 question with 5hr 40min time .Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us❤️
If you are serious about passing your CPC Exam I recommend Medical Coding Academy. Check out my testimonial. fhttps://goo.gl/maps/89N327fHATM2
The 3 day CPC exam prep course was intense, informative and oh so helpful! I learned so much in 3 days and this course made it possible for me to reach my goal! Yes, I passed the exam on my first try!!! I’m super happy! It’s only the beginning as I plan to take more courses with her in the future! I will be forever grateful to my instructor, Mrs Ortega and her staff. Very professional and motivating!
I signed up for this class not having any medical coding knowledge or experience. The class was amazing and Mrs. Ortega is an excellent teacher and motivational speaker! I can't believe how much I learned and how equipped I was to pass the state exam.
First I would like to thank God for blessing us with a beautiful soul, Mrs. Ortega!! My friend had taken her 3 day course in 2017 and passed boards on the 1st try. I had taken a TJC coding course and failed by 10 pts on the first try😑 BUT. I decided to give the 3 day boot camp a try Dec 7-9, 2018 and I PASSED my boards Dec 10,2018 🎉😆 I am truly grateful ❤️ You will NOT regret taking Mrs. Ortega 3 day boot camp course!! Just give it a try🥰
Amanda Joy Mcqueen Leibovitz
This past Monday was my 7th attempt at the national AAPC CPC exam. Instead of giving up after the first 6 tries I gave Medical Coding Acedemy a chance. I did the 3 day boot camp and took the test on the 4th day and PASSED with an 87! Yet the best part is before the bootcamp I only knew coding in part but after Mrs. Ortega's class I could see it as a whole picture! I FEEL SO BLESSED to have found this bootcamp and firmly believe I would not have passed without it
I passed! 🙂 All thanks to your program and excellent teaching! All of your assistants were amazing and everyone was so nice and helpful. I have already referred two of my friends to you and many more are about to follow. I will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen. Thank you so much. I am definitely a skeptic turned in to a believer. I really needed good news this week. I was worried during the test that my mind would get in my way. My grandmother was sick during this time. She passed away on the 12th. I got to see her that morning. She passed away that night. I beat myself up the entire weekend wondering if I was doing the right thing, but my grandmother would have wanted me to go. That is just the type of person she is. She was 90. She had a full life. I hate that I can't tell her in person I passed because she knew how hard I had worked all year to pass this test, but I am hoping she knows. 🙂 This program is what I needed to pass. I only wish I would have done it sooner! If I knew about it before I can only imagine how many certifications I would have by now thanks to this program and your excellent teaching style. It is very rare to meet someone like you who knows how to break down concepts like these for people to understand easily and to have passion about people the way you do! You are exactly what this world needs more of and I hope you continue to spread your knowledge and your caring heart with many more! Thank you, thank you for everything! I definitely want more certifications, but I have to figure out how to pay for them first. A work in progress I am, but thanks to you and your team I am one step closer...... 🙂
Great Experience!! Passed with 94% Mrs. Ortega is Awesome!! I can't say enough about her teaching skills and dedication to her students is amazing. If you are on the fence, stop thinking about it and INVEST in yourself, do EXACTLY what Mrs. Ortega says and you will pass also. God Bless You.
I'm Paul Farley andI'm a career changer. A few years ago, I was teaching and I broke my left femur and after that, I had to find something else. In researching medical coding, I came across Ms. Ortega's YouTube channel. God put her in my pathway. Of that I am sure! Ms. Ortega is exactly the same in person as she is on YouTube. She is passionate about what she does, she is un-matched as far as subject matter knowledge goes, and her enthusiasm shines through. A word of warning: It is a very intense three day boot camp. When she talks about that in her videos, that is no joke!. However, you will be amazed at how much you learn and retain through it all. Her methods for navigating the CPC exam WORK! I promise you they do! Ms. Ortega always says in her videos that she's a text away. She is absolutely telling you the truth. I have to confess, I didn't pass my CPC on the first attempt. I didn't manage my time well enough. However, as soon as I let her know that I didn't make it on the first try, she was on the case. She helped me with extra practice cases, with advice, and with a patience and kindness. Today, I got a wonderful Christmas present when I found out I had passed the CPC. It truly is a beast! As a teacher myself, I here want to say that Ms. Ortega has in a full measure the most important quality a teacher has to have and that is she has a true servant heart. One last thing. If the cost is causing you to doubt whether you should do this or not; if the need to possibly travel to Dallas or to a city near you; if timed tests make you nervous like they do me, do not listen to the doubts. Do what it takes to get signed up for the three-day course. You'll never be sorry you did. And please do the pre-work before you show up for class. You'll be very glad you did.
I took the 3 day Medical Coding course in Mesquite, TX, this past weekend and it was Awesome! Mrs. Ortega and her staff were amazing! If anyone is looking for a career change to medical coding, I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy. A big THANK YOU to Mrs. Ortega and her staff!!!
What an AMAZING 3 day course!!! Loved it! Mrs. Ortega is a very passionate woman who wants to see every one of her students succeed! She goes above and beyond! I learned more in this class then the entire time I was in college! I took the test on the 4th day so waiting for the results. I have to say thought, all that work from the class was sooo worth it!!
I took the 3-day coding course this past weekend and Miss Ortega was awesome...I will recommend her entire course to others...
My sister and I completed this training last weekend in Mesquite. I have a Master's Degree in Education and she is a RN. We both agree that it was the most intensive training session that we have ever attended. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! Mrs. Ortega is committed to seeing her students succeed in their testing. She clearly and concisely breaks down the extensive amount of information. Her energy and knowledge is remarkable. If in the future, we seek further training it will be with Mrs. Ortega.
Holly WitherowI recently invested in a three-day course at the Medical Coding Academy to take the CPC exam. The course offered a no non-sense approach of systematically approaching the CPC exam. The presentation delivers information that allows you to feel more confident in taking the exam. The instructor also linked CPT, ICD-10CM, and HCPCS in a cohesive format to better prepare your approach in taking the exam since time is of the essence and there is a lot to read.In the past, I have had many questions about medical coding and each training day resolved many of my past questions. The organization cares about your test outcome and your personal, professional success.The three days are intense but worth your time. Not only do I recommend everyone to take this course but if you really want to be certified DO NOT THINK TWICE. You will be glad you did it.By the way, I did not get pay for my opinion, nor am I related to anyone in the organization. I am just a student who took the course and wish somebody would have told me about Medical Coding Academy sooner.
This was the best decision I ever made after taking a 10 month online course I learned more in 3 days than i ever did online its incredible! I took the test on the 4th day and I felt so confident thanks Mrs.Ortega your the best!!
Lucille Julia Impastato
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Ms. Ortega and the medical coding academy! I never thought I would be able to fully comprehend medical coding and exceed in my career ... but it is because of her and this academy that has completely changed my life! I cannot thank you enough for such a humble, amazing experience ! It was worth every penny!
What an awesome class!!!!! Very thankful to Mrs. Ortega and the TA's for all of their help. Keep movin on!!!! 😊😁😀😉
I have to say that Mrs. Ortega and her entire team made this journey from New York worth it. Her love for God is captivating and it reminds me of why I love God so much. She is not only a life changer but I solely believe that she is a God sent world changer. The entire experience was priceless. I attended the three day boot camp for my CPC and took the test today. I have to say that the Medical Coding Academy prepared me like no other. Yes it is intense but worth it. I am currently awaiting my results. I highly recommend anyone who want to pursue coding to take her. YOU WON"T REGRET IT!! (I still hear her voice in my head!!! She really cares) 😇😇😇🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Amy Shinpaugh Walker
update... I Did PASS!!! And with an 86 too!!! WOO HOO!!! First of all... I LOVE how Godly Mrs Ortega is!! She will blessed you beyond measure!! She definitely has a gift! Ok so I’ve taken the CPC test in the past and just couldn’t pass it!! But after the 3 day workshop with Mrs Ortega this weekend, I KNOW I passed it this time!! And I don’t just know I passed it, I’m pretty sure I aced it!! Yay!! Words can’t describe how awesome this lady is!! Listen to what she says, then do what she says and you’ll have those three letters behind your name in no time! She gives you the tools you need to succeed and She loves her students and wants the very best for them. DONT be like my past self and think you can eventually pass it on your own!! You get yourself signed up for Mrs Ortega’s COC class!! Thank you SO very much, Mrs Ortega!! Couldn’t have done it without you!! 🙌🎉❤️
This class was amazing!!! I signed up for an online class in 2016 and never felt confident enough to take the exam. And after three very long days, I have no qualms. I wish I would have known about this program sooner. I stepped out on faith and signed up maybe 5 days before the course began I do not recommend this there is a lot of pre-work get all of this done before. I’m so excited to now take my exam. I love her love, for God and how she’s not afraid to show it. Even if you aren’t religious it’s very digestible. I will be signing up for more classes for sure. Ms. Ortega genuinely loves what she does. I will only recommend this class from now on. Other online classes are a waste of your time and money. If you do not pass it is your own fault.
I’m so thankful for being introduced to MCA! The entire staff is amazing, kind, helpful, understanding and friendly. Mrs. Ortega is the real deal! I will be recommending MCA to others. I look forward to returning for more letters to add to my alphabet soup! This program is truly a blessing from God!!!!🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
Ronda P Reid
Wow! I just attended the 3 day boot camp! What a fantastic experience!! Not only did Mrs. Ortega do a wonderful job teaching but she knows her stuff and the industry. Please sign up for her course ASAP! Look at all of her YouTube videos. She does not sugar coat anything. I appreciated her zealous style, willingness to stop and explain and most of all her energy. Sign up now!!!
So let me start by saying I WAS SO SKEPTICAL but let me tell you, DON'T BE!!!! I attended the Dallas class Dec.7-9th and I take my test on Dec. 15th. I'm so impressed with MCA!!! I have no experience in medical coding but after this 3day weekend, I feel like a medical coder already!! I know I will pass this test on the 1st try! Take this class, you will not regret it!!!
Mrs. Ortega is a wonderful teacher. I feel like I learned more from the class than going to a junior college 2 years for coding. I failed the first time and found out about her class. I am more confidence in myself to take the test again! All of your staff were wonderful!!! Thank you again!
If you are considering a career in the Medical Coding field I highly suggest the MCA. Mrs. Ortiz is an amazing teacher. I was in the CPC class this past weekend in Dallas and I learned more in her class in the first day than I did in the two year program I just finished. If you choose the course make very certain you do all the necessary pre work and homework before class it is vital to your success in the class. It was long days but well worth it. I plan to go back for more classes. Thank you to Mrs. Ortega and the teachers assistants. I feel confident about taking my test on Saturday 15 Dec. Please pray for me!
This course was fabulous!! I walked in knowing absolutely nothing about medical coding and left feeling prepared for the real world and the board test. Ms.Ortega’s fun personality and way of teaching really made the weekend fly by. I will for sure be back for my next credentials!
Erica L Henderson
The only word I can say is UNBELIEVABLE! Mrs. Ortega’s class will change your WHOLE LIFE! Trust the process she has one and she shares it! You will see ATTACKING THE TEST SO DIFFERENT! Do yourself a favor TAKE HER 3 day class!
LaDonna Crist Aguilar
I was a skeptic too... resist the urge to listen to the whole “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. This IS the exception!! 3 days to a CPC it’s true! All of the staff and instructors at Medical Coding Academy have a heart for the students! They don’t take your investment lightly! They invest in you and give you all the strategies to succeed! My best advice if you are on the fence... RUN don’t walk and sign up! When you sign up do ALL of the Pre-work and classwork, it is essential to your success! If possible I recommend staying on site even if you are local (you’ll be glad you did). It really is AMAZING!
Awesome class. I learned so much and have more confidence in myself. Mrs. Ortega is a wonderful person with amazing teaching skills and a great heart.
The 3 day coding class is amazing. I learned so much in such a short time!!!Mrs Ortega rocks!!!I would highly recommend taking this class!!!
BEST Decision EVER MADE!!!! Invest in yourself and TAKE Mrs.Ortega course 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 She IS A BLESSING!!!!!!!
Extremely recommend Ms.Ortega she does amazing work in just 3 days !
I attended the 3-day CPC course in Los Angeles October 2018 and I just received the news that I Pass on my first try. Mrs. Ortega you are awesome. When I first saw her videos on YouTube I was a bit skeptical but let me tell you its real. You will be learning from the best. Be prepare for hard work but totally worth your time and money. The test is a beast but with Mrs. Ortega's class there is no doubt you will pass.
I took Mrs.Ortegas 3 day course in october of 2018.I watch all of her youtube videos and decided to take a chance.It was worth every penny.You have to do a lot of homework and prework ,sleepless nights.But it is worth every peeny.Mrs.Ortega breaks it down in a way you can understand.I took my test on October 27th.The wait is hard.I receive a notification from aapc saying my results are ready.on November 6 i found out that i PASSED.I could not have done it without Mrs.ortega and Medical Coding Academy help.I waill forever be thankful.
Shelly Wilhite Ramirez
I'm going to be honest! After completing this course I was so overwhelmed. Mrs. Ortega went the extra mile to help me pass this beast of exam. I can not express enough how this lady truly cares for her students. My sister in law was hired a couple of months after passing the exam by established company. She started making decent money, 3 weeks vacation, full medical, 401k and works from home. Take this course you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Shelly Ramirez
Kiana K Avelino
I took Mrs. Ortegas course during October of 2018 and it was intense but I just so happen to pass my first exam on the first try as Mrs. Oretega tells you, you will! shes awsome and this program is worth the money!
I attended the 3-day CPC course in Los Angeles on October 19-21, 2018. The pre-work and the course itself was intense, but you will be SO impressed with what you can do and how much you can handle when you set your mind to something. I learned so much in 3 days and I completed the course feeling ready for the CPC exam. Additionally, Mrs. Ortega is genuine, caring, and one heck of a teacher! It’s difficult to find the exact words to say about Mrs. Ortega because she really is a blessing and one in a million. I did all of the homework after the course and took my CPC Exam exactly one week after. I passed on my first try and I’m officially CPC-certified! I’ll definitely be back at MCA next year for the COC and CPMA courses. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for all that you do!!!!
Mark G Media-Links
Taking this class was an amazing experience and blessing!!! I could not have asked for a better and more caring instructor. Mrs. Ortega truly cares for her students and for their success. This program best prepares you for getting into the field! It's also the shortest and most affordable one out there. I can tell that a lot of thought, preparation and care went into the design of this program. Don't wait any longer and sign up for the class and then a week later for the board exam!
This has been a life-changing course for me! I was curious how someone could be ready to take the CPC exam after a weekend course, but Mrs. Ortega was true to her word and made it happen! I found out I passed my exam a week after the course and exam day. Be prepared to work hard and believe in yourself, believe in Mrs. Ortega (and her magnificent team), and you'll succeed! I didn't know much about medical coding prior to the course, but I feel much more knowledgeable and equipped to continue in this field. Thank you, MCA!!

Best investment you'll ever make all around!

I can’t stress this enough, if you are looking to get certified CPC, COC,...etc..with or without experience in the medical field and you are not using Medical Coding Academy you are doing this all wrong. I did the the CPC 3 day boot camp in September with Mrs Ortega (God sent) and her wonderful team. I have no experience, the 3 days class is very intense but well worth it. Make sure to do all of your homework this is crucial. Mrs Ortega have a heart of gold and she will drill so much information to you that, when you write your test you will feel like she is sitting next to you and “You will keep it moving” 😀 I can’t wait to get other credentials with Medical Coding Academy #CPCDallasTX #MedicalCodingAcademy #BestCodingSchool #CPCBootCamp
I attended the CPC course taught by Mrs. ORTEGA this last Weekend And wow did I learn a lot in such a little timeframe. I'm going to community college to get my AAS in professional coding but I was getting worried because I just was not understanding how to code properly But when you take her course she breaks everything down so that you can understand it in simple terms. I am so grateful for that, Not saying that the course is easy you will have to put in hard work but in the end when you understand this new language of medical coding all your hard work is well worth it In the pay isn't too bad either. So if you want to get into the medical field As a coder I would do this before college it will save you a lot of time and money She is truly gifted and has a tremendous amount of knowledge in her field, more than I think my own professor's Have. The key to absorbing all the information that she gives you is you have to Do what she says, all pre work and all homework. So if you're on the fence hop off in sign up for her class there's enough coding jobs for all of Us.
Mrs..Ortega is an amazing teacher!! Thank you so much
What can I say.... She is a lot. The class is a lot. It takes 100% commitment to get everything you need. You get only enough sleep to function on. It’s worth every missed second of sleep, every dollar spent, and every thing of ribbon white out I throw across the room. Here is my story...Mrs Ortega is pretty amazing! I took her 3 day class on October 5-7 and took my test on October 13. In between that time hurricane Michael hit my home and I was out of power for 7 days and in the middle of those 7 days was my test. To say I was worried would be an understatement. Yes you come home with homework to keep you on track and keep it fresh on your mind but in this situation it was a struggle. I had no power, a roof covered in tarps, 2 stir crazy boys, trying to help the community and ones that were in worse shape then me, as well as studying and remembering everything Mrs Ortega taught me! If I would not have taken her class I know 100% I would not have even came close to passing. I messaged her with my struggles and told her I was worried. She believed in me more than I believed in myself. At that moment I know she gave me everything I needed and I couldn’t let her down. I didn’t reschedule my test because of the things happening out of my control. I put everything I had into God and Mrs Ortega and I sat down and took that test like I knew every answer! I passed with a 86!!!! She is truly God sent in this field and I will never ever ever dream of trying to further my career without seeking her advice and classes out first. Take heed of everything this amazing woman says. She knows her stuff. Do exactly like she says and everything she says and you too will pass!

i drove 7 hours to Los Angeles last Aug to attend the 3 day course ,so worthy the time and money spent. I was amazed of Ms Delissa's passion and anointing in teaching. She is super multi talented. lady. I passed my exam for the first time, no experience and i'm 60 yrs old. This proved that age and experience don't matter what is important is how good, (the BEST).. the teacher is. She gave me the confidence to do it. She will guide you, give the strategies and gave her heart to help you.....in return of course you do also the pre work and apply every word she said. ....She was really heaven sent . I'm thanking God for the grace and use people like ma'am Delissa to help students. Thank you very much ma'am Delissa for your time with us and be a part of my journey. Looking forward for the next alphabet soup.😍😘
There are no words to describe Mrs Ortega and her wonderful team at MCA. My sister and I took her 3-day INTENSIVE medical coding course and I am proud to say we BOTH passed on our first try!! We were so impressed with the Medical Coding Academy, that I convinced my HUSBAND to take her course 2 weeks later! We are thrilled with where this new path of medical coding will take us. Mrs Ortega has this passion for coding and seeing people succeed that you have to experience to understand. Do your research (as I did) and take the leap with the Medical Coding Academy! You will NOT be disappointed, in fact, you will be prepared and confident walking into that exam ready to OWN it, as I did!!! Thank you Mrs Ortega! I can only hope to take your courses for the CRC and COC this year! Please keep doing what you're doing. In a time of upheaval in my life, I am so thankful to have found you and the Medical Coding Academy! Direction, purpose, and achievement is what I have gained from your experience and knowledge. Oh! Not to mention, my CPC!🤗
I absolutely recommend taking Mrs Ortega's 3 day course for CPC if you're really serious about being a coder. I sat for her 3 day course just recently here in Atlanta and I'm telling you I couldn't be more prepared for my exam October 27th. Thank you Mrs Ortega for bringing all of your knowledge and energy to Atlanta. You really are the BEST!!!
I want to let everyone know how important is Ms. Ortega.The best teacher of this world. She only only wants to teach you but also makes you understand all of the materials. I was never involved with coding, so I thought that the class would be difficult. But Ms. Ortega has you covered in every angle. Everyone in her company is very helpful forBelen to Jessica and everyone else.Highly recommend
Amazing! Encouraging! Motivational! Blessed! We traveled from NC to GA this weekend to be apart of the MCA CPC 3 day course! Halfway into Day 1 yes Day 1 I received information that wasn’t given to me when I attended a community college 8 week boot camp prep course! Mrs. Oretga is a Very intelligent, patient and Blessed Woman! I encourage ALL to take this course with MCA if you want to change your career, and give your wages a upgrade! Love you Mrs. Ortega! Thank you for following the plan🙏🏽!
I highly recommend MCA because Mrs. Ortega teaches you how to code quickly and accurately that can help u when u take your exam. She is very passionate about making sure each individual passes their exam and prepares you for the interview to get that coding job. I would consider MCA over ANY coding programs because u receive so much more!
I passed my CPC exam at the first try, and I knew nothing about medical coding before her class. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MEDICAL CODING ACADEMY!!! Mrs. Ortega was AWESOME! and very professional. She wasted no time teaching us exactly what we needed to know for the CPC class. I highly highly recommend that you do the pre work before taking her 3-day course.
I took the 3 day coding bootcamp in Atlanta in June 2018. Mrs. Ortega was a wonderful, patient, knowledgeable, and caring instructor. There was a lot of pre-work and many nights of only 2 or 3 hours of sleep. It was all worth it. I am now CPC certified thanks to her! You will learn so much and feel confident at the AAPC if you take her course.
I went to Mrs Ortega’s Sept. 2018 3-day prep course! It was nothing short of amazing! She is very passionate about the process of learning, she answers your questions and makes sure you understand before moving on in the lesson. I have been Coding(not Certified for over 4years) her course and preparation gave me the confidence i needed... Guess what: I PASSED ON MY FIRST TIME TAKING THE TEST. Thank you Mrs Ortega for your dedication and hard work you put into teaching your students !
Jean Guest Barchers
I took the 3 day Medical Coding Certificate and Exam course 9/7/18-9/9/18. I was impressed with the information covered. I liked the way Mrs. Ortega explained the material. Mrs. Ortega and her staff were very helpful. The course really prepared me for the exam. I took the exam on 9/10/18 and passed. Now I am a Certified Profession Coder. It was a hard weekend, full of long class hours and prep/home work each night after the class ended, but there is a lot of information to cover in just three days, so the home work is necessary. The prep/home work really does help prepare youfor the test. Thanks Mrs. Ortega & staff!
I am a certified Medical Coding Coder because of Mrs.Ortega and her team, i passed the test on the first time around! I was very skeptic when i first looked into the class especially because I was going to be travel to Texas for the 3 day boot camp. The 3 day course is no joke, it is a lot of information with long days and hours of homework ever night. However it was all worth it, I was able to retain a lot of valuable information. I think it was imperative for me that the test was taken the day after I completed the course. Everything was still fresh in my mind. Mrs.Ortega gives you all of the tools (her tabbing system makes a world of difference) to pass the test along with the self confidence. As long as you put in the work you will successful! I highly recommend this class to anyone that wants to put in hard work and become a Certified Medical Coder. And I look forward to attending more classes with the Medical Coding Academy.
Misty Chivers Moss
Completed Mrs. Ortega’s 3 day CPC coding class and it was awesome. She makes coding easier and more understandable by bringing it down to lamens terms. I now have codes memorized I didn’t even know about before I came. I definetely feel more relaxed about taking my test. The class was tough and the the homework even tougher but totally worth every minute of lost sleep. Mrs. Ortega rocks!!!

You can't go wrong investing your money in this seminar! It truly is a wise investment in your own future! Whether you already have a history working in the medical coding & billing field and realize the value of Certification; Or you're a student who has already graduated from an accredited program of study and realize you need further assistance to achieve succssful testing scores; Or you're a relative ”newbie” like myself and need instruction & coaching from the ground up, Medical Coding Academy & Mrs. Ortega provide you with every skill & tool you will ever need. You will absolutely receive your money’s worth and then some! Mrs. Ortega is one of the most dedicated and focused instructors that I have experienced in my many years of schooling and her efforts were beyond expectation. The 3-day seminar in which I participated involved prep work at home which was time-consuming, but not difficult and so worth it. Do be prepared for a weekend of serious work and study! But know, your efforts will truly be rewarded! After the 3-day seminar, I was pre-registered to take the Certification exam on the fourth day, and I can happily declare amazing success!! Thank you Mrs. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy! You’ve all helped me start my new journey with a Bang!!
Mrs. Ortega and her team are awesome!!! I passed my CPC on the first try! I have a job opportunity waiting for me too!!! My whole experience was with Medical Coding Academy has been excellent! Get ready to work hard, highlight alot (it is soooo worth it) and keep a fast pace. All of the work is worth it!!! THANK YOU MRS. ORTEGA and YOUR TEAM!!!
Kris Ann Allen
I took Mrs. Ortega’s CPC class and learned so much. It’s hard work but very worth it. I got a 94 on my CPC exam.
Medical Coding Academy is worth the money, time, and sacrifice away from family! If you go into the class with your pre-work completed and fully prepared to focus solely on the course, you will be able to learn and obtain the information needed to pass your exam. Mrs. Ortega and each one of her staff members go above and beyond to help each individual! They truly believe in what they are doing, and after taking the course, I do too! You will have quite a bit of homework every night after class, so there is absolutely no time to vacation. If taking the CPC certification course, you will experience three days full of engaging lessons taught by someone who absolutely wants what is best for you and your future. The Medical Coding Academy staff pour their hearts into what they do! I went in with no experience in the industry. I left with a CPC certification, full faith in the abilities and heart of Mrs. Ortega and her staff, and the tools/materials necessary to immediately apply for a job while practicing the skills she taught.
Beverly Cowey Sullivan
Wow! I passed my CPC exam! Mrs. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy (MCA) took 3 days to teach the CPC coding course techniques that I’ve been studying for years. I did great with my coding online studies through AAPC, but when it came time for testing, I missed it twice. I thank GOD for putting people in my life that has helped me achieve my goal, to be a CPC. Thank you to my husband and family for helping and encouraging me. Thank you to three ladies who are friends/coworkers that also encouraged me and lead me to MCA. Thank You Mrs. Ortega for showing me that I can do this and for staying with your class throughout the long hours. It was so worth it! Don’t hesitate - go for it! You won’t regret it! Take this course and be on your way to a rewarding career! The cost was minimal compared to what I spent for my previous studies.
You will be blown away by how much you could learn and accomplish in 3 days if you put your mind into it. Take a chance and believe in yourself and put in the work and trust me, you will pass the CPC exam. This class will shock you. I passed the exam on the first try and I have no prior experience! Mrs. Ortega’s method of teaching works! She makes you learn!
I took the CPC 3day boot camp first weekend in September with Mrs Ortega. The staff was amazing especially my TA Mrs. Newby. This class was very intense but worth it. You must complete the pre-work and homework in order to stay on track. I took the exam on Monday the 10th with a PASSING result. I highly recommend this boot camp as you will not be disappointed. Thank you to the staff of MCA.
To for Mrs Ortega. This is real and you going to pass it the first time. I thank God for MCA and I recommend it for anyone.
This 3 day was the hardest most rewarding course I’ve ever taken! I am so thankful I got the opportunity to learn from Mrs Ortega and her team! I passed my Exam🎉 I highly recommend this course and this academy! I’m looking forward to getting many more credentials behind my name with MCA!
Just took the cpc course on the 7-9. Took my test on Monday the 10th. I just received my test scores today I PASSED my first time taking this test! Thank you so so much Mrs.Ortega. Highly recommend this course!
When I first looked at the video on YouTube I thought this might be shady...I WAS TOTALLY WRONG!!! This team of people are the REAL DEAL...they are worth every penny. People please don't bother with any other programs out there...PLEASE TRUST ME!!! Is is not about the money with them and you know it when you start to work with them...they LOVE PEOPLE AND EDUCATING THEM! I am so grateful that I took a leap of faith...I encourage you to do the same😄🤗😁😙!
Chanell Vallon Imbraguglio
I had been looking into medical coding for the last year. I had narrowed the decision down to online courses with either the AAPC or AHIMA. Soon after I became even more indecisive after researching both organizations due to mixed reviews. Then in March I came across one of Ms. Ortega's YouTube videos. After watching the first video, she had me hook, line and sinker!!!! This woman is truly a God Send!! Like everyone now reading these reviews, I thought this is crazy amazing!! OMG this is just too good to be true! How am going to become this Go To medical coder in only three days??? Please believe me when I say, it is truly possible. This is the real deal! During the months following up to the three day course, I had watched all of Ms. Ortega's videos....more than once...and took notes. The course only costs $1280 and MCA works with you in regards to a payment plan. After registering for the CPC course, MCA mails their students pre-work. The pre-work will take roughly 20 to 25 hours to complete and it is truly essential when taking the course. I attended the course in Dallas, TX at the end of July. We had about 95 students attending the class. One student had even flown all the way from Hawaii just to attend! I'm not going to lie, the course is intense but you will learn a vast amount of information in only three days. Ms. Ortega and her MCA staff are truly amazing!!!!!!!!! She is an explosive powerhouse of coding knowledge and breaks everything down for you by having you work from the ground up. I can not stress enough how important it is to complete both the pre-work and homework. The completion of this work can either make you or break you on the board exam. Ms. Ortega also gives you interviewing tips along with helpful real world practice scenarios that will benefit you after you pass the exam. Now with the Dallas course, students are given an option of taking the board exam on the fourth day. I was one of those students who chose to take the exam on the fourth day. Unfortunately I did not pass the first time. It had absolutely nothing to do with Ms. Ortega and her classroom instruction. From what I've heard many students pass on the first try. Unfortunately I was not one of those students. I felt pretty good coming out of the exam room and thought I had at least passed with a 70 but to my dismay I missed it by three points. Three points!!!! You know what though....It's okay. AAPC offers one free retake!!! Thank you God!! After I found out the horrible news, I texted Ms. Ortega. She was extremely understanding and suggested I retake the exam within the month. For the next three weeks, I studied at least one hour everyday. I took the retake exam and a week later found out I PASSED!!!!!!! I'm still elated from the news and can't wait to continue on with my medical coding career!! So in conclusion if you feel beyond confident with taking the board exam on the fourth day then I say go for it but if you're someone who may need more time to study, I would suggest delaying the exam for a couple of weeks. Good luck future Go To Coders!!!
Yes! 100% yes!! Mrs. Ortega was incredible, she was a powerhouse of information with an incredible tabbing system designed to guide us into success. I hid my tears after the test because it was hard but I was relieved, motivated, and inspired by her energy. She touched every emotion in me, pushed me to the limit, and delivered a no questions asked just do it curriculum. When she says to trust her, trust her. Although I may have areas I need to revisit for refreshers, honestly that’s on me. Her teaching was on point and if you think you have what it takes to keep up, stay motivated, and follow her lead then you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. I flew from California to attend her class in Dallas. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Mrs. Ortega! 💜
I just took the three day course this past weekend. First I would like to thank GOD for faith and endurance. I would secondly like to thank Mrs. Oregtea and Medical Coding Academy. This is by far one of the BEST decisions I've ever made for a life changing experience for me. Mrs. Ortega really has a gift for teaching, she taught the course in a way that if you haven't learned anything about coding before going to her three day course you would be able to understand. Moving forward I feel strongly about becoming a coder, and I will definitely be going to Medical Coding Academy to take more course to add under my belt. Thanks again to Mrs. Ortega and her staff, and remember my name cause you will definitely see it again.
My experience from the coding boot camp this weekend was so amazing. Mrs. Ortega is amazing and so gifted at what she does. She makes the boot camp so personal. It’s a long weekend of work but so worth every minute! I’ve taken a 9 month coding course and never felt prepared as I have now for the CPC exam. I can honestly say she made it easy to grasp everything I needed to know to take the exam. I will definitely be going back to gain another creditial with the MCA in the near future.

Best coding class I have ever attended!

This was by far the best class I ever taken. I learned so much in 3 days that most people don’t learn in years. Mrs. Ortega does an awesome job at explaining things so simple for you to understand. I now have confidence in entering into this field and it’s all thanks to her. If you have been struggling to pass your cpc exam etc. listen to me...TAKE THIS COURSE!!! You will thank me later. Thank you so much Mrs. Ortega and the Medical Coding Academy staff, you guys are awesome ❤️❤️❤️
To anyone wanting to get into the medical coding industry- Medical Coding Academy is the Only program you need to take to Pass the state boards!! Guaranteed!! Miss Ortega’s classes are Invaluable and you will pass the exam if you do the work!! Unfortunately it took me four long years and $$$ before discovering MCA via the internet. I took Miss Ortega’s three day CPC workshop and passed my exam four weeks later which was my third time taking it!! Miss Ortega and her staff go above and beyond, keeping in touch with you until you sit for your exam. I can not stress enough how valuable this course is!!! Thank you Miss Ortega and God Bless You!!😍😍
I had been looking into medical coding for months now, but had been struggling to afford to pay to go to college. I came across MCA while I was searching for medical coding courses, and I decided to take a chance! Mrs. Ortega's course is 100% WORTH IT!! I have no background or experience in coding at all, I have only had experience working in retail. I took Mrs. Ortega's CPC Course, and I passed my exam on the FIRST try! Everything you hear about Mrs. Ortega is all true, she is 100% there for her students, and she will do whatever it takes to get you there. Please support MCA and take Mrs. Ortega's class while you can because it truly is a miracle!! Just do your pre-work and just listen to what she tells you to do and she will guide you in the right way! If I can do it, anyone can do it!! Shout out to you Mrs. Ortega and the staff of MCA for all the hard work and sacrifices you all have made to make this course happen. This is truly going to be a life changing experience for me because now I can finally look forward to having a career, and a future! You have no idea how much this all means to me. I will wake up every morning now, and thank God that I took that class. Especially when I get up to go to work, and be thankful that I get to be a part of the medical industry and do what I've always wanted to do! Thank you MCA - the academy that changes lives and opens so many doors of opportunities! I look forward to being back in again to further my education, and get my "alphabet soup"! And if you have read this far into my post, I thank you, but you should be going to sign up for Mrs. Ortega's class NOW!! 😀
There's no way I could have passed the CPC on the first try without the Medical Coding Academy and Mrs. Ortega's dedication. I strongly recommend attending the academy if you are interested in coding. Only attend if you are willing to work hard! Kudos to Mrs. Ortega!

I recommend the Medical Coding Academy for a number of reason.Upon signing up for the CPC (Certified Professional Coders) Class I watched Mrs.Ortega’s YouTube videos and with doing that I just new I had to take her class. Mrs. Ortega is more than knowledgeable about all subject matters in regards to the Medical Coding and any and all of the classes that are offered by the Medical Coding Academy.In the 3 day Coding class there were many people that walk in to class of many different walks of life and careers.But while in that class Mrs.Ortega is able to project a understanding of any and all subject matter to the whole class. Mrs.Ortega makes sure that you are more that prepared for for the class, the state board test and real life on the job functions .I actually went to college for Medical billing and Coding and obtain Associates Degree in Medical Billing and Coding. But I learned far more in the 3 day boot camp class offered by the Medical Coding Academy then I learned while obtaining my associates,to were I felt more than comfort taking the state board test immediately after the class. I took the test on July 30, 2018 and I passed the CPC with a 90% out of 100.Since July 2018 I have also take the following classes and have scheduled to take my state board exam for the following-Certified Outpatient Coder- COCCertified Professional Medical Auditor-CPMACertified Professional Biller-CPBOnce completing the above three test I have every intention of registering for and taking the following 3 additional classes and state board tests for the following-Certified Risk Adjuster Certified Compliance OfficerCertified Medical Coding ManagerI want to one day have my own medical coding and billing office. So these class and certifications are directly in line with my future becoming even more a success. To all the of you that are on the fence about take a class with the Medical Coding Academy , make a investment in yourself to where you can go work at any doctor’s office, hospital, or even go to work for yourself and start your own business.Mrs.Ortega is a superior educator as well as all of the other 5 educators that are on this panel of educating. Choosing the Medical Coding Academy will be one of the best decisions that you will make in your life time.Sincerely Claresia
I recently attended this class an I would like to say that Mrs. Ortega is one-in-a-million! She helped someone who is just starting out in the healthcare profession pass the CPC exam on the first try! That takes one special person and! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for sharing your teaching gift with all of us. I recommend this class to anyone wanting to pass your exam with ease.
You know the saying don't believe the hype? WELL YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!Let me tell you, when I was first looking for medical coding courses I ran across Mrs Ortega 3-day course. I will say that I was very skeptical at first I did tons and tons of research of the course. I watched all YouTube videos I read just about every single review and even watch the reviews on YouTube. so then I thought to myself all these people can't be lying lol. So I took that "dive". I took the 3-day course in boy when I tell you it is intense it is but you so freaking much it's crazy. The passion that Mrs Ortega has for you to learn the skill too code, the passion that she has to teach is amazing. I love her so much for what she does and how she does it. I have the utmost respect for her. Don't get me wrong she is a bulldog when it comes to teaching when it comes to you knowing everything. And if you don't understand something she will take the time out with you to make sure that you understand, to make sure that you pass that test, to make sure that you Excel in the coding world. So if you're on the fence about taking this class, don't be. I promise you it is worth everything. Don't waste time taking those semester courses for coding. TAKE MRS ORTEGA 3-DAY COURSE ASAP YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT I PROMISE YOU SHE'S AMAZING. Oh yeah one more thing in order to pass the exam on the first try, you must and I repeat YOU MUST DO EVERYTHING THAT SHE TELLS YOU TO DO WITHIN THAT 3-DAY COURSE. I mean it. Everything is for a reason.
Ms. Ortega is an incredible teacher. I was skeptical and in total disbelief at first, but she proved me wrong. Even though, the three day course was tiresome, it was all worth it. Ms. Ortega is thorough in her method of teaching and if you follow her tips, the exam is a cakewalk. I immediately took the exam after my 3-day course and passed with flying colors. Ms. Ortega is Godsend. I would recommend MCA to anyone who is interested in coding.
Mrs. Ortega and the folks at Medical Coding Academy are the very best. The three-day CPC course was lots of work, with long hours, but it was worth it! Passing the exam on the first try was my goal and with MCA's tutelage, I succeeded.
Hello!! I would recommend this three day course to anyone who wants to become a Professional Medical Coder. Mrs.Ortiga is an amazing teacher and she has a best teaching style. Her course is completely organized. I'm new to coding and I have zero coding experience. I attended the 3- day course at Dallas, Texas (end of July) and sat for the exam on the 4th day. Well folks, I PASSED on my first try. Now I'm a CPC-A. All thanks to Mrs.Ortega and Medical Coding Academy. Without Mrs.Ortega this wouldn't have happened. This class is a real big deal. The course is intense, you'll have to work hard and no doubt that the results are so rewarding. I'm so grateful to Mrs.Ortega and MCA for providing me with all the materials and knowledge that gave me confidence to take the board exam on the very next day and now I'm CPC-A. Thank you Mrs.Ortega & MCA !!
I completed the 3 day course and it was worth all the hard work, time and money. Mrs. Ortega is very motivating and everyone involved is very helpful and there to help you succeed. I’m so glad that I decided to take part in the program. I just learned that I passed my certification exam and I’m looking forward to my new career.

I recently took the 3 day CPC class and followed it with the very intimidating exam. Thanks to the teachings of Ms Ortega I passed on the 1st try!! I would recommend this 3 day boot camp to anyone. Her staff are incredibly hard working and helpful, and Ms Ortega actually cares about her students. You put in the time and effort and she will get you there!
I passed first try, no experience!Long story short, I attended a one year vocational university, Wasted $20k, they did not prepare me for the exam one bit. I started looking into study guides and how to study for the exams when I came across medical coding academy. I remember i watched two videos, and immediately went to see if they were coming to Chicagoland area, but i missed it by just five days. So, i was back to square one. Suddenly it clicked. If i can waste 20k at a university that did absolutely nothing for me i can spend $1200, for a miracle. I flew all the way from Illinois to Dallas Texas for this class. It was worth the long days in Mrs. Ortega’s class. We had roughly 100 students in the class and she managed to teach the entire class to the point where every student understand and she made sure of it. Words cannot describe how amazing Mrs. Ortega and the entire staff are. I had no clue how or even to sign up and register for my exam but they helped me out with everything even before I signed up for their classes. They are willing to go out of their way to help you, you will truly not regret taking any of the exam prep classes. They are dedicated to their work, helpful, caring, and just truly amazing. I cannot wait to continue my alphabet soup as i will without a doubt, take more of their classes (:
I completed the 3-Day Medical Coding Course for my CPC-A in Dallas, Texas this last week and I learned so much through it! I came out of high school with zero medical experience and was able to complete the course and take the test. Mrs. Ortega was a superb teacher!!! She kept the class moving along and took time to explain each of the different concepts clearly. She gave the students one-on-one time and answered our questions promptly. The assistants were also very helpful and helped me keep up on my projects. I loved the course and the way that Mrs. Ortega taught us all. I am looking forward to getting to obtain a medical coding outpatient job for while I am in college. This course was definitely worth the time and money necessary!! Without it, I don't know how else I would've been able to finish the test, let alone get a good score on it. Thank you so much, Medical Coding Academy!!!!!

Where do I start? Just finished a 3 day boot camp in Dallas. WOW. So glad I took this step. Yes, I did have doubts, and people tried to discourage me, but that didn't stop me from making a huge life changing decision. Totally worth the $$.I am signing up for more "alphabet soup" as Mrs. Ortega calls it. Mrs Ortega and her staff ROCKS!!! Incredibly helpful, they know their stuff. If you choose to take any class, and I pray you do, DO THE PREWORK BEFORE THE CLASS! If I could make that statement bold and underlined, I would. Many people didn't do the prework, and had a hard time staying with the class. I had a blast. Yes, the days are long, but it's a little pain for a long term game. I'm 46, and I was able to keep up lol.Have a BLESSED day.
