The Need for Certification

Become a Superior Member and Obtain Certification.

Our first sub-specialty coder/auditor designation is the newest area of medical reimbursement, Hierarchical Condition Categories or HCCs. We have aligned ourselves with the very thorough and rigorous online course developed by Medical Audit Resource Services Inc (MARSI) and presented by both MARSI and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). It is a course that trains auditors, not just coders. Successfully passing that course is a prerequisite for being certified by AACMCA and earning the credential, AACMCA-HCC.

Providing Training and Retraining

AACMCA provides quality review of the MARSI/AHIMA course and the continuing education that they provide. The goal of AACMCA is to provide training and retraining for subspecialty auditors. We promote the highest standards and will not allow the quality of the education to decline. The certification is only available through achievement.

Certification through Achievement

Risk Adjustment/HCC Coder/Auditor Certification is the newest area. It is obvious to us that an individual who is a very good coder still does not know enough to be a very good auditor. It takes greater training and experience. We have aligned ourselves with the very thorough and rigorous online course developed by Medical Audit Resource Services Inc., (MARSI). The course is presented by both MARSI and the American Health Information Management Association AHIMA.
