Education & Certification

AACMCA Serves the Sub-specialty of Medical Coding/Auditors.

Previously there has been no group that represents the sub-specialty of medical coding/ auditors.

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. It takes a greater depth of knowledge, just like in other arenas in medicine, there are sub-specialties that have developed.

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).

Take the first step to earning your CMCA-HCC specialty certification by taking the Coder/Auditor course then become a Superior AACMCA member.

 Successfully passing the Risk Adjustment/HCC Coder/Auditor Course is the most common pathway for becoming a superior member of AACMCA.

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.
