Superior membership is reserved for those who have passed more specific requirements and imparts voting rights. The specific requirements, for example, in Risk Adjustment/HCC's would be to pass the MARSI/AHIMA coder/auditor course. Becoming a superior member also imparts certification in that sub-specialty, for example, CMCA-HCC for those that have passed the coder/auditor course.  There are specific continuing education requirements to maintain Superior Membership of 15 hours per year of approved CEUs.  The cost of a superior membership is $50.00 for a period of 12 months.  
(Question for Todd this sentence seems out of place, is it related to the Exam Only path to certification?) Having passed similar courses or having a volume of auditor experience and passing the final exam of the MARSI/AHIMA course may be qualification as determined by the commission on certification of AACMCA.
