AHIMA credential holders:
If you earned your certification prior to the certification exam changing over to ICD-10, you are required to earn ICD-10 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). This is in order to satisfy the Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management’s (CCHIIM’s) ICD-10 policy. Time is running out to earn and record your ICD-10 CEUs; you may be required to have them entered as soon as December 31, 2015. Your AHIMA credential(s) will be changed to inactive if you do not meet the appropriate deadline.
Please visit http://www.ahima.org/certification/Recertification to review how many ICD-10 CEUs you are required to earn, see the deadline for when they must be reported, and/or record them in the ICD-10 CEU Reporting Tool, which is located under “Recertification Resources.”
