The CMA (AAMA): Health Care's Most Versatile Professional
The American Association of Medical Assistants provides the medical assistant professional with education, certification, credential acknowledgment, networking opportunities, scope-of-practice protection, and advocacy for quality patient-centered health care.
CMA (AAMA) Certification
The CMA (AAMA) is awarded to candidates who pass the CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Examination. The National Board of Medical Examiners serves as test consultant for the exam. The CMA (AAMA) credential must be recertified every 60 months by the continuing education or re-examination method.
Assessment-Based Recognition in Order Entry
On November 12, 2013, the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) directed the AAMA Continuing Education Board to establish the Assessment-Based Recognition (ABR) in order entry program for electronic health records (EHRs). Individuals who are granted this ABR in order entry meet the "credentialed medical assistant" requirement under the September 5, 2012, rule of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs.
