CEU Approval for Individual Courses and Workshops

Are you offering a seminar, course or webinar that qualifies for a PAHCOM CEU approval? The CMM credential recognizes the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to manage physician practices or other ambulatory service centers in an increasingly complex environment.

CMMs work as critical links between providers, patients, staff and payers. CEUs are granted based on course content. The content must be relevant to the CMM and fall into at least one of nine domains of medical practice administration:

Domain 1. Revenue Management
Subdomain a. Coding analysis
Subdomain b. Insurance Billing and Collections
Subdomain c. Patient Billing and Collections
Domain 2. Risk Management

Subdomain a. Pay-for-Performance
Subdomain b. Meaningful Use
Subdomain c. Physicians Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
Domain 9. Patient Clinical Education and Practice Marketing

CEU approval is granted for a 12 month period and the course may be delivered multiple times during the 12 months. After a 12 month period the course must be resubmitted for approval.

The number of CEUs granted is based on the course duration. CEUs are given in .5 increments. A 1 hour session will earn 1 CEU. If your course runs 8 hours but has a 1-hour lunch break and two 15-minute coffee breaks the total CEUs granted will be 6.5.

The fee for CEU approval is $150.00 per course (up to 3 hours in duration).

For our Corporate Members, in the case of a webinar offered free to PAHCOM members, the approval charge is waived.

Upon approval for PAHCOM CEUs, you will be given access to post your event on the PAHCOM Education Calendar

PAHCOM will also provide you with a certificate to give to course attendees.
