MACRA proficiency pays!

The challenge of coding, billing, compliance and auditing in the dynamic, complex environment of healthcare requires you to possess the highest level of professional insights. AAPC is committed to assisting our members to meet that responsibility.
AAPC's MACRA Proficiency Assessment assesses the proficiency and underlying knowledge of key concepts related to the new Quality Payment Program (QPP), enacted by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
The Assessment covers essential QPP concepts from the viewpoint of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the reporting and scoring requirements of clinical data as related to physicians’ payments under the new payment tracks.
This is a 100-question, multiple-choice exam that must be completed within 90 minutes. A score of 70% or higher is required for passing. Two attempts are allowed. This is not a certification exam, it is a proficiency Assessment, however, AAPC recognizes the need of the hiring public to identify individuals who have a working knowledge of MACRA. Therefore, successful testers will be permitted to include that year's designation, plus "AAPC MACRA Proficient" with their certification/s on a signature line. For example: Jane Smith, CPC, 2019 AAPC MACRA Proficient.
AAPC's MACRA Proficient Assessment validates your up-to-date knowledge and abilities related to QPP Medicare payment tracks.
