For over 25 years the Professional Certification exam has set the standard of excellence in patient accounting.The Certified Patient Account Manager and Certified Clinic Account Manager exam is every bit as challenging for patient account managers as the CPA and Bar exams are for their respective fields. Sitting for this exam takes commitment and dedication. That's one of the reasons it is so prestigious in our industry.
The exam is given two times a year on the last Saturday of April and September. The sections for the CPAM exam are Admissions/Registration, Billing, Credit/ Collections, and Accounts Receivable Management. The CCAM sections are Patient Communication/Registration, Billing, Credit/Collections, and Accounts Receivable Management.
The Technical Certification program was developed in 1992 as a direct result of the dramatic changes in the health care industry. AAHAM developed the Certified Patient Account Technician (CPAT) and Certified Clinic Account Technician (CCAT) examinations to test the proficiency of individuals involved in the patient accounting revenue cycle and to prepare them for the many changes to come. In 2006 AAHAM introduced the Certified Compliance Technician (CCT) to it's technical exam offerings.
The Technical Certification exam is second only to the Professional exam in terms of difficulty and time needed to prepare for it. Successful completion of the exam should indicate to a prospective employer that an individual has mastered the common body of technical knowledge required of an employee in the patient accounts department. Certification designation affords benefits during job search or promotional opportunities
