Have You Met Your AHIMA Recertification Requirements?

Have You Met Your AHIMA Recertification Requirements?

If your recertification cycle expires at the end of this year and you have not yet met the requirements for renewal, click here to verify your status and take the necessary steps to complete the recertification process. Avoid an inactive status by visiting your CEU Center and submitting the required CEUs with your supporting documentation. To take advantage of the member discount on recertification fees, you must purchase a membership prior to or on the recertification expiration date. Once the membership is paid, your recertification discount will be applied.
As a reminder, each year a percentage of credential holders are randomly selected for an audit. Individuals selected for audits will be required to submit verifiable documentation (for example, certificates of attendance or similar materials) for each activity listed in their CEU Center.
More information on recertification requirements can be found in this Recertification Guide.  Click here for ILHIMA virtual education opportunities.

ACT NOW!  Tell the Senate to Support the Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act

 Advocacy Alert 


The bipartisan "Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act" has recently been introduced in the US Senate. We need your outreach to build support for this important legislation.


Prior authorization continues to be the number one administrative burden identified by healthcare providers. In a 2018 report by the US Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of the Inspector General, it was found that Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) overturned 75 percent of their own denials each year. These denials risk patient safety and add burdens to an already overburdened healthcare system.


A 2020 survey from the American Medical Association stated that 30 percent of physicians reported that prior authorization requirements have led to a serious adverse event for a patient in their care. This legislation would modernize the way Medicare Advantage plans and healthcare providers use prior authorization, removing unnecessary steps and complications for patients while streamlining administrative processes associated with prior authorization.  

As an AHIMA member, you are the voice of health information on the Hill.


Contact your US Senators and ask them to support this vital legislation. Click the link below to email your Members of Congress now.
