AHIMA Extends CEU Reporting, Certification, and Membership Deadlines
Due to technical difficulties and increased demand on the AHIMA’s CEU Center and web store during this peak CEU earning and reporting period, AHIMA is extending the period where you can earn CEUs to January 31, 2017, from the original date of December 31, 2016 (for those whose cycle ended on 12/31/2016).
This means you can continue to earn CEUs through the first month of this year and continue to enter any CEUs earned prior to January 31, 2017, through the end of your grace period on March 31, 2017. Any CEUs earned prior to January 31, 2017 and self reviews (for coding credentials) completed by March 31, 2017, will count toward your recertification requirements.
If your recertification cycle ends on December 31, 2016, you have until March 31, 2017, to report your CEUs without incurring a late fee.
If you are attempting to reinstate a revoked credential prior to the December 31, 2016, deadline, please note we have extended the deadline for reinstatement to January 31, 2017.
If you are a holder of an AHIMA coding credential (CCA, CCS, CSS-P), the 2016 coding self-review is now available and you will have until March 31, 2017, to complete the self-review.
If your membership renewal is due on December 31, 2016, you may renew at any time.
