RAC-CTA Certification Virtual Workshop 5/7/2024 by Hansen Hunter

  • Registration Closed

The Resident Assessment Coordinator-Certified Advanced (RAC-CTA®) program is an advanced certification for clinical reimbursement leaders. This workshop provides advanced principles of clinical reimbursement, Medicare program compliance and integrity, RAI/MDS program integrity, leadership, ethical practice, managing medical review, accurate ICD-10 diagnosis coding, advanced strategies for payment oversight, and improving a facility’s quality measurement in all CMS quality programs. Whether you are a clinical reimbursement specialist in a regional, state, or national consultant, or are a professional in any aspect of MDS and Medicare compliance and oversight, this program will help you excel as a reimbursement leader.

The RAC-CTA certification program consists of 10 education courses designed for post-acute care professionals with at least 1-2 years of experience with the MDS/RAI process. If you have less experience, consider MDS Essentials as a foundation to get you started and make sure you’re prepared to succeed in the RAC-CTA program. To earn the RAC-CTA credential, you must successfully complete the associated final certification exams with a score of 80% or higher. You will have one year from the date of the workshop before they expire. There are three exam attempts per course. Recertification is required every two years.

Your registration includes three days of virtual instruction from a Master Teacher, access to digital workshop materials, and access to the 10 certification exams. We suggest downloading and saving each PDF to a device of your choice. Although not required, you may print the PDFs at your own expense. If you decide to print your  materials, please remember that changes and updates are continually incorporated into the workshop materials.
