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 10 associated final certification exams with a score of 80% or higher. There are three exam attempts per course. Recertification is required every two years.
This workshop will be hosted online, through a virtual platform. Your registration includes three days of instruction from a Master Teacher, access to digital workshop materials, and access to the ten 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.
