You should be recognized for extensive knowledge in your field! HFMA offers a number of certification programs for varying levels of career development. Here’s a summary of HFMA certification!
The longest standing certifications through HFMA are the CHFP and FHFMA. The Certified Healthcare Finance Professional (CHFP) is the starting point to recognition as an expert in your field. With further education and volunteerism, the Fellow (FHFMA) credential can be earned. Both of these designations highlight a commitment to this field and an in-depth knowledge of today’s issues in healthcare finance.
In recent years, HFMA has created additional educational programs for some credential programs that are equally as relevant, but more specifically focused for other areas of non-clinical healthcare realms, including revenue cycle, IT and auditing. These credentials are:
CRCR – Certified Revenue Cycle Representative
CICA – Certified Inpatient Coding Auditor
CSBI – Certified Specialist Business Intelligence
CSAF – Certified Specialist Accounting & Finance
CSMC – Certified Specialist Managed Care
CSPPM – Certified Specialist Physician Practice Management
