To recertify, complete the checklist below. For more information, visit the Recertify page.
What is the recertification fee?
If you hold one credential, the recertification fee is $218.
If you hold more than one credential, the first recertification fee is $218 and each additional certification is $50. Upon completion of the requirements, a baccalaureate or higher-level HIM credential (RHIA®) replaces an associate-based HIM credential (RHIT®). Once granted, the baccalaureate-based credential is recognized and CEUs for this credential need only be maintained.
