Now Available ... MDS RAC-CTA Advanced Certification!

For the RAC-CT professionals looking to take their experience to a higher level, LeadingAge Michigan, a training partner with AANAC, introduces the Resident Assessment Coordinator-Certified Advanced (RAC-CTA) education program and certification. The RAC-CTA 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.

Is RAC-CTA right for you?
Whether you are a professional in any aspect of MDS and Medicare compliance and oversight or a clinical reimbursement specialist in a regional, state or national consultant position, this program will help you excel as a reimbursement leader. Anyone can attend the workshop but you must hold a current RAC-CT to quality to take the RAC-CTA exam.

Criteria to maintain RAC-CTA certification: These are separate certifications and as such, they each have their own Body of Knowledge. RAC-CT must be maintained as well as RAC-CTA. Learn more about the RAC-CTA Certification by downloading the Candidate Handbook.
