Certification Exams Only

In many cases, healthcare professionals already have the experience in billing, coding, auditing, and management, so they just need to take the exam to show that they are certified. ARHCP is proud to offer online certification exams for medical coding (RMC), medical billing (RMB), medical management (RMM), medical auditing (RMA) and evaluation and management (REMS). The certification exams include two attempts and are administered completely online through ARHCP’s interactive learning site.
