Use of RCCIR Credential
Certification and Recognition
Candidates who pass the test will receive a certificate suitable for framing with the designation as a Radiology Certified Coder in Interventional Radiology (RCCIR). These RCCIRs will also receive the RCCB® e-Newsletter, and have their name published on the RCCB® Web site.
Guidelines for Use of RCCIR Credential
The RCC designation, as well as trademarks, logos, examinations and other materials of the RCCB®, are the exclusive property of the RCCB® and may not be used unless explicitly authorized by the RCCB®.
Recertification of the RCCIR Credential
The RCCIR certification is valid for two years. RCCIRs must adhere to the RCCB® standards, policies and procedures, and obtain 12 CEUs approved by RCCB® over two years to receive recertification. Alternatively, you may retake the exam. A new certificate will be provided to you upon receipt of the recertification fee based on the fee schedule with documentation of your CEUs. If you choose to retake the exam, the fee will be the same as for a new applicant.
Revocation of RCCIR Credential
RCC certification may be revoked under the following circumstances:
- Exclusion from participation in the Medicare or Medicaid program, or conviction of, or if you pled guilty or nolo contendre to, a criminal offense involving federal or state health care laws.
- Conviction of a health care related felony.
- Submission of falsified or misleading application or test.
- Violation of the RCCB® standards, policies or procedures.
Before any credential is revoked, RCCIRs will be provided with a notice of the reason for the proposed revocation and an opportunity to explain their position to the RCCB® Appeals Committee and in accordance with such other policies as may be established by the RCCB®.
