RCC recertification is due every two years. An RCC may recertify by either retaking the examination or by obtaining continuing education credits (CEU) in radiology coding. For information on recertification by CEUs, click here. The rules for recertification by examination are as follows:
You must recertify by the examination date offered prior to the expiration date of your current certification. Current certification expires two years from the date you become certified or recertified. It is your responsibility to keep track of your certificate expiration and apply for recertification accordingly.
