Certified Revenue Cycle Associate (CRCA)

Program Information

Program Details
The Certified Revenue Cycle Associate (CRCA) program began in 2006. To date, 410 graduates can boast their CRCA credentials. CRCA is an ideal training and certification program for Hospital Revenue Cycle Staff including:

• Patient Access Staff
• Patient Accounting Staff
• Customer Service Staff
• Revenue Cycle Facilitators

The CRCA Training Manual and corresponding examination addresses relevant topics within the Revenue Cycle including Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, Legal and Compliance related issues, and HIPAA. Achieving CRCA certification demonstrates a strong understanding of the Revenue Cycle and dedication to personal and professional growth. Time spent to prepare and sit for the exam requires commitment, but we believe the return on investment is extremely worthwhile. Individuals obtaining CRCA designation will have the satisfaction of completing a rigorous certification program, but also gain an added competitive edge in the healthcare industry.
