Important Updates Regarding The New Certified Medical Administrative Assistant Programs

On July 19th, 2016 we launched the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant program. This new program will provide students with the knowledge they need in order to be a versatile and valuable member of a healthcare team. Important details about this program include:

  • Upon completion of this program, students will be prepared for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) national certification exam offered by National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
  • The exam voucher is included in the cost of the tuition of this program.
  • Additional modules were added in comparison to the Administrative Medical Specialist program to provide students with a more robust program.

The Certified Medical Administrative Assistant program will replace the current Administrative Medical Specialist program as a stand-alone title, as well as replace the Administrative Medical Specialist portion of the following bundle programs:

  • Administrative Medical Specialist with Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist + Medical Terminology
  • CPC Administrative Medical Specialist with Medical Billing and Coding
  • CBCS Administrative Medical Specialist with Medical Billing and Coding

The replacement programs will be titled:

  • Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist + Medical Terminology
  • CPC Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Medical Billing and Coding
  • CBCS Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Medical Billing and Coding

It is important to note that while these new programs are taking the place of the Administrative Medical Specialist programs, both the wholesale and suggested retail prices for all the programs will remain exactly the same.

  • Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist + Medical Terminology
    • Wholesale: $2095
    • SRP: $2495
  • CPC Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Medical Billing and Coding
    • Wholesale: $2795
    • SRP: $3195
  • CBCS Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with Medical Billing and Coding
    • Wholesale: $2295
    • SRP: $2695

We understand that you may need extra time in order to update your WIOA program submissions, MyCAA submissions and your print catalogs. In order to help accommodate you in this transition from the Administrative Medical Specialist titles to the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant programs, we have made the Administrative Medical Specialist programs available for enrollment in the Online Administration Center. These programs will remain available in the OAC until February 1, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding these new programs and the retirement of the previous programs, please contact us.
