To maintain your RAC-CT certification, you must recertify every two years. The current recertification requirements include taking and passing exams for the following two courses (2.6 CEs):
- RAC-CT 3.0 Recertification: Updates and Managing PDPM in the Skilled Nursing Facility (CEs – 1.0)
- RAC-CT 3.0 Recertification: Common Coding Errors and Quality Measure Pitfalls 1.1 (CEs – 1.6)
These courses will help you:
- Promote person-centered care and honor resident voice and choice with knowledge of how MDS 3.0 integrates with survey, resident care, finances, and publicly reported information
- Synthesize Quality Measure data into care plans and interventions to improve resident outcomes
- Understand how to correctly code activities of daily living (ADLs) on the MDS 3.0 and avoid common coding errors
- Tackle the challenges of the recent RAI User's Manual updates head-on by understanding the most significant changes to SNF PPS
- Discover solutions to PPS scheduled and unscheduled assessment challenges with case study driven learning
If you do not meet the recertification requirements within 30 days after the expiration date of your certification, you will no longer be entitled to use the RAC-CT credential. If you choose to recertify after the 30-day grace period, you will be required to take and pass the final exams for the complete 10-course RAC-CT certification program.
Don't wait to complete your recertification. You'll still receive the Oct. 2019 updates when available.
