Chapter Package Pricing - Business Of Health Care Licenses

Administration of Chapter Business of Health Care (Module I of CHFP program) program Licenses - The discounted chapter package pricing helps chapters purchase multiple licenses for members at a discount. HFMA National previously managed the assignment and tracking of all licenses on behalf of the chapter. HFMA recently streamlined the process for chapters by allowing chapters to assign the licenses themselves using the HFMA "Institute Portal". The new institute function is easy to use and allows the appointed chapter administrator to be in control. A major benefit for chapters is the ability to run status reports.
