Certified Specialist Accounting & Finance Recertification

Description

The CSAF recertification program is recommended for active, eligible HFMA CSAF certificants with an upcoming maintenance due date of October 1, 2020*. Not sure when your CSAF expiration date is? Sign in, click your profile image in the upper right corner, select My Development, and then click on the Certifications tab near the center of the page. You'll see your certifications along with their expiration date.

HFMA requires that eligible CSAF certificants gain continuing competence in the accounting and finance arena by taking a short assessment every two years. This program provides healthcare organizations with a means to ensure that their staff has the body of knowledge necessary to meet their demands.

  • Financial Reporting: Liabilities and Long-Term Debt
  • Financial Reporting: Relationships and Procedures
  • Financial Reporting: Revenue and Assets

The passing score is 70%. If you do not pass on the first attempt, there is a mandatory 30-day waiting period. Please keep this in mind, as the deadline to complete the recertification assessment (to maintain your certification) is October 1, 2020*.

*During this unprecedented time HFMA is committed to meeting the need of its certified individuals. HFMA is implementing a certification maintenance grace period to allow for additional time to meet the recertification requirement.

Why you should replace adjusted discharges

The use of adjusted discharges as a metric of output to assess facilitywide productivity and efficiency is flawed and leads to invalid conclusions. It does not account for the increasing volume and complexity of outpatient procedures.
