New Year, New Certification

By | December 17, 2021

HFMA has launched the new Certified Specialist Payment & Reimbursement (CSPR) certification program. Those who earn this certification will have demonstrated specialist-level knowledge of the managed care environment, payment rates, benefit coordination, reimbursement models, cost-control incentives, legislative changes, and more. The content is somewhat different to the Certified Specialist Managed Care (CSMC) program, contains some clarifications, updated references throughout, new interactions, and new sections to include information on Transparency and The No Surprises Act (NSA). To enroll and access more details click here.

This new CSPR program replaces the Certified Specialist Managed Care (CSMC), but access to CSMC does not go away for current CSMC enrollees. As a current participant in the CSMC certification program, enrollees may access and finish the CSMC program in their eLearning account. If your chapter/region is hosting CSMC training and has candidates working through the program currently, they will not lose access. Should you have any questions about this process, the CSMC or CSPR program, please contact us at
