In my opinion, AAHAM certification is second to none for anyone involved in revenue cycle management. Over the years, the industry has developed a much clearer understanding of what AAHAM certification means. It's become a real asset to advance your career.
At under $200 a year, nothing gives you better bang for your buck than AAHAM membership
As an AAHAM member, you meet a lot of people involved in the revenue cycle from coast to coast. If you ever have a problem, or a question, you can just pick up the phone and ask them about it: "What have you heard about this?' How are you handling that?" If you were not involved with AAHAM, you wouldn't know who to call.
Given that the cost of membership is under two hundred dollars, in my opinion nothing in the revenue cycle industry gives you better bang for your buck. You'd really be a fool not to join. With other industry associations, if you look at a pie chart of what they cover, the revenue cycle is just a small slice. With AAHAM, it's one hundred percent.
And here's one more thing potential members should know: being involved with AAHAM is a hell of a lot of fun. The people involved are extremely interesting and fun. I've made some of my closest friends through my involvement with AAHAM.
