MMI Member FAQ

Do you require your existing RMC certified members to take an ICD-10 proficiency exam to retain their credentials?

Because MMI already requires an annual update exam to renew the RMC Certification, we are not requiring members to take a separate ICD-10 proficiency exam. The annual update exam (beginning on October 1st) will incorporate the ICD-10-CM code set. 

When does my membership/certification expire?  

Your renewal date is the day that you passed the initial certification exam (RMC, RMM, RMA or RMB). It is available on your membership card, which is mailed to you each year.

Note: If you have misplaced your card, feel free to email an MMI Representative at or call 866-892-2765. 

Will I receive notifications that my membership and certification is about to expire? 

A renewal reminder will be sent to you 90, 60 and 30 days before your renewal date each year via email & mail.

I passed my renewal date for my RMC, RMM, RMA and/or RMB certification. What do I do?

You will need to purchase a 30, 60, or 90 day extension. This will give you 30, 60, or 90 days past your renewal date to complete the entire renewal process. If you pass your renewal date by more than 90 days, you will need to re-take the initial certification exam. You can click here to be redirected to the extension options.


What materials do I need to take the update exam? 

The current year's medical coding books (CPT®, ICD-10, HCPCS II) as well as MMI’s monthly newsletter, the Medical Business Journal.

How many attempts do I have to take the RMC update exam?

You will have 2 attempts at the online update exam and 24 hours for each one.

Can you tell me what questions I got wrong on my exam?

How many CEUs do I need to submit each year to keep my credentials current and up-to-date? 

12 CEUs are required annually for one credential and 6 additional CEUs are required for each additional credential you hold.

Example: If you hold the RMC credential, you must submit 12 CEUs. If you add on the RMM credential, you will need to add on an additional 6 CEUs for a total of 18 CEUs to submit each year.

I was in the middle of taking my exam and Internet went out. Are my answers lost?

No, the learning site automatically saves your answers throughout the exam. You are able to log back into the learning site and resume the exam where you left off.
