Can I count CEU’s from past Replay club quizzes before I am certified?

A: Unfortunately, you can’t submit CEUs that were earned before your certification date.

AAPC CEU POLICY

  • CEUs must come from the AAPC Approved vendor list.
  • CEUs must be earned and submitted within your two-year renewal period. Excess CEUs do not carry over to the next renewal period.
  • CEUs earned within your renewal month can apply to either the current submission or the next
  • AAPC awards all CEUs based on completion date except for Healthcare Business Monthly Test Yourself quizzes, which are awarded based on publication date (be sure to only use issues from your specific time-frame).
  • Effective April 30, 2012, AAPC will charge a $50 CEU extension fee. To avoid this extension fee, stay current on your CEUs and submit them on time. If a CEU extension is needed at the end of your renewal period, please contact AAPC to purchase your extension. CEUs earned after your due date will be limited to AAPC education.
