exam you have scheduled/ are authorized to test.
The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information
Management (CCHIIM) is suspending administration of the Certified Coding
Specialist (CCS) examination in your country. CCHIIM has sole and
independent authority in all matters pertaining to the certification of
Health Informatics and Information Management professionals.
This action has been taken due to concerns over exam security and will
continue until the security and integrity of the CCS exam is once again
As a result, your upcoming CCS exam appointment is being cancelled, but
your exam fee will be completely refunded.
In addition, you will be contacted once the CSS exam is again made
available so you can reschedule your test.
As always, if it is determined that any individuals have been involved
in a breach of exam security or any other exam-related irregular
behavior, CCHIIM will take appropriate action-which may include
cancellation of exam scores, revocation of certification, permanent
denial of future eligibility for certification, and legal action.
We regret any inconvenience to you resulting from this action. However,
we're taking these measures to ensure that the CCS credential maintains
its value within the healthcare industry and continues to represent our
commitment to protecting public health.
