How often do I need to pay the annual fee?

All certificants must pay the annual fee of $75 during the payment period of October 1–December 31 via the CAIP online recertification system every year or their credential will be revoked. There is no extension period.

I completed my Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) annual meeting evaluations but don’t see the credits in my recertification portal. Where are they?

As more IPCH providers, including ASCA, become automated in the awarding of the IPCH certificate, it is important to realize these databases are not linked to the CAIP online recertification database. This means the information will not automatically transfer, and you must personally enter the IPCHs into the CAIP online recertification system.

When will I receive my updated certificate upon the completion of my three-year recertification cycle?

Certificates are now available in your recertification portal. Once you complete your recertification cycle, a certificate, with current certification dates, will be available.

Where can I obtain my IPCHs when I can no longer submit unapproved activities?

You can submit IPCHs at any time, but you must submit all 30 IPCHs (six IPCHs in each of the five content areas) via the CAIP online recertification system by December 31 of your three-year recertification cycle or your credential will be revoked. There is no extension period.
