California Medical Association (CMA) Accredited providers should have received an invoice directly from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education’s (ACCME) for your 2023 State Accredited Providers Fee. ACCME sent out invoices to the primary and billing contacts for each CMA accredited CME provider the first week of November with payment due January 31, 2023. If you have not received your invoice, please contact email@example.com, so they can reissue your invoice.
The ACCME utilizes a tiered fee structure for annual accreditation fees to reflect programs of different sizes. The fee is based on data reported for the 2019-2021 reporting years in Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) data. Provider organization tiers are calculated by the using the higher of either the average number of activities or average learner interactions over the past three years.
This is a separate fee from CMA’s annual accreditation fee that will be billed in spring of 2023. CMA will continue to work with ACCME to ensure accredited providers comply with fee requirements.
