Medical Assistant Credentialing and Re-credentialing

Under Stage 2 of Meaningful Use, as of January 1, 2015, a medical assistant may not enter information into an electronic prescription system until the medical assistant has been credentialed to do so by an agency unrelated to the employer.

To get credentialed or re-credentialed:

  • Download, watch and listen to the PowerPoint presentation (approximately 30 minutes in length)
    NOTE: Due to the size of the PowerPoint presentation it may take 5-20 minutes to download depending on your internet connection speed.
  • Then register for the exam. Once your registration has been processed, you will be redirected to the online exam.
