COVID-19 – National Clinical Coding Qualification September 2020 Update

With regret, we have now had to make the decision to cancel this September’s NCCQ examinations.   We are aware of the importance of these examinations to many of you and we have not taken this decision lightly.  We did think we would be able to go ahead but having recently checked with our venues none will now be open by September.  Travel arrangements are also still very unclear and the prospect of local lockdowns makes the situation far too precarious to consider going ahead.  The safety of all concerned must be our top priority.

We are currently looking at how we can deliver these examinations in a different way and any changes we make will be communicated to you at the earliest opportunity.  Your registration will be carried over to March 2021 and for candidates that are close to having to re-take the whole examination the entire year of 2020 is null and void so will not count towards your timeframe.

The IHRIM Board is grateful for your understanding in these difficult times.
