The Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist® course is the only one that offers continuing education credits to ensure that participants are up to date on best practices and case studies.

Our program is unique because our instructors are specialists in the field of Healthcare Reform who understand the timeline of implementation of different healthcare reform laws, the mandated benefits and compliance deadlines, and understand the effects and implications of healthcare reform and how to implement the best strategy for it. The program does not cover theoretical or hypothetical situations. They are not vendors, service providers, or consultants who are selling the services. Participants are learning best practices from actual industry professionals that are experts in understanding current trends, rules and regulations.

The HealthCare Reform Center and Policy Institute and National Healthcare Reform Magazine has spent the last 6 years developing the Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist® certification. We partnered with senior leaders from some of the most successful industry leading companies to incorporate industry best practices. In collaboration with one another, we’ve put together very topical and industry specific information for this program. The Healthcare Reform Magazine was created as the main source of information for employers, consultants, health insurance agents, insurance companies, healthcare providers, governmental entities and other industry stakeholders.

It’s designed to provide a central point of education and information for the implications of the law. Our Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist® course is the most comprehensive program available and will give you an actual designation that will not only be helpful to build your knowledge base but to develop you into a more marketable individual as well. Recipients of the certification must pass a comprehensive exam showing a thorough understanding of healthcare reform current trends, rules and regulations. Certification is not granted to those who simply “sit in” on the certification programs. Exam questions are developed through the Healthcare Reform Certification and Education Committee which is made up of professionals who are experts in healthcare reform. Our program is the only one which offers continuing education credits to ensure that participants stay up-to-date on industry best practices and case studies.

Becoming a Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist® by the National Healthcare Reform Magazine, is one of the best ways to advance your career by setting yourself apart and gaining that competitive edge and knowledge of the law. The Certified Healthcare Reform Specialist® certification is designed to bring you the most up-to-date information about healthcare reform, including new rules and regulations, PPACA, and the implications of healthcare reform for employer groups and how they can best prepare and implement the best strategies to deal with the change.
