About BMSC

The Board of Medical Specialty Coding & Compliance (BMSC) is the credentialing arm of the Association of Home Care Coding & Compliance (AHCC), an education and training division of DecisionHealth, LLC. Currently, BMSC offers four home health professional credentials and three certificate programs.

BMSC’s mission is to lead coders, clinicians, and compliance professionals in advancing their professional practice and standards in the delivery of quality diagnostic coding, accuracy of OASIS data set collection, and adherence to official rules and guidelines.

Credentials are earned by taking an examination that tests a candidate's knowledge of the subject matter, as well as his or her ability to accurately apply the knowledge in a workplace setting. To learn about BMSC's available credentials, visit Get Credentialed.
