  • As of January 1, 2006, diplomates will be automatically enrolled in the CC program upon issuance of a certification.
  • Each diplomate is assessed an annual fee for establishment and maintenance of an electronic record of certification via PATHway. The fee is $50 per year, per physician (not per certificate) and is linked to the electronic submission of each reporting form. The first payment of $100 is due at the end of the first 2-year reporting period and a fee of $100 is due at the end of each subsequent 2-year reporting period.  PATHway will require the CC payment upon submission of each electronic CC reporting form. All payments must be made online by major credit card (MasterCard, Visa, or American Express).
  • For diplomates with only non-time limited (lifetime) certificates, there is a one-time fee of $100 to enroll and initiate participation in the CC program.  As above, a fee of $100 is due at the end of each 2-year reporting period.
  • The registration fee for the CC Examination is $700.  The $700 fee covers all exams taken during the same exam session (spring or fall) regardless of the number of exams taken (primary and subspecialty).
  • Beginning January 1, 2015, a late fee of $100 will be assessed for late submission of a reporting form to be paid upon form submission.  An additional $100 late fee will be assessed for each year past the submission deadline.
  • Beginning January 1, 2015, a reinstatement fee of $500 will be assessed to any diplomate that allows certification(s) to lapse due to non-participation in CC and then is approved for reinstatement by the CC Credentials Committee during the 3-year lapsed certification grace period.
