A Care Manager is a health and human services specialist who is engaged in a collaborative process of assessment, planning, coordinating, monitoring, and advocacy. Care management is a person-centered, culturally responsive approach that considers the biopsychosocial-spiritual aspects of the client and client system.
The goals of care management are to promote the health and well-being of the client and client system and assist the client to effectively access the services and supports they need to achieve their goals.
NACCM ensures that Care Managers are qualified to perform the full range of care management tasks through a validated, standardized examination. Consumers, employers, and other professionals can be confident in their choice when selecting a Care Manager who holds the CMC credential.
All CMC Candidates must meet rigorous education, experience, and supervision requirements to qualify for the exam. Candidates are tested on the four NACCM Content Domains unique to care management. The test is administered by an independent testing company.
In order to maintain certification, CMCs are required to participate in continuing education and professional development. Certification is renewed every three years to ensure that Care Managers are practicing at the highest professional level.
