PCMH Tool Box
The Patient Centered Medical Home is fast becoming an important part of practices nationwide. In fact, Rhode Island is well established as a front-runner in implementation of the practice. We plan to become more involved in process and as we become more involved, we will post useful PCMH information on this page. Please let us know if you have specific questions firstname.lastname@example.org.

Base exam fees included in the table below apply to initial certification candidates, retakers, candidates on the Pay-as-you-go MC-FP payment plan, and MC-FP Entry and Re-Entry candidates. Candidates who have chosen the annual, process, stage, or full prepayment MC-FP plans will not owe the base exam fee as these plans incorporate the exam fee in the MC-FP payments; however, late fees may apply to all candidates. To review the specific fees that apply to your examination, please login to your portfolio, start the exam application, and review the fee details.
