The differences between Certified Case Managers and Case Managers

CCMC believes that certification is valuable to case managers and knows from the growing demand for certified case managers that employers acknowledge this value as well. Our goal is to ensure that those who achieve certification possess the education, skills, and experience needed to deliver appropriate services to all they serve.

Commitment & Accountability

Case managers who have earned the Certified Case Manager (CCM®) credential have the expertise, knowledge, and professional experience to provide the right services to patients across the continuum of care, including those with serious or complex medical conditions, and/or catastrophic injuries and illnesses. The CCM® credential means that case managers are committed to uphold the highest professional and ethical standards. To maintain certification, Certified Case Managers must comply with the Code of Professional Conduct for Case Managers, which is enforced by the CCMC.

In today’s health care environment, patients/clients need an advocate on their side. A board-certified case manager is the right professional to act in an individual’s best interest in a complex and fragmented health care system to provide optimum value and desirable outcomes for all involved.
