The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) recently announced that beginning in 2018, its fee schedule for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program will include two components: an annual program fee, due within each calendar year, and an assessment fee, which is paid when you register for a traditional ABIM MOC exam or the new ABIM Knowledge Check-In.

The MOC program fee is $155 per year, regardless of how many certifications are maintained. A 20% discount on the annual program fee is available by paying early. ABIM indicates that the total costs for the Knowledge Check-In and traditional MOC exam are the same.
