Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) Examination Fees


There is a single fee that diplomates must pay for each 10-year MOCA cycle. This fee, due upon registration for the Cognitive Examination, covers the administration of the MOCA program for the entire 10-year period and one opportunity to take the Cognitive Examination. Diplomates registering for the 2014 or 2015 Cognitive Examinations will pay a fee of $2,100. The re-examination fee (for those who do not pass the MOCA Cognitive Examination) is $800 for 2014 or 2015.

Effective January 1, 2014, all diplomates who do not complete the MOCA program in 10 years must pay a reinstatement fee for each year (up to three years) they continue in the program (Years 11, 12 and 13). The fee is cumulative, so physicians who do not pay until Year 12 must pay the fee for each of Years 11 and 12; physicians who do not pay until Year 13 must pay the fee for each of Years 11, 12 and 13. The reinstatement fee for 2014 is $525.
