Researchers in California suggest that the 2015 version of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) maintenance-of-certification (MOC) program will generate considerable costs, mostly due to demands on physician time. The study team estimated that internists will incur an average of $23,607 over 10 years, ranging from $16,725 for general internists to $40,495 for hematologists/oncologists. Time costs were estimated to account for 90% of MOC costs.
