Returns of eligible, undamaged purchases are accepted only with a return merchandise authorization (RMA). Authorization must be requested via email at purchase@ahima.org

All components included with the purchase must be included with the return. To avoid damage during return shipping, please ensure the books are properly packed to withstand shipping stresses. Please package securely and include additional packing materials as needed.

  • The RMA return request may not exceed the same product quantity of the qualifying order. However, multiple RMAs may be returned in a single package.
  • All RMA returns must include the RMA packing list.
  • If an order qualifies for a volume discount-based minimum order quantity, any returns that cause the new order quantity to fall below the qualifying quantity will result in the order being recalculated at the item’s full price. If the value of the recalculated order is below the paid original order value, the difference will be refunded. If the recalculated order balance exceeds the original paid order value, the customer will be charged the order balance unpaid.
  • Resellers requesting an RMA will receive the RMA procedures, shipping instructions, and printable RMA packing list to enclose with their returns.
