Complete and Pass AHIP Medicare Training
Now that you are a licensed insurance agent, your eligibility to sell Medicare is based on passing another test with 90% or better. This is the annual Medicare training and certification through America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).
It is important to understand that selling certain Medicare products requires special certification as determined by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS regulates Medicare plans, the insurance companies, agents, and agencies who sell them.
AHIP certification usually begins in late June or early July for the following Medicare plan year.
For example, if you take your certification exam in late June or July 2023, you are likely being certified to sell the 2024 product to eligible seniors during the 2024 annual enrollment period.
The annual AHIP certification exam comes with fee of $175 each year. However, we offer a $50 AHIP discount.
