MA/MAPD certification components
AHIP Medicare training and exam: This course has five modules. The final exam requires a passing score of 90% or better within three attempts and includes Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) training and a test.
The AHIP final exam costs $125. (Except for 2019 Front Runners. For Front Runners, the cost is FREE.)
If you’re recertifying and you completed last year’s AHIP training requirements, you can follow a recertification track of modules 4-5 only, plus the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse training/exam. You should still reacquaint yourself with modules 1-3, since the final exam covers all five modules.
Core training and exam: Provides a high-level view of Aetna’s Code of Conduct and Medicare Compliance Program to satisfy annual CMS certification requirements.
FDR attestation: An attestation for First Tier, Downstream and Related Entities.
Market-specific training attestation: An attestation acknowledging that you'll need to complete market-specific training for every state and market where you plan to sell. To find and register for a market-specific training, visit AetnaMedicareAgentTraining.com and search for events by state.
Third-party website attestation: An attestation for contracted agent/brokers and entities who use a website to reference or promote MA/MAPD plans, or to obtain beneficiary information for the purposes of marketing or enrollment into an Individual Medicare plan.
MA/MAPD overview training and exam: Offers a high-level look at Aetna and Coventry Individual MA/MAPD and Medicare Supplement products to satisfy annual CMS certification requirements. Also includes the Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) training.
Can my AHIP certification be transferred to Aetna?
Yes, as long as you earn a score of 90% or better on the final exam within three attempts. You may transfer your existing AHIP certification to us through our certification site. You must still complete the other Aetna-specific requirements to finish the Aetna Individual Medicare annual certification process
We look forward to working with you to prepare for the 2020 selling season!
