2021 AHIP, Company Certifications, Expansions and First Looks

With the 2021 AEP upon us, now is a great time to make sure you are preparing and staying ahead of the curve. AHIP Medicare Training has been released and we are also starting to get details on carrier-specific certifications as well as 2021 plan benefits and roll-out dates. Take a look at what is available now and keep a look out for future updates as we get closer to AEP.

2021 AHIP Training

Precision Senior Marketing is proud to be able to help support our agents that sell Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans. That's why our agents will be able to access AHIP's 2021 Medicare certification for only $125. That's a $50 savings to you just for being part of our team.


As an added "Thank You" to our writing agents we would like to pay for 100% of your AHIP costs after you have five issued 2020 Medicare Advantage enrollments. Ask your Marketer for details. *This is only available to street level agents contracted directly with Precision Senior Marketing.

2021 Carrier Specific Certifications

To keep things simple, we have all the carrier specific certification instructions available on our certification page. Most will require you complete AHIP in advance, but not all. Please take the time to review the requirements for the different carriers you represent.
