Get ready, get set: 2016 certification for Aetna and Coventry Individual Medicare products kicks off July 10
Starting July 10, you can complete the 2016 annual certification process for Aetna and Coventry Individual Medicare products (MA/MAPD, PDP).
You must successfully complete the Aetna Individual Medicare annual certification process and meet all contracting requirements prior to marketing or selling Aetna or Coventry Individual Medicare products (MA, MAPD and PDP) during the Annual Election Period for January 1 effective dates and throughout the year.
Uplines and principals must be fully licensed, appointed and certified in all states and markets where their downline agents or employees intend to sell. Payees must be fully certified in all states were the products for which they are receiving commissions are sold.
To receive renewal commission next January for business sold in prior years, you must complete the annual certification process by December 31. You must also be licensed and appointed with us.
Just login to our certification site at: https://aetna.cmpsystem.com/ext/ahip/login.php.
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.
How do I complete 2016 MA/MAPD local market product training?
New this year, for your convenience, MA/MAPD local market product trainings can be completed online, right on the certification site.
Will 2015 certification remain available on the certification site after 2016 certification launches?
Yes. 2015 certification will remain available on the certification site, along with 2016 certification, for the remainder of 2015.
I'm a new agent and want to sell 2015 and 2016 products. Do I have to complete both the 2015 and 2016 certification processes?
Yes. You'll only have to complete the 2016 AHIP courses and exam once (2016 AHIP will satisfy the AHIP requirement for 2015 and 2016 certification), but you must still complete all of the other 2015 and 2016 certification components.
We look forward to working with you in preparation for the 2016 selling season!
