2013 AHIP Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D Certification Training

NEW OFFER:  Click here to learn about our 2013 AHIP Medicare Training Reimbursement Offer!

Here is some general information regarding the 2013 AHIP Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D General Compliance Traning:

  • The general website is https://www.ahipmedicaretraining.com.
  • If you have registered in the past, your username is your National Producer Number (NPN).  You can find your NPN by searching here.
  • If you haven’t passed the AHIP exam in 2012, you will need to take all 5 modules for 2013 before you are allowed to take the exam.  If you passed the exam in 2012, you will only need to take modules 4 and 5.  IMPORTANT:  The exam will cover all 5 modules, so even if you passed in a prior year, you should review modules 1, 2 and 3.
  • You can save a PDF copy of the 5 modules for self-study or print the slides.  The link is on the left bar after you click on a module..  Just right click and save to your hard drive or left click and print.  The PDF copy of the study modules DO NOT have the practice questions (see next bullet).
  • When clicking through the study modules, you can skip the practice questions, but you really shouldn’t.  Answering the practice questions wrong has no impact passing the AHIP, so don’t worry if you get the practice answers wrong.  Take your time with the practice questions and make sure you understand why each answer is correct.
  • The cost of the training is $150 if you do the training through the https://www.ahipmedicaretraining.com website.  DON’T!!  Generally, you can find the training for $100 (save $50) by going through a insurance company’s certification website.
  • Even if you take AHIP through a carrier’s website, you can use the AHIP training for ALL companies who require the 2013 AHIP for General Compliance Certification.
  • You get 3 attempts to pass the training with a score of 90%.  If you don’t pass on the first 3 attempts, you will have to pay another fee to try the test again.  IMPORTANT:  Many companies will not accept the AHIP test results if you don’t pass on one of the first 3 attempts.
  • Many companies will offer a “reimbursement” in addition to the reduced rate for AHIP.  My suggestion is to do a little “shopping” and certify with the carrier who you believe you will be doing some business with.  Generally, the reimbursement is based on submitting a small number of applications.  However, you will not qualify for the reimbursement unless you do the initial AHIP certification through that insurance company’s certification portal.
  • Ritter will be posting detailed information on each carrier’s certification process as the details come available.  To find the certification process you are looking for, go to www.ritterim.com and search for “Certification” or click here.  (Adding the carrier’s name will improve your search results!)
  • Some states will allow you to collect CE credits for passing AHIP.  There is an additional cost if you want to get these credits.  Make sure your state accepts them before you pay the fee!

Good Luck!

  • What’s up all, here every person is sharing these kinds of
    know-how, thus it’s nice to read this website, and I used to pay a quick visit this weblog everyday.

  • I enjoy reading through your internet site. Thank you so much!

  • I am receiving a 84 and a 85 only have one more time to get the 90. what so confusing is that I look back at the answers according to the modules and it appears my answers are correct. Very frustrating to say the least. Any suggestions I have tried to study the material several times and as you know it does not tell you what areas you got wrong. So what can I do on my end to assure a passing score pass this point

      Hi Ganesh,

      Please share the knowledge about AHIP (AHM 250 & 540) exams. I am from chennai

  • Hi, I tried the final exam of AHIP but got only 72%. But the point is how do I find out which answers were answered wrongly, because if I were to sit for it again, I might enter the same answers. Hope the experienced agents can give some suggesions. Thank u.

    Does 2013 AHIP Medicare Training allow an agent to complete a 2012 PDP sale?

    • Anne:

      That would really depend on the carrier. In all cases, you would need to do product training for PDP in addition to AHIP, so AHIP alone will not suffice. That said, most PDP carriers will give you some training credit for doing the AHIP. Also, some carriers allow the 2013 training to qualify you to sell the 2012 products and some do not.

      Long story short, it’s really a carrier specific question

  • Why is it taking so long to be appointed by wellpoint in the state of Ohio? I need it to say “yes” ASAP. I have some appointments coming up and I can’t sell until it says “yes.” I have passed everything, done with all my training. Why are the carriers so slow with certification and appointments in some states? Aetna is another slow one. Anything I can do to expedite process?

  • Just wondering…I have completed 5 of the 5 modules for AHIP and now reviewing again. When I take final test, will it tell me which questions I missed, if any?

    • AHIP will not specifically tell you which questions you missed.

    I am in a predicament. I need to take the AHIP certification. Time is of the
    essence because I want to sell for Humana and their last training days of
    in class is Tues and Wed of next week. in Colorado Springs. It is l30 miles from where I live. I had made plans to fly to Houston on Thursday for a women’s retreat which is all booked. I have just been approved for Humana on the insurance side for people under 65 but not
    for the Medicare side. I have passed all the modules on the Medicare side
    for United Health Care (Secure Horizons) so several of those modules I can
    use for passing on the AHIP side. I NEED TO GET CLEARED ON THE

        Hi, thank you for responding. I was able to get to Humana and got an agent
        I.D. today and am moving forward with the AHIP exam material. I would not
        register because of needing soc sec and personal info. I am dubious. I do not
        do facebook, just e-mail.Thanks for responding
