The AHIP certification will become available for 2014 on June 24th, 2013. The 2013 certification will be closing on Friday, June 21st, 2013. The certification website can be found at www.medicareonlinetraining.com
We are recommending that agents wait to begin their 2014 AHIP coursework until AFTER their top Medicare advantage carriers open their certification for 2014. If you do the certification through an insurance company’s website, often times you can get the certification at a discounted rate (generally, $100), however, if you do the AHIP certification directly, you will pay $150.
Regardless of whether you complete the AHIP directly or through a carriers website, the certificate works the same way and can be used with any company that accepts or requires the AHIP training. For example, if you complete the AHIP with Aetna, you can use the AHIP for United Healthcare, Humana, etc.
