It’s that time of year. Carriers are launching their Medicare Advantage and Part D certification courses!

Did you know you can find many carriers’ 2018 Medicare certification training details in one place?

Reviewing the Medicare Agent Certification Requirements

Every year, insurance agents working in the Medicare field must certify with the carriers they represent to sell their MA plans, prescription drug plans, and select Medicare Supplements. This action is a vital step in agents becoming “ready to sell!”

Want to find many carriers’ 2018 Medicare certification training details in one place? Start here!

Many carriers require agents to complete AHIP training along with their own product training. Whether they accept and/or cover the cost of AHIP and the specifics surrounding their own compliance and product trainings vary.

Where Can You Find 2018 Medicare Certification Info?

If you’re contracted with several carriers, compiling and keeping track of all your Medicare-related sales certification and recertification details can be difficult.

Ritter Insurance Marketing’s Certification Center has many carriers’ 2018 Medicare certification start dates and links to carrier-specific Medicare training requirements in one neat table.

Start dates are available to anyone, but in order to view a carrier’s certification requirements, you must log in to RitterIM.com. If you are new to the site, you must register with RitterIM.com first.

Ritter’s staff updates the Certification Center as relevant information becomes available. If you don’t see details for a carrier you work with, it may be because Ritter hasn’t received the info yet. Keep checking back for updates!
