Humana 2020 Certification and Recertification is Open!

Considering selling Humana MAPD and PDP products this year? Great! Now, earlier than ever, you can certify or recertify to sell MAPD and PDP products. As of Tuesday June 25th 12:00 PM EST, your Humana certification and recertification options are open!


Initial Certification will remain open until next summer.
Recertification Deadline: 5:00 PM EST on November 30th, 2019

Not sure which to take? Check out the Certification and Recertification Launch Page.

General Details:
Whether you’re certifying for the first time or recertifying for the 10th, you’ll need to complete two types of content: AHIP and Humana-specific training. AHIP training is required CMS-approved content focused on Medicare basics. Humana-specific training is composed of topics discussing compliance, Humana products, sales presentations and tools, and overall agent guidance. In addition to passing AHIP’s testing requirements with the first three (3) attempts, you are provided three (3) attempts to pass Humana’s final test with a score of 85% or higher. You have 45 minutes to complete each test attempt.

Note: Spanish versions will be delayed until after the June 25th launch. Look for additional communications on Spanish versions.

Certification-only: Agents who complete the 2020 initial certification are allowed to sell plans with 2019 effective dates through 12/01/2019. Remember, agents cannot sell Humana’s Medicare Advantage or PDP products until they finish certification.

AHIP is required for both Certification and Recertification. Looking to save money? AHIP can be purchased through the Care Value link for $125.00, a $50.00 discount off the original price!

After completing the AHIP training requirement, click the “send my exam completion to Humana” link at the bottom of your transcripts page. If you have taken the AHIP training through another CareValue, please access the AHIP site again via the Humana Certification or Recertification course to transfer your passing AHIP score to Humana. Once your AHIP score has been received by Humana, you will be able to move forward and complete the Humana portion of the Certification or Recertification course.
