Changes in 2017!

  • Six attempts to take the assessment – This year you will have six attempts to complete the assessment with a passing score. Each time you launch the assessment an attempt is counted, whether you complete the assessment or not. NOTE: Be sure to schedule uninterrupted time in order to complete the entire assessment without losing an attempt.
  • CMS now requires agents to take a Fraud Waste and Abuse training on their website as a part of the agent 2017 certification requirements. Previously, fraud waste and abuse content was included in the UnitedHealthcare Ethics and Compliance certification module. As a result of this change from CMS, this content was removed from our Ethics and Compliance module and replaced with specific instructions and a link to access the new training. An attestation statement about the new CMS Fraud Waste and Abuse training has been added to the “Pledge of Compliance” agreement. Learn more
  • Question level feedback – Upon answering a question, immediate feedback will let you know if you answered the question correctly or incorrectly. This will be helpful to know to focus your review of the modules, in the event you should need to take the assessment again.

UnitedHealthcare will once again accept America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) certification and AHIP re-certification in place of the UnitedHealthcare 2017 Medicare Basics, 2017 Medicare Advantage Plans and 2016 Medicare Part D Plans certification modules. Learn More about AHIP¬†certification

 

Don’t delay, you may begin marketing 2017 plans on October 1, 2016. Ensure that you are ready when that date rolls around by completing certification early- beginning June 27, 2016!
