It’s finally here……the start of the 2019 AEP! I don’t know about you, but time sure flew.There are SIGNIFICANT CHANGES THIS YEAR TO THE AHIP. Please make sure to read this email in its entirety as it will help you get prepared for 2019.You will also be receiving a number of emails in the coming days regarding the Anthem certification process. This email should give you a start and a heads-up on a few things so let’s get started….
Here’s what you need to know:
Certification opened June 27, 2018!
Completed certification taken after June 27, 2018 allows you to sell for the remainder for 2018 AND 2019.
AHIP has UPDATED the information in various sections to include new legislation. So please add more time. See below for more details.
Risk Prevention – 20 question exam must score 100%
Sales Event Reporting – 10 questions must score 90%
Tools for Compliant Selling – 15 questions must score 100%
HMO – 10 questions must score 90%
PDP – 10 questions must score 90%
PPO 10 questions must score 90%
SNP – 10 questions must score 90%
YOUR 2018 CERTIFICATION IS COMPLETE WHEN IT SHOWS SOLID GREEN BARS AT 100% FOR THE FOLLOWING:
2019 Compliance Training
2019 PDP- We offer stand-alone Prescription Drug Plans in all 88 OH counties. ALL agents should take this module.
2019 PPO- We offer Regional PPO plans in ALL 88 OH counties. ALL agents should take this module.
2019 DSNP(I highly recommend taking this module in the event you run across an opportunity mid-year. If you do not take this training BEFORE SELLING a DSNP HMO plan, the policy is NON-Commissionable, it is a CMS violation and you are out of compliance.)
Information You Need to Know
Once your certification is complete, within 48 hours, you will receive an email informing you that you are good to go, meaning Ready-To-Sell. This email will also include the link to Custom Point and your login information.
If you do NOT receive this email, AND you show green status bars on all modules for 2018, please contact Broker Support at 800-633-4368 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
