2025 Medicare Certification

The 2025 Medicare Certification is quickly closing in and Advocate Financial is here to make sure all agents are ready for the certification process! 

As the 2025 Medicare certification season draws near, it is essential for agents to get ready for the upcoming AHIP (America's Health Insurance Plans) and NABIP (National Association of Business Insurance Professionals) certifications, which will be available in just over a month. Agents tend to choose to wait on starting the certification process until major carriers release their specific training for the 2025 season, this is usually because those specific carriers offer discounted trainings through their portals. 

What is AHIP and NABIP?

AHIP (America's Health Insurance Plans)

Established in 2003 through the merger of the Health Insurance Association of America and the American Association of Health Plans, AHIP offers Medicare training that is recognized by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) and accepted by all Medicare insurance carriers nationwide. AHIP certification is a crucial credential for agents, ensuring compliance and proficiency in the Medicare market. 

NABIP (National Association of Business Insurance Professionals)

Founded in 1930, NABIP is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting the interests of those engaged in selling health insurance products and services. NABIP has a nationwide presence with numerous chapters supporting its mission. In recent years, NABIP introduced its Medicare training program, providing an alternative to AHIP and enhancing competitive options for agents.
