Blue Cross 2022 Medicare Certication Training

Dear Producers, We are pleased to announce that the 2022 Medicare certification training will be available to producers in July.



2022 Medicare certification training will be available soon.

The annual mandatory training will include two sections: the AHIP and the HCSC curricula. Sections 1 and 2 must be completed by individual producers and sub-producers including all agency principals. All producers must complete all courses in order to be deemed certified to sell 2022 MAPD/PDP plans.


June 21st, 2021 AHIP Training Begins

The AHIP training will be available on June 21st, 2021. Once again, HCSC has negotiated a lower rate for our contracted producers. The AHIP discounted rate for our producers is $125 instead of $175. In order to receive the discounted rate, you must use the AHIP/HCSC partner link we’ll provide at a later date.

July 7th, 2021 HCSC Training Begins (Tentative)

The second section of the training including the HCSC training and other required forms will launch on July 7th. All producers must complete the training prior to marketing/selling 2022 MAPD/PDP plans.


The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, as well as HCSC, requires producers to complete the annual training process in accordance with CMS regulations at Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 417, 422, and 423.


2021 Medicare Curriculum Announcement

The 2021 AHIP course will not be available after June 17th, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

Producers who wish to complete the 2021 MAPD/PDP curriculum may instead take the 2022 AHIP course along with the 2021 Blue Cross Medicare Options plan course, exam and forms. As of Wednesday, July 7th, producers seeking to complete the 2021 training will be assigned a dual plan year curriculum for both 2021 and 2022. The combined curriculum will satisfy the certification requirement for both 2021 and 2022.

Your Medicare Renewal Compensation

All producers must be certified by December 31st, 2021 to retain all prior year renewals (exemptions apply for PDP plans sold between 2006 and 2008).

Stay Tuned!

In the next few weeks, you will be receiving a series of emails with updates and more detailed instructions on how to complete your certification.

”Training on Us Program“ will launch soon! To learn more on how we may cover your 2023 AHIP Course costs, look out for additional information in future communications.
