2020/2021 Humana Agent Resources and Materials
Certification/Recertification Opening June 30, 2020
AHIP is a training requirement for both Humana and MarketPoint Certification and Recertification. Here is what you need to know:
- Plan Year 2020 (PY20) AHIP training will be taken down at midnight EST on June 19, 2020.
- Plan Year 2021 (PY21) AHIP training will be launched at 8:00 AM EST on June 20, 2020.
- We will accept passing AHIP scores for up to six attempts, instead of just three as in previous years.
- We will no longer ask you to pass a 20 questions Humana test as a requirement for certification.
- Humana will no longer have separate certification if you want PDP only.
Agents who complete PY20 Certification must complete PY21 Recertification. We are advising agents who are considering completing PY20 Certification in June to consider waiting for PY21 to launch on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
AHIP is required for both Certification and Recertification. Agents typically take AHIP through Humana after they logged into training from our Humana site. If an agent goes directly to AHIP to register, the fee is $175.00 and they must have their AHIP results transferred to Humana before they can continue completing their Certification or Recertification.
IMPORTANT: We are not recommending or suggesting that agents take AHIP as soon as it is available by going directly to the AHIP site. Agents accessing AHIP through that site will be required to pay the full amount for testing. Agents who wish to receive the Humana discounted rate of $125.00 must enter AHIP through Humana MarketPoint University
COVID-19 Impact on Members:
Current member impact:
Telehealth visits will be fully covered – To support its members in social isolation and and to avoid COVID exposure for members and their physicians, Humana is encouraging members to use telehealth (either video or phone) as their first option for care, including routine visits for primary care or specialty care. We will waive our members’ out-of-pocket costs for telemedicine visits with participating in-network providers for the next 90-days, beginning March 6, 2020. This will apply to Humana’s Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and employer-plan members and is limited to in-network providers.
Preauthorizations for care have been removed in many cases. – Humana Medicare Advantage and employer-plan members who test positive for COVID-19 will not need to seek preauthorization to begin treatment immediately. For Medicaid members, please refer to your state’s specific page at Humana.com/Medicaid.
Early prescription refills allowed through July 27, 2020 – For members with prescription drug coverage, Humana is allowing early refills on prescription medicines so our members can prepare for extended supply needs — an extra 30- or 90-day supply as appropriate. (For Florida Medicaid members, early refills allowed through May 8, 2020.)
Home delivery of prescriptions may be available to members. – Humana Pharmacy, a preferred-cost sharing pharmacy on many Humana prescription drug plans, offers mail delivery for all orders submitted by a prescribing physician. Members may also check with other pharmacies that may be in their plan’s network to see if they currently offer delivery to support patients in social isolation.
Our dedicated member support line is available – Humana has trained a specialized group of call center associates to help support our members with specific coronavirus questions and concerns, including assistance in assessing their telemedicine benefits. Members can call Humana’s toll-free customer support line, which can be found on the back of their Humana member ID card, to be connected to this dedicated team of professionals.
2021 Certification & Recertification
MarketPoint Retail Sales Learning and Development is pleased to announce major changes related to Plan Year 2021 (PY21) Certification for Partner agents and Recertification for all agents.
The training department strives to improve MarketPoint’s Certification and Recertification training every year. We take the feedback from agents and partners seriously. Our goal is to improve the agent experience, provide quality training and meet the needs of Humana.
