- You are NOT required to be contracted (appointed) with Aetna to complete their certifications for Part-C (Medicare Advantage Plans - MA) and Part-D (Medicare Prescription Drug Plans - PDP), or to be able to use the $50 discount on the AHIP.
- Before beginning the AHIP, you will need to register on the Aetna Certifications Site: https://aetna.cmpsystem.com
- Full training and certification information is available here.
- Once you are registered on the certification site, you will need to click on the AHIP link in order to be redirected to the AHIP site, at which point you will need to register here. You will then receive the $50 discount on the course.
