PDP Certification: AHIP
Before selling 2020 SilverScript PDP all agents need to be appointed with Aetna. (Note: Any principal with downline agents writing SilverScript PDP plans must also certify for AHIP 2020 plans.) When Aetna merged with CVS Health, Aetna had to dissolve its PDP because CVS also marketed Silverscript. Having one carrier – Aetna – with two dominant PDP plans on the market was viewed as a monopoly and an antitrust violation. Therefore now Silverscript agents need to appoint with Aetna.
After you contract with Aetna, it’s time to complete 2020 SilverScript certification. Just follow these steps:
Log in to Producer World and click “Individual Medicare” at the top of the page. Under Quick Links click “SilverScript Agent Portal.”
Next, you’ll need to choose a new username and password for the SilverScript Agent Portal, and attest to the site attestation. IMPORTANT: Even if you have an existing username and password for the SilverScript site, you must create a new username/password through this process. Otherwise, you can’t access 2020 certification.
From the SilverScript Agent Portal homepage, click “Tools” and then “Training and Certification.”
Select “Launch Training.”
Next, you’ll need to complete each training module and pass the exams with a 90%. Please note: There are separate certification processes for Aetna MA/MAPD and SilverScript PDP. Completing 2020 Aetna certification does not satisfy the certification requirement for SilverScript.
Once you’re contracted and certified, if you’re a writing agent, you’ll receive a ready-to-sell email notification from us confirming that you’re ready to sell 2020 SilverScript PDP.
