AHIP Certification for our Partners

America’s Health Insurance Plan (AHIP) Certification satisfies the requirement for the following UnitedHealthcare Medicare Solutions Certification Modules: Medicare Basics, Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. If you choose to certify via AHIP, you need to transmit the 2017 AHIP Certification before any other 2017 modules have been started. Failure to do so will result in AHIP score rejection.


A summary of the steps to certify is as follows:



You must complete all prerequisite tests by passing with a score of 85% or higher within 6 attempts. If you fail any prerequisite test, you will not be able to proceed to any product module or test and will not be able to market or sell any UnitedHealthcare Medicare Solutions product for the applicable plan year.

The following prerequisite tests must be taken in order:

  • Medicare Basics
  • Ethics and Compliance
  • AARP Course

An Agent must choose whether to pursue America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Certification before starting the 2017 Medicare Basics Test. If an Agent completes AHIP certification, they will get credit for Medicare Basics, Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans upon completion of the other two prerequisites tests.


You must complete the product test(s) by passing with a score of 85% or higher within 6 attempts or you are not allowed to sell the applicable product for the applicable plan year.
