Medicare updates

2024 Medicare recertification – product training

Our product training is now underway. Select Health will accept both AHIP and NABIP (formerly NAHU) for certification. The Select Health product training module is now available.

This module must be completed by all Medicare appointed agents to be considered ready to sell for 2024.

  • Both AHIP and NABIP (formerly NAHU) certification are accepted and approved for Select Health.
  • When beginning your certification with either of these organizations, choose to electronically submit your results to Select Health. There is no need to submit your certificate. You can log back in to either site to request the results be sent.
  • Please remember that you must complete one of these certifications prior to completing our product certification.

Product training must be completed by December 31, 2023, to be ready to sell 2024 plans January 1.

To get a jump on training, agents can complete product training in one of two ways, the choice is yours!

  • Option 1 – Annual product training is now available and contains plan details and benefit information for 2023. With our 5-star rating, there’s nearly six months of selling opportunity remaining.
  • Option 2 – Beginning September 1, 2023, product training will be updated to contain our 2024 product details. Agents can choose to complete the module now to satisfy the requirement and be considered ready to sell for 2024. New agents that complete the module will be considered ready to sell for 2023 and 2024. Agents who wish to view the module with the 2024 benefits can complete the module beginning September 1.

Please note: 2024 benefit information will be emailed to all agents who complete the product training module prior to September 1, 2023.

Remember, agents must be licensed, appointed, and certified with 2023 AHIP or NABIP certification training prior to completing our product training module. Contact for appointment.

Obtaining approval for the use of Medicare card image from CMS

Select Health Medicare was notified by CMS on June 28, 2023, of the following requirement:

Third-Party Maintenance Organizations (TPMOs) and agents must request approval from CMS to place a Medicare ID card image on materials.

To request permission to use a Medicare ID card image,

  1. Send an email to the Medicare marketing mailbox at with an attached copy of the material showing the Medicare ID card image.
  2. Receive either an approval or disapproval from the marketing mailbox.
  3. If approved, send the same marketing piece and approval email permitting the use of the Medicare card image in a zip drive when filing in HPMS.

FOR TPMOs ONLY: CMS is recommending that plans add a disclaimer in the vicinity of the Medicare card image that indicates they are not affiliated or endorsed by CMS, HHS, the Federal Government, etc.

A missing disclaimer near the Medicare card image may indicate that the approval process was bypassed resulting in additional follow-up by the reviewer.
