Medicare/Medicaid updates.

Medicare Recertification.

As we near preparation for our recertification process, here are a few helpful hints. 

  • Select Health accepts both AHIP and NABIP Medicare certification trainings. 
  • 2025 AHIP or NABIP training must be completed prior to beginning the Select Health product training. 
  • The Select Health Product Training module will be available toward the end of July; watch for a communication coming soon. 
  • To be Ready to Sell (RTS) for 2025, both the AHIP or NABIP and the Select Health product training must be completed prior to December 31, 2024.
  • Both AHIP and NABIP send an electronic communication to Select Health as agents complete the training pending this option has been selected prior to completion. Please double-check to ensure Select Health has been selected to send results through to us. When we receive the electronic communication of completion, it is not necessary to send your certificate. It is still a good idea to keep a copy of your completion confirmation.
  • Agents must be licensed and appointed to sell Select Health. To become appointed, please contact Agent.Experience@selecthealth.org
  • As in the past, the link to the 2025 product training module will be housed in the Select Health Link Agent Portal. It will be posted toward the end of July, watch for information coming soon. Please be sure to log in to the portal at: selecthealth.org/link/manage ahead of time to be sure you don’t need assistance with your login credentials. If you’ve forgotten your username, please contact Agent Experience 800-442-5306, option 3. If you have trouble with 2-step verification, please contact our help desk at 801-442-7702, option 2. Be sure to mention you’re an external agent user.

As a reminder, Select Health Medicare is a 5-star plan and can be marketed year-round. Stars are evaluated by Medicare every year. The 2024, 5-star enrollment period will end November 31, 2024 for 2024 plans. 2025 Stars ratings will be announced prior to AEP. We look forward to another successful selling season!

Sales Material Distribution.

Part D EOB Distribution Update.

We want to inform you about a situation that may affect your members' experience with Part D Explanation of Benefits (EOBs). Your clients may receive all their Part D EOBs from the beginning of the year through May all at once. There was a delay in the delivery of all Part D EOBs because of a technical issue with Change Healthcare, which has been resolved.
We are sending a communication to members letting them know they should expect their EOBs to arrive. 

The volume of EOBs may prompt questions from your Clients. 

As their trusted agent, your support in addressing any concerns is invaluable. We appreciate your help reassuring educating members about the situation and reassuring them that their EOBs were processed correctly. 
Thank you for your partnership and dedication to providing excellent service to our members. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Account Executive.
