NAHU Named Preferred Provider of the New FFM Broker Training
(Sacramento, CA) – The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) announced last week that it is one of only three vendors selected to provide the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved Federally-Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) agent/broker training. NAHU is the only agent/broker association that was awarded this honor. All agents and brokers must complete the FFM registration and training in order to assist consumers with enrollment through the FFM.
Brad Davis, Past-President of SAHU and current Vice President of the state chapter CAHU, explained, “NAHU staff and member agents have been educating employers, associations, assisters, navigators, other agents and the general public since the law was passed in 2010. Much of their experience and knowledge on the subject matter came under the guidance of NAHU and its rigorous PPACA certification program; it’s only fitting, and an asset to all American health care consumers, that NAHU be one of the preferred educational vendors for the FFM.”
Agents and brokers who wish to participate in the FFM training must first complete a two-part registration process. The first part is a FFM agent and broker registration for plan year 2016 through the CMS agent/broker portal. The second step is to select a preferred provider of the FFM training. Following CMS guidelines, the training provides online instruction with webinar modules, a final exam and continuing education credits issued on a state by state basis.
