Aetna MA/MAPD Certification and Attestation Components

  • If you’re recertifying and you completed last year’s AHIP training requirements, you can follow a recertification track of modules 4-5 only, plus the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse training/exam. You should still reacquaint yourself with modules 1-3 since the final exam covers all five modules.

2. Core training and exam: Provides a high-level view of Aetna’s Code of Conduct and Medicare Compliance Program to satisfy annual CMS certification requirements.

3. Broker attestations:

  • FDR attestation: An attestation for First Tier, Downstream and Related Entities. 
  • Market-specific training attestation: An attestation acknowledging that you'll need to complete market-specific training for every state and market where you plan to sell. To find and register for a market-specific training, visit AetnaMedicareAgentTraining.com and search for events by state. 
  • Third-party website attestation: An attestation for contracted agents/brokers and entities who use a website to reference or promote MA/MAPD plans, or to obtain beneficiary information for the purposes of marketing or enrollment into an Individual Medicare plan.

Aetna is transforming health care by partnering with local doctors, nurses and other providers to make sure members receive the right care at the right time and in the right place. Aetna is committed to connecting members to coordinated, accessible, affordable, and personalized health care right where they live. Aetna model is called “value-based care”; where physicians are paid based on the quality of care, not quantity.

Aetna currently offers HMO, PPO, HMO with Travel Advantage, and PPO with Explorer plans. Aetna Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans are in 39 states with market expansions.

Portability elements of Aetna plans consist of ER and urgent care in the United States and worldwide; value-add travel discounts on nationally recognized brand-name products and services; national pharmacy network of pharmacies and seamless medical network of providers throughout the United States. Covered plan services do not require Primary Care Provider (PCP) referrals for specialist care. The visitor travel program allows members to remain in their plan for an additional 6 months when they are traveling outside the plan’s service area. Without the visitor traveler program, CMS mandates that members be disenrolled if they are outside the plan’s service area for more than 6 months. Travel Pass is a snapshot of member-specific health care elements such as selected PCP, medication history, vaccine history, and other information. Aetna plan offerings and considerations may vary by plan and by geographies. Provider participation varies by state.
