Celebrating our 25th Year Anniversary - Helping Ohioans with Healthcare Benefit Choices

Ohio Association of Health Underwriters
supports its local associations in promoting free-market delivery of health care and the value of the professional agent.

Mission Statement
The Ohio Association of Health Underwriters exists as a resource to the local Ohio Chapters in the areas of communication, legislative advocacy, membership, leadership and position training, and shared programs.

OAHU Members Adhere to a Strict Code of Ethics
OAHU requires each of its members to always make health care coverage recommendations with the customer’s best interest in mind. Most professional insurance agents work very hard to provide their clients with the best possible service and price for their insurance products.

FEDERALLY-FACILITATE MARKETPLACE AGENT AND BROKER TRAINING
AND REGISTRATION FOR PLAN YEAR 2015 CLOSING

Note from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS):

Beginning on June 15, 2015, the 2014-2015 Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM) training and training curriculum completion certificates for Agents and Brokers will no longer be available on the Medicare Learning Network® (MLN) Learning Management System (LMS) as we prepare to launch the training for plan year 2016.  You should not sign up for a new plan year 2015 training curriculum after June 1. If you plan to complete any of the 2014-2015 training curricula (or print any certificates) and have not yet done so, CMS recommends completing this training prior to June 10, 2015. Please note that completion of the current year’s training curricula (2014-2015 training) does not count towards the plan year 2016 registration process for Agents and Brokers.  

To see your completed curriculum certificates, sign in and go to the “Training Home” page, click “Transcript” on the blue task bar under the Health Insurance Marketplace logo. Click on the “Curriculums” view under the blue task bar and then click on “View Certificate” under the “Action” column. You should retain copies of these curriculum certificates in order to provide them to the health insurance issuers and web-brokers with whom you are affiliated for assisting with plan year 2015 enrollments.


MARKETPLACE & SHOP - NEW TRAINING HELP

You should review the new training and certification process for the ACA Marketplace plans for individuals and SHOP.

The registration process for agents and brokers in the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces (FFM) is now live for the 2015 plan year!  You can begin by accessing Part I (training, exams, and the FFM Agreements) on the Medicare Learning Network® (MLN).
