Each year, AHIP's Medicare + Fraud, Waste, and Abuse (MFWA) Online Training comes out in June for the following plan year.

AHIP has the health insurance industry's most widely recognized training. It meets CMS requirements and is where more than 100,000 agents go to complete their MFWA training each year.

Here's what you need to know about the AHIP for the 2025 plan year.

2025 AHIP Discounts

Don't pay full price for the AHIP! You can count on a $50 discount every year.

We have an AHIP discounts article you can reference. We update it each year, but for the most part, the instructions have stayed the same. 

2025 AHIP Study Guide

The AHIP is an open-book exam, but it's still a good idea to do some studying beforehand, especially if this is your first time.

The best AHIP study guide is simply the review questions in the quizzes.

According to our staff, many of whom take the AHIP each year, most of the questions on the final exam are the same as the review quiz questions.

You can find more details about how to save the quizzes as a PDF, plus other printables, here.

2025 AHIP FAQs

What is the deadline for AHIP 2025?

The AHIP for the 2025 plan year will likely release the third week of June, 2024. There is no deadline when it comes to taking the AHIP. Carriers used to require the AHIP ahead of contracting, but now, most carriers allow you to get contracted before you take the AHIP.

The only real blackout for the AHIP is the first two weeks of June, typically. This is the period of time before the new AHIP for the following year is released. In 2025, the first two weeks of June will likely have no AHIP training available as the 2024 version is phased out and the 2025 version prepares to launch.

Do I need to take the 2024 AHIP after the 2025 version comes out?

If you want to sell Medicare Advantage plans in 2024, but the 2025 AHIP has already come out, you typically don't need to take both the 2024 and 2025 AHIP. The vast majority of carriers will accept the 2025 AHIP to sell their 2024 products. An exception is Zing, but reach out to us if this is a concern, and we will guide you through it.

How many questions are on the AHIP 2025 exam?

The AHIP exam has historically had 50 questions on the final exam. We don't anticipate that changing for the 2025 plan year.

How long does the AHIP course take?

The first time you take the AHIP course and exam could take you 8-10 hours. However, after several years, you'll find you can complete the course and the exam in under 2 hours.

Is the AHIP certification hard?

The AHIP certification can be challenging – it has somewhat of a reputation among agents as being difficult. That's especially true for those who are just bad test takers. That said, it's important to know the information you're being tested on. By going through the training modules and studying the quizzes, you should be able to make it through the AHIP without any horror stories.
