Update: New contracting tool will go live July 1
As you know, we’re transitioning to a new enhanced contracting process for Allina Health | Aetna Medicare products. We’re excited about the efficiencies this new tool will bring. It’s going to shorten and simplify the entire contracting process. To help ensure a successful rollout, we’re moving the start date for the new contract tool to July 1. Learn more about the new contracting process.

Save the date: 2020 producer certification begins July 10
The producer certification process for 2020 Allina Health | Aetna Medicare products kicks off on July 10. Certification is one of the annual requirements you must complete to sell our 2020 plans during AEP. Our 2020 producer certification includes AHIP, plus several Aetna-specific training modules, and costs only $125 (retail prices is $175).
So even though AHIP plans to release their 2020 courses on June 17, we encourage you to wait and complete AHIP through our certification process starting July 10. It’s an easy way to save $50.  

Congrats to our 2019 Front Runner agents
We want to congratulate over 3,000 agents for achieving 2019 Front Runner status based on their sales during this past AEP. The Front Runners program is an annual rewards and recognition program for our top-selling agents. This year, we expanded the program so now there are even more perks to achieving Front Runner status. For example, our 2019 Front Runner agents will receive rewards including FREE 2020 Aetna Individual Medicare certification (which includes AHIP), and a credit valued at $500-$2000 for marketing materials from the Aetna Medicare Marketing Studio!
Watch for more information about the new 2020 Font Runners program coming soon. We plan to announce sales criteria for the 2020 program in September.
