Association Approvals for WBT Credits

The Medicare Learning Network

Many professional associations offer continuing education credit for successful completion of CMS’ Medicare Learning Network® courses that can be used towards keeping a license or certification current.

 

If the association you belong to is not on this list, you may contact your association to see if they are interested in partnering with the Medicare Learning Network® or if they accept outside credit sources. If they are interested in partnering with the Medicare Learning Network®, the association should e-mail CMSCE@cms.hhs.gov.

 

Please click on the association below to access detailed information about what you need to do to receive credit for a Medicare Learning Network® (MLN) web-based training (WBT) course for your professional association/organization:
