Plan Year 2022 Registration and Training

Plan Year 2022 Marketplace Registration and Training is Live

Plan year 2022 Marketplace registration and training for agents and brokers is now available on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Enterprise Portal.

Annual Marketplace Registration and Training Requirements

New Agents and Brokers

Agents and brokers who are new to the Marketplace this year, or who did not complete plan year 2021 registration and training, are required to take the full Individual Marketplace training for plan year 2022. New agents and brokers can take Individual Marketplace training through the Marketplace Learning Management System (MLMS).

Returning Agents and Brokers

Agents and brokers who completed plan year 2021 Individual Marketplace registration and training are eligible to take shorter training for plan year 2022. Returning agents and brokers will be automatically enrolled in the Marketplace Training for Returning Agents and Brokers, a shorter training that is approximately ninety minutes long. The curriculum for the Marketplace training for returning agents and brokers consists of a self-paced review of Marketplace resources and updates. As part of the Agent Broker General Agreement, agents and brokers must attest to completing the required reading and review of the materials in order for their training to be considered complete.

For plan year 2022, training is not available through America's Health Insurance Plans, Inc.

Key Registration and Training Resources

Agent and Broker Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM) Registration Completion List

The Agent and Broker FFM Registration Completion List (RCL) contains the National Producer Numbers (NPNs) for agents and brokers who have completed Marketplace registration for plan year 2020. CMS posts this list as frequently as daily. All NPNs are self-reported by the agent or broker during Marketplace registration, and should be validated against state and/or other The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) records to confirm state licensure.

The Agent and Broker FFM Registration Termination List (RTL) contains the NPNs for agents and brokers whose FFM agreements and registration for the 2018 plan year have been terminated by CMS. Termination is described in regulation at 45 CFR 155.220(f)-(g).

Issuers, web-brokers, and agents and brokers can access the RCL and RTL by following the link below:
