Agents/Brokers: Plan year 2017 registration and training opens on Monday, August 1!

CMS is pleased to announce that plan year 2017 registration and training will open on Monday, August 1. Agents and brokers will be able to log in to their CMS Enterprise Portal user accounts and access the Marketplace Learning Management System (MLMS) to start the registration steps on August 1.  

Remember: Even if you successfully completed plan year 2016 registration, you can only assist consumers until October 31, 2016 when your plan year 2016 Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM) Agreement(s) for the Individual Marketplace and/or Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace expire. You must complete plan year 2017 registration and training to help consumers with 2016 coverage during November and December 2016, or to help them enroll for the first time or re-enroll in coverage for plan year 2017.  

To learn more about the agent and broker FFM registration and training requirements for plan year 2017, please register at www.REGTAP.infofor one of webinars described below. You are welcome to attend any one of the sessions, but CMS asks that you only register for one session.  

Two sessions remain of the “Plan Year 2017 FFM Registration and Refresher Training for Agents and Brokers Returning to the FFMs” webinar for returning agents and brokers. The webinar will provide an abbreviated review of the registration steps, and describe the new, condensed Refresher Training option available to you if you completed registration for the Individual Marketplace in plan year 2016.

  • Wednesday, August 3 from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET
  • Wednesday, August 10 from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET 

CMS will also hold one more session of the “Plan Year 2017 FFM Registration and Training for Agents and Brokers New to the FFMs” webinar for new agents and brokers on Thursday, August 4 from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM ET. This webinar will provide a detailed discussion of registration steps and training requirements to assure you have the information you need to complete all the registration steps, including some steps that returning agents and brokers need not perform.
