Online training opens today, June 21, 2021 for plan year 2022 MFWA (Medicare + Fraud, Waste and Abuse) Training. This CMS-required yearly training is most commonly completed through AHIP, and is required by most insurance carriers to offer their MA and PDP plans.
AHIP is a Medicare training course accepted by CMS (AHIP simply stands for “American Health Insurance Plans).
