Beginning on June 15, 2015, the 2014-2015 Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) healthcare agent and broker training and training curriculum completion certificates will no longer be available on the Medicare Learning Network (MLN) Learning Management System (LMS), as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) prepares to launch the training for the upcoming 2016 plan year, to be available later this summer.

What It Means to Agents: At this point, you should not sign up for a new plan year 2015 training curriculum. If you plan to print any certificates and have not yet done so, CMS recommends completing this training prior to June 10, 2015. In addition, if you wish to update your contact information displayed on Find Local Help, please make the appropriate updates to your MLN profile information no later than June 14, 2015.

For plan year 2016, the new Marketplace Learning Management System (MLMS) will replace the MLN for FFM-related agent and broker training activities. You will use your FFM user ID to log in to the CMS Enterprise Portal to complete FFM training, exams and Agreements in the new MLMS. At this time, training is not yet available for plan year 2016. CMS will notify all agents and brokers when they can begin taking the plan year 2016 training.
