Welcome to CareFree

At CareFree, we strive to help you build your Medicare business. As a contracted agent you will have access to a CareFree agent dashboard which will track your progress towards getting ready to sell and set you on the road to success. Below is a comprehensive list of everything you need to help you get started.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Broker Sales Manager. If you are unsure who your Broker Sales Manager is, Contact Us. To the right is a list of emails you should save to your contacts, should you ever have a question.

Logging Into Your CareFree Profile

All contracted CareFree agents have access to the resources on our website.

Review this quick video to see the resources available.

If you are a contracted agent and have trouble accessing your profile, reach out to us at: [email protected].

Licensing

Managing and maintaining your license(s) is critical. Set time aside to obtain and manage licenses in all the states you intend to sell.

Non-Resident Licensing

Where do you want to be able to sell? Do you have relatives, friends, or clients who live out of state? In order to serve anyone who doesn’t live in your state of residence, you must have a non-resident license.

Every state’s process for requesting a non-resident license is different. Use the NIPR to start the process by clicking Apply for a New License and following the prompts.

To sell carrier products you are already contracted with in the new non-resident state, request an appointment to the state through your upline.

Licensing Renewal

Every state has different requirements for Continuing Education to maintain a producer health license.

Use NIPR to find current licenses, apply for resident and non-resident licenses, and pay fees for renewals.

Your state’s Department of Insurance website has information about continuing education requirements.

CareFree has partnered with WebCE to reduce the costs of courses to complete these requirements. Sign up for discounted CEUs using these instructions.

Contracting with Carriers to Sell MAPDs/MAs/PDPs

What carrier’s products do you want to offer clients? We recommend a variety of carriers to ensure you have enough options to meet your clients’ needs. There is no limit to the number of carriers you can contract with.

Each carrier’s process is slightly different; however, there are three common elements:

Contracts

  • You only need to complete a contract the first year you are selling for the carrier. If you actively sell their products and recertify every year, the contract remains active.
  • You can request a carrier contract for your state of residence from your Dashboard or contact your Broker Sales Manager.
  • To request a carrier contract for a non-resident state, send an email to [email protected]. Include the carrier's name, your NPN, and the state in which you wish to be appointed or contact your Broker Sales Manager.

After you complete the contract and return it to the carrier, carriers will verify the information and complete background checks, and then provide certification instructions. Contract processing time varies by carrier and time of year.

AHIP

You must take and pass the AHIP exam every year. AHIP certification is an industry recognized method of proving that you have completed the required Medicare training courses and that you understand how to sell Medicare in a way that is compliant with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). You will only take this certification once a year, and you can share the score with most carriers.

AHIP costs $150 every year. CareFree Insurance Services will pay for your first year if you contract with at least two carriers with us. For subsequent years, many carriers offer discounts on the price of AHIP. Reach out to carriers for more information.
