5 steps to start selling Marketplace health plans for new Agents


Before selling health insurance plans through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace (FFM) on HealthCare.gov, you’ll need to register, sign agreements, and complete required training. The 5 steps are below.

STEP 1. Create an account

IMPORTANT: Already have a CMS Enterprise Portal account? Don't create another! You'll just need to renew for 2021. Don't follow the steps on this page. Watch this video See how to renew for 2021

Go to the CMS Enterprise Portal at https://portal.cms.gov/

Select New User Registration (in the box at the upper right) and create an account.

*** Under choose your application select: MLMS : Marketplace Learning Management System

STEP 2. Identify yourself as an agent or broker

Log in to your new Enterprise Portal account at https://portal.cms.gov/

Select Request Access Now.

Select the FFM/Training - Agents/Brokers/Assisters tile.

Select FFM Agent Broker from the dropdown menu.

STEP 3. Confirm your identity

Provide basic information that lets us confirm your identity (known as “identity-proofing”). Make sure this information matches your credit information.

Confirm your NPN number https://nipr.com/help/look-up-your-npn

After you’re identify-proofed, you’ll be sent to the CMS Enterprise Portal home page.

Log out of the Enterprise Portal.

Wait a few minutes for the agent/broker role to be assigned to your profile.

STEP 4. Take required training

IMPORTANT: You can take free training from CMS, or sign up for a paid course through a CMS-approved vendor. Vendor training may offer continuing education units (CEUs). Free CMS training doesn't offer CEUs. We recommend the free course as it is easier to complete

Log in to the CMS Enterprise Portal at https://portal.cms.gov/

Select Complete Agent Broker Training.

Select the Access Training link next to Marketplace Learning Management System (MLMS) or a CMS-approved vendor.

Complete the required profile information and select Save/Update. (If you're taking training with a CMS-approved vendor, you'll do this before signing the CMS Privacy and Security agreements.)

Select the appropriate curriculum (Individual Market or SHOP).

Enroll in the curriculum and select Complete Enrollment.

Complete all required training.

STEP 5. Sign the privacy and security agreements

Go to Current Learning to launch and electronically sign the CMS Privacy and Security agreements.

Select Curriculum State and click the Actions link (to the right of a completed curriculum).

Print your Registration Completion Certificate.

STEP 6. Obtain contracts with the carriers to earn commissions
