Account-Based Health Plans Certification


Course Instructors

About the Course

Our workforce is changing in terms of where we work, how we work and the way we work.  This means that health plans, particularly employer-sponsored health plans, are often offered with various types of accounts. Some accounts may even be offered on their own to be used in ways that are different than they have been used in the past.

Knowing which account to use for each of your clients is critical and NABIP has created a new course to ensure you remain on the cutting edge of innovative new opportunities.

The NABIP Account-Based Health Plans course brings all of this knowledge to one place and allows you to get the information you need through an online course. The course provides five hours of continuing education* and can be used as an elective for the Registered Employee Benefit Consultant® (REBC®) designation.
