Recent news of NCCA accreditation of the Certified Medicaid Planner™ (CMP™) designation has raised awareness of the designation and has increased interest from many professions involved in Medicaid Planning.
The CMP™ program has received full national accreditation earlier this year by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
A quick check of the FINRA website reveals that although there are numerous designations, only six financial designations have national accreditation in the United States – the newest being Certified Medicaid Planner™.
Navigating the world of Medicaid long-term care is one of the most challenging ventures, even for those with an extensive legal, financial, or medical background. Our CMP™ certificants have proven that they have the knowledge and ability to successfully advise families of how to protect assets and provide the best care for their aging loved ones.
Prior to the existence of the Certified Medicaid Planner™ Governing Board, there was no universal accountability for those assisting consumers with Medicaid eligibility and planning. Long-term care planning overlaps a number of professions involved in the Medicaid Planning process. The CMP™ Governing Board has created a standard of ethics to which all certificants – regardless of professional background – can be held accountable.
High standards for ethics, accountability, and exam performance provide families in need of Medicaid Planning services with the confidence they need to know that a CMP™ is capable to handle their loved ones’ Medicaid eligibility issues.
