Word of accreditation for the CMP™ has spread like wildfire in the last few weeks, sparking a whole host of interest in the designation. For the first time ever, all of the communities composing Medicaid planning have come together to establish a universal standard of competency and ethics applicable to all who seek to demonstrate their proficiency and competency through certification.
As seen here, the accreditation announcement mad the PR Newswire sign in Times Square. The result of this widespread attention has been a increase in interest in the designation by legal, financial and medical professionals wanting to enhance their knowledge of Medicaid planning and seek certification.
The CMP™ Board is committed to operating a world-class certification program that the public can rely on to identify knowledgeable and competent Medicaid Planners. A CMP™ is considered the best-of-the-best in the field, being recognized as having the education, experience to adequately help applicants navigate the complicated long-term care Medicaid program. A CMP™ must pass a rigorous examination that tests both knowledge of the Medicaid planning process and application of effective planning and advocacy techniques. All CMP™ certificants must also agree to abide by the CMP™ Ethical Principles and be subject to the CMP™ disciplinary process.
